Born and raised in Oakland, CA, Kyle Tran grew up in a family of restaurant owners. During his time at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx, Tran worked as a bar back to make some extra money, though his real passion at the time was photography. After graduation, Tran moved back to Oakland to work as a photographer and picked up odd bartending jobs to supplement his income. In 2011, Tran landed at San Francisco’s Roka Akor working under Jason Huffman. It was there that he decided to pursue bartending as a career. After two years, Tran landed himself a job at Chicago’s The Aviary, honing his mixology chops under Micah Milton and Julia Momose. In 2015, he moved back to the Bay Area to oversee beverage at the Lafayette Park Hotel, where he worked for two years before returning to New York to open Bowery Road and Library of Distilled Spirits.
