clint spotleson, beverage director

Much as a chef would, Beverage Director Clint Spotleson takes his inspiration from fresh, high-quality ingredients. Prior to joining the team at Eden, Clint worked at Herbs & Rye in Las Vegas, where his team won coveted industry awards including “Best American Bar Team” and “Best High-Volume Cocktail Bar” at Tales of the Cocktail. He has also served as lead bartender at Counter Intuitive and the Second Story Liquor Bar in Scottsdale, but his career “behind the stick” spans 21 years and countless opportunities to pour a perfect drink – and make a guest smile. 


Clint is a collector of tiki mugs; his prized collection includes mugs from events, vintage purchases, travels, and more. When he is not behind the bar (or mug hunting), he enjoys mountain biking, exploring, art museums, and spending time with his family.
