On the 15th of February 2019, Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort proudly welcomed Steven Poirier as our new Beverage Manager, bringing with him an exceptional service attitude, strong interpersonal skills, and over 14 years of knowledge and experience in the hospitality circuit. Before joining the Sofitel team Mr. Poirier held the position of Bar Manager at Hôtel de la Marée in Rivedoux, France, and has also worked at some of the world’s most celebrated establishments including The Dorchester and The Ritz-Carlton in London.
On the 3rd of April, the Sofitel team alongside several guests and media representatives welcomed Mr. Poirier in true Krabi fashion at the Mixologist Madness event that took place at the resort’s sleek Explorer Bar, a venue recognised for its elegant colonial-inspired furnishings and relaxed atmosphere. The day-to-night affair had Mr. Poirier begin with an introduction about himself and his approach to bartending, which paved the way for a fun-filled afternoon of cocktail classes, where guests were encouraged to watch and actively become a part of the action.
After the cocktail classes, the evening portion of the event saw Mr. Poirier craft a selection of innovative signature refreshments out of local and imported ingredients, spirits and liquors that were enjoyed by all attendees. The tropical-inspired cocktails were an ode to Thailand’s warm and inviting culture and climate, and did well to highlight his extensive bartending talents.
The event marked a successful first quarter for the resort’s Explorer Bar, and we wish Mr. Poirier every success during his time in Krabi.
