Best Bartender: Nolan Kotyk (Ship & Anchor)


Nolan Kotyk (Ship & Anchor)

If you haven’t heard of the Ship & Anchor, we assume you’ve been living under a rock for the last 20 years. This cozy neighborhood pub has been around for decades, located on 17th Avenue S.W. where the rowdy weekend crowds get loud. But one major draw to this classic, popular pub is the talented bartender that has been behind the bar for almost two decades.

Nolan Kotyk has been bartending since his university years, and happened to find himself a job at the Ship soon after. Thinking that this would be a temporary position, Nolan quickly fell in love with the bar and the community surrounding it. People who have frequented this bar for years still rave about Nolan’s bartending. Hit the Ship this weekend and get Nolan to concoct you his newest cocktail creation or serve the coldest beer on tap they have to offer. Cheers!
