Taras Zavalnyuk

Assistant Bar Manager
Zavalnyuk’s culinary career began at age 15, and 13 years later, he continues to give his undivided dedication and passion to the art and magic of bartending. With deep respect to the cocktail alchemy, he prefers to create an individual drink following the guest’s taste and mood. A familiar face in the local and international bar community, Zavalnyuk has won multiple prestigious awards. At Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace, he is driving, leading and developing Xander Bar – a place with a legendary past and present.

“My first focus is always on the smallest details: glass temperature, the flawless technique, the uniqueness of flavours. When I feel confident about all the nuances, the best part begins. With my cocktails, I tell people stories about our culture and history, while introducing traditions and rituals. In Xander Bar, we do not just do drinks, we share emotions and memories.”
