Kendal Wallace, Master Mixologist

Kendal Wallace by Rob Parham

A desire to be an Ambassador for his country, coupled with his love for meeting people from all around the world helped to shape Kendal’s wish to be a Bartender/Mixologist. This love has endured for more than thirty years, and has taken Kendal to many countries to meet people who have enjoyed his numerous unique and tasty concoctions. Additionally, his love for languages and diverse cultures led him to travel to Mexico, Cuba, Guadeloupe and The Dominican Republic, which helped intensify his appreciation for his country and its people.

Physical fitness is of paramount importance to Kendal. His creed “age ain’ t nothing but a number” bears witness to the discipline and dedication he has for the martial arts. Kendal is a second degree black belt in Jui Jitsu and Shotokan Karate. This dedication and self-confidence is evident in any interaction one might experience with Kendal. Daily, you may meet Kendal behind the bar at Chat ‘N’ Chill™ singing a popular Bahamian song or dancing around. Not to worry that he will take care of you and make you something special, as he prides himself with outstanding customer satisfaction and consistent positive customer reviews and feedback.

Kendal says, “Life is what you make of it. When offered lemons– make lemonade.” Over the years, Kendal has endeavored in entrepreneurial aspirations in partnership with his brothers owning and managing a successful retail liquor and convenience store. His most recent venture, Wallace Painting and Tiling, with his brother Godfrey “Gully” completed the new Chat ‘N’ Chill™ Conch Bar. When not at Chat ‘N’ Chill™, you can find Kendal busy growing his e-commerce business. Kendal also enjoys sailing, traveling, reading, socializing, and the martial arts.
