About Mia Mastroianni

With over 20 years of experience in the service industry from Boston to Los Angeles and beyond, Mia Mastroianni became one of the founding bartenders of Soho House West Hollywood; the private members-only club where she remained a well-respected and often requested mixologist for the who’s who of Hollywood until 2016. Known for her tall figure and sassy fun attitude, “Tall Mia” has also opened Soho House locations in Miami Beach, FL and in Toronto, Canada – training their respective bar staffs on giving the highest quality of service, implementing proper technique, and executing incredible cocktails.

A familiar face in competitions of the bartender elite, in 2012 she won the prestiged Speed Rack competition in San Diego, and has competed for the national title among the top contenders in New York, twice. Mia has since transitioned to the judging side of the industry for multiple competitions. Her expertise led her to be cast as an expert mixologist on the highly-rated TV show “Bar Rescue,” taking pride in being a part of over 30 episodes. Having a background in theatre and a BFA from The Conservatory at The University of Miami, Mia is not camera-shy. In addition to Bar Rescue, her television presence includes cocktail segments for the VH1 Network and ABC. She stays current with industry and consumer trends by attending and speaking at various seminars and conferences, and continues her education in the spirits industry by traveling both locally and internationally to various distilleries and partnering with brands. These days, if she’s not consulting on a new cocktail menu or training a bar staff, Mia can be found on her couch in Los Angeles with her beloved cat Jack.
