Che Ramos

Che Ramos ’05 is a restaurant-and-bar kind of guy: He has spent nearly 20 years working at Triangle restaurants and bars, notably Vidrio and STIR, both in Raleigh, along with the University Club and Counting House at the 21c Museum Hotel, both in Durham.

In late 2020, Ramos started The Black Bourbon Guy to offer professional training as well as private whiskey tastings, cocktail classes and restaurant consulting with the goal of increasing the presence of people of color both behind the bar and among the patrons at the bars he likes to visit.
