Matt is well known in South Minneapolis as both a friendly bartender with an epic mustache, and as a standup fighter for social justice. Since the opening of the Cocktail Room, Matt has been greeting Du Nord’s guests with a smile and often a palm-wrecking high-five. Before earning his B.A. in public relations, Matt spent three years living in China and perfecting his Mandarin speaking skills. When he’s not behind the bar, Matt spends his time working for Neighborhoods Organizing for Change, where he helps grassroots efforts work toward better social and economic justice in the Twin Cities and beyond.
