This Just In: Lauren Festa, star bartender at FT33, picks up shaker, moves to Mansion on Turtle Creek


An alert reader who knows a good intoxicologist when he meets one, says Lauren Festa has picked up her shaker and relocated from behind the bar at FT33 to the Mansion on Turtle Creek. Festa couldn’t be reached for comment, but a post on FT33’s Facebook page confirms the who and the what (without the where): “We are so sad to be losing one of the greatest bartenders in Dallas but Lauren Festa has another wonderful opportunity and we congratulate her on her next venture! You will be missed Lauren! Thanks for all the hard work, talent, professionalism and awesome personality. We will miss you!”

Yep, she will definitely be missed at FT33. One of the best bartenders in the city, for sure.
