Vincent Donley

Vincent Donley is a graduate of Florida State University. Receiving his B.A. in International Affairs and Economics, Vincent started his mixology career at Chez Pierrre in Tallahassee, one of Florida’s most noted and recognized French bistro’s. Having won the Golden Spoon award many times (naming it one of the top 25 restaurants in the whole state of Florida), Chez Pierre provided a solid platform to which Vincent was able to learn from skilled mixologists at night while earning his degree during the day.

In October of ‘07 Vincent moved to Boston and came on board with 28 Degrees. Initially starting with one bar shift a week, Vincent quickly proved his skill set both creatively and professionally and quickly worked his way up to a head bartender. Having several of his cocktails selected for the award wining martini list, Vincent has cultivated a regular following and has been featured in the Boston Globe as well as a contributing writer for the 28 Degrees blog and website. “Working as a mixologist in a city like Boston has truly been a great experience. Aside from the notoriety and creative aspect, you get to meet so many great people, which has opened a lot of doors. Boston's bar and nightlife scene is very competitive and I’m truly thankful 3 years later it's still going strong for myself and 28 Degrees.”
