Spotlight: Matthew Harrell: The MAN behind our New MANager


Matthew is no stranger to Swinging Richards. He has been one of our top mixologists for three and a half years. In this time, he’s worked closely with management to help organize Pride celebrations and our many charity events. He’s also been a key player in our New Year’s Eve Parties and is working hard to make “NYE 2017” one of the best.

One accomplishment Matthew is proud of is his participation in the Stoli Bartender Competition.  He was selected by our Stoli Vodka rep and he competed with several other bartenders from other popular clubs in the city.  Matthew expresses the honor it was to be included and although he didn’t place, he had a blast!

Matthew is more than just a handsome face, he has brains to back it up.  He has an Masters of Art in Literature and enjoys writing for queer publications.  See some of Matthew’s work here at

Matthew’s favorite specialty cocktail to make is a fruity Vodka mix called a Gummy Bear.  When he can enjoy a cocktail of his own, he sips with the BIG BOYS. His drink of choice is Johnny Walker Scotch.

Come out Friday night, November 11th for Swinging Richards first “Meet our New MANager Night,” and congratulate Matthew on all his accomplishments.  And don’t forget to say the secret password … It’s Matthew’s middle name:  GRADY.
