Morgan Hickory

Managing Partner at Ole Shakey’s

Maker: Beverage Professional

Born and raised in Vermont by a single mom and full-time bartender, I learned how to make a decent martini at a very young age. My first industry job was washing dishes at a Thai Food restaurant at 14, and it’s been nothing but ever since. I moved to Asheville in 2012, and fell in love with this little city. I have had so much fun at Shakey’s, and am honored to have had the opportunity to create a fun, open and lively space in this amazing town.
