The People Behind the Punch at Novela

Bar lead Christina Cabrera and "Punchmeister" Dillon Lockwood on tap at Novela.

Dillon Lockwood has always found himself behind the scenes.

In high school, Lockwood built sets, furniture and assembled rigging for musical productions and upcoming plays and shows. After graduation, Lockwood moved to SF, taking on barbacking gigs at the Burritt Room and even crafted root beer syrups and new seasonal items for The Ice Cream Bar and Soda Fountain.

Now during the day, when Novela's ownership is talking numbers and barbacks are squeezing citrus, Lockwood is in usual form, behind the scenes, crafting the next batch of punch that will be poured for hundreds of revelers that evening.
