Sam Penton has been called to the bars at the Rosewood Miramar.

In his role as director, he will oversee the ritzy hostelry’s cocktail program at its seven distinctive venues, including the Michelin star-rated Caruso’s, AMA Sushi, and the Manor Bar, the beach resort’s craft cocktail destination.

Penton will also design special cocktails and spirit packages for meetings and events at the resort.

A graduate of Arizona State University, he has spent the majority of his professional career working with the venerable bar Death & Company, recognized among North America’s 50 Best Bars, where he most recently served as general manager of the group’s Denver, Colorado, location.

Penton moved to the East Coast in 2021 to open Little Palm in Charleston, South Carolina, which was named one of Esquire’s Best Bars in 2022.

He is also a finalist for Diageo’s World Class Bartender of the Year 2022 and current competitor for the 2023 World Class Championship.

He’ll undoubtedly leave us shaken and stirred….
