Bartender Interview: Kris Kline
Kris Kline has become a very popular addition to the staff at Martinis Above Fourth-bringing a new twist to the award-winning restaurant and cabaret lounge in the heart of Hillcrest. He hails from a small town in Northern California and made his way to San Diego in order to enjoy the endless summers we all know and love here in SoCal. We caught up with this selfdescribed county boy, to get to know him a little better and a to get a sneak peek on the upcoming entertainment and events coming up in December at Martinis Above Fourth.
Kris, how long have you been a bartender at Martinis Above Fourth?
I started working at Martinis in September-I’m the new pup. I go to school full-time during the week but generally I’m at MA4 Thursday through Saturday nights and for certain events on Sundays.
What do you enjoy most about it?
The staff. I have known a few of the bartenders for a long time and they are very good friends. I am a social person by nature and enjoy the atmosphere-some of my favorite events at Martinis are Babette’s Bingo Brunch and our Cabaret.
Martinis Above Fourth features over 100 specialty martinis, do you have any favorites?
My favorite martini... hmm they are all so good! My two favorites would have to be the Dirty Executive (extra dirty) and the Pearl Necklace.
