DRINK is an established and ambitious wine and spirits store in the rapidly growing neighborhood of Prospect Lefferts Gardens, with a stunning in-store shopping experience. We feature a thoughtfully curated selection of low-intervention wines and craft spirits but we emphasize education and accessibility for our clientele over formality or pretentiousness. We serve a vibrant and diverse community in Prospect Lefferts Gardens and we have an equally vibrant and diverse team led by GM and spirits buyer Leif Young Huckman.

Leif made his mark with the award-winning bar Donna Cocktail Club in Williamsburg, and it’s follow-up The Hidden Pearl, as well as consulting for companies including The Four Horsemen, Soho Grand Hotel and Palms Heights Resort in Grand Cayman. DRINK is looking for an experienced, emotionally intelligent, and detail oriented wine buyer to join Leif in bringing the same intentionality to our wine program, and to support day-to-day management.

The candidate we're looking for is passionate about the industry and culture of wine and committed to making a successful career in it. If you are looking to work in a professional and supportive environment and if you want to grow with an established company that has built an exciting platform for expansion, we would love to speak with you. If you're looking for an unchallenging, vanilla desk job, this is not for you! Please submit a résumé, with cover letter and references. Minimum 2 years full-time wine buying experience in either a retail OR hospitality setting preferred.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
