Chandra Lucariello

Southern Wine & Spirits of Hawaii


Chandra Lucariello is currently the Director of Mixology for Southern Wine & Spirits of Hawai‘i and has been in the restaurant and bar industry for 14 years.  She first started her career in the hospitality industry to fund her education, gaining an English degree from the University of Hawai‘i, and a Masters in Business Administration from Hawai‘i Pacific University.  Following graduation, she soon realized that the business she was truly passionate about was the business of crafting perfect cocktails. Initially getting her start at Southern Wine & Spirits, she joined the fine wine division, being exposed to the best wine portfolio in the state, and having the honor of learning from Master Sommeliers Chuck Furuya and Roberto Viernes. 

Chandra has consulted for properties such as The Four Seasons, St. Regis and Trump Tower to name a few. She believes, bartenders, or bar chefs should see their craft as an art, and treat it as such.  It is then, that bar patrons will perceive their time as a visual and sensory experience that will leave them wanting more.  It is with this same fervor and dedication that Chandra employs while she creates drink lists, conducts spirits education classes and executes events.
