Ampersand specialized in craft beer & cocktails, with a full service restaurant providing fresh, locally-sourced organic ingredients, as well as a music venue and bar on the second floor.

The third floor loft space was available for gallery exhibitions, private events, and catering. Ampersand also offered outdoor seating, a late-night food window, and a continually rotating selection of local art. Opened in March 2014, I worked with Ampersand from July 2014 until the building was sold in August 2016. The new owners chose not to renew the lease.

During my time with Ampersand, I orchestrated several food photography shoots to ensure high quality up-to-date images of the current menu, attended live events, including the grand opening, Jazz nights, St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and the wrap party for the cast of the Do Over, a Adam Sandler film made for Netflix.
