Mixologist Dominique Awad
Dominique Awad was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She began her career in Food & Beverage as a cocktail server at Delmonico Steakhouse, requiring her to learn every drink and ingredient. A few years later, she transferred to cocktails at Bellagio and participated in several bartending competitions.
Her fascination in creating new drinks and modifying recipes comes from her interests in cooking. Her Grandparent’s owned a restaurant, Angelo's Cornucopia in Syracuse, NY where she learned most of the family recipes and enjoyed reinventing dishes with her own ideas.
While serving cocktails and participating in bartending competitions, Dominique was determined to eventually become a mixologist. After much time and dedication, she was able to transform her passion into her career. Dominique is currently a mixologist at Julian Serrano in ARIA and loves the fun & easy-going clientele.
Dominique’s favorite drinks to make are Caiprinhas and Cucumber Martinis. Her creativity and knowledge of flavor profiles sets her apart from other bartenders and mixologists. Be sure to pay a visit to Julian Serrano and experience her imagination!
