Craft Izakaya, which will settle in at Krog Street Market between The Luminary and Cockentrice, has its beverage manager. Nate Shuman is leaving Proof & Provision at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in July to take over the cocktail program at the Japanese bar/restaurant.
"After a 3 year run with the seriously awesome people at the Georgian Terrace Hotel and being given the opportunity to really stretch my cocktail legs and help make P&P the badass juggernaut that it is," Shuman said in a Facebook post, "I will be parting ways at the end of July to take the helm as beverage manager for Craft Izakaya in the brand-spankin-new Krog St Market complex! I am so proud and honored that I have been offered this chance to expand my understanding of global drinks culture and return to the hood that birthed the bar-nut that I have worked so hard to become!
"I'm not running out the door, come see me and have a toast to bright futures and tasty spirits! Then come August come hang out and lets eat some uncooked fish!"
