Shannon Hood

Brenner Pass
Bar Manager
Richmond, VA

Shannon Hood has been working in the restaurant industry since 2005.  Born and raised in Upstate New York, she moved to Richmond, VA in 2011.  Over the last decade, her work history has ranged from craft beer bars to nightclubs. About three years ago, a passion for carefully crafted cocktails began to blossom.  She served as the Bar Manager at the former Portrait House and sister restaurant, Don't Look Back.  It was there that she found the creative freedom to begin learning the art of cocktails.  Most recently she has been bartending at the heavily cocktail-focused restaurant, Saison, in Richmond.  This month she will be leaving in pursuit of a new opportunity as the Bar Manager for Brenner Pass, an Alpine-inspired restaurant opening in May 2017.
