“The place for a Negroni”
Born in Canberra, Australia, Josh Mazza found his love of wine and the hospitality industry in the wine regions of Central Victoria after a family move to the regional center of Bendigo. While studying with the Australian Sommeliers Association to acquire accreditation as a Sommelier, Josh further immersed himself in the world of wine and the industry around it. In the early 2000’s, Josh formed a boutique consulting group with some of Australia’s most talented young hospitality professionals and, subsequently, shifted focus from wine service to management systems and training programs. The success of this group motivated Josh to pursue larger plans, prompting a trip to the United States in 2009, during which he met his New York-based wife Aliya and permanently relocated. Being in the birthplace of the cocktail inspired Josh to study the history and techniques of the great American barsmiths. Training under and working with some of the industry’s most talented contemporary exponents, he quickly gained a reputation for his honest, unadorned and warm brand of hospitality. In 2013, Josh and Aliya formed Qualia Hospitality, providing consultancy services to small businesses. The company is growing quickly, adding UK import Francis Verrall and New Mexico native Stephen Laycock this year. Current projects include Ducks Eatery, Spigolo and The Gilroy in Manhattan andPerch & Garden set to open in Long Island City in the Spring of 2014.
