Hi! I'm Brynn Smith, your resident cocktail shaker and the gal behind Bartending Pretty.

An Angeleno by way of a small town in Washington state, I've worked in the hospitality industry for over ten years, during which time I developed a voracious passion for concocting libations. In 2011, at the height of the craft cocktail renaissance, that passion became a full-time career — and I've since been lucky enough to work under some of the city's best mixologists. Live in the area? Come say hi! I'm currently the Bar Director at Sotto restaurant.

So... what's Bartending Pretty all about?

Bartending Pretty is where I share my personal recipes, tips, and tricks for making all my favorite cocktails. I've developed a personal philosophy that's anchored in a love of a fresh juices, seasonal produce, old world spirits, and small batch artisanal liquor, all of which I combine with my essential (and favorite!) ingredient: beauty. Simply put, Bartending Pretty is all about sharing that philosophy, and inspiring people to bring incredible flavor to their at-home bars, complete with a little art, whimsy, and glamour.
