24-year-old Vladyslav Buzko is a young talent to watch in the world of bartending. Since 2016, he has participated in competitions such as the Marie Brizard UAE Cocktail Championship, Monin Cup 2016 UAE and Chivas Master 2017, emerging as one of the final contenders in all three competitions.

Vladyslav’s experience spans across prestigious establishments such as The St. Regis Doha and Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). It was at the latter where Vladyslav conceptualised his first cocktail menu for Luna Sky Bar. The bar would go on to be awarded “Most Recommended Bar in Dubai” by Timeout Dubai

“The world-class hospitality that we were instilled to provide at these 5-star properties is something that I will advocate wherever I go. Hospitality is about making each guest feel good, and I hope that I can mark the start of those ‘feel good moments’ through the cocktails that I make,” shares Vladyslav.
