With a modicum of mischief, Ronnie replies "open my eyes" when asked what the first thing he does when he wakes up in the morning. This 42-year old grew up in San Francisco's Mission District, and still calls it his favorite hood - and his home.
The last place Ronnie touched down was Copenhagen and his artistic instincts combined with extensive bartending experience have helped him gain a loyal following at the Tenderloin's too-cool-for-school cocktail haunt, where there's no menu and no two cocktails are ever the same.
When he's not mixing drinks or loving on MJ, his adorable Instagram star pup, you can find him noshing on fare from Puerto Allegre. Come Sunday, he'll take doughnuts over dim sum and around home, his prized possession is his easel.
"Stealthy casual" is how he describes his personal style, and with a not-so-secret love of Batman, you start to understand Ronnie a little more. Crack into his inner circle and you might just find an orange-rind garnish in the shape of a bat on your next drink.
