Our Team

Erik Adkins--Bar Director

Erik has been bartending in San Francisco since 1993.   He is responsible for Slanted Door Group bar program. 

Todd Dubois--General Manager

Michael Lazar--Lead Bartender, Whiskey Concierge

Hard Water provides Michael with the perfect platform from which to disseminate years of patiently gathered and organized whiskey knowledge and experience to thirsty guests. The majestic whiskey wall, like some baroque church organ of barrel-aged bliss, is the perfect instrument upon which he can play and improvise endlessly…or at least until the bar closes each night. Program notes take the form of the lovingly detailed whiskey list, flight notes, and the monthly newsletter. Come and catch a performance!
