Samuelsson To Visit Bermuda With Dosa Ivanov

October 17, 2019

Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson is heading to Bermuda to join world champion Swedish bartender, Dosa Ivanov, in hosting a series of cocktail centred events at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club next week.

A spokesperson said, “Ivanov, a Bar Manager at the Clarion Hotel Post in Gothenburg, Sweden, is visiting Bermuda for the first time to share his recipes and knowledge with local bartenders at the hotel. His visit comes as part of Samuelsson’s commitment, following his upbringing in Sweden, to sharing a love of all Swedish.

“Ivanov is winner of two 2015 International Bartenders Association World Cocktail Championships, taking home the first place prize for Best Long Drink and the overall prize for World Bartender of the Year.

“The weekend of festivities will kick off with a special Happy Hour at Marcus’ on Friday, October 25th, where guests will have the opportunity to try Ivanov’s Bermudian inspired cocktails: Bermuda Project, Pink Princess, Stairway to Rum Swizzle and Stop N’ Smell the Rosés.

“Each event will be accompanied by complimentary bar bites while guests kick back to the sound of the Big Chill. No reservations are required.

“For those who want a masterclass in cocktails, there will be an opportunity to learn from the Ivanov himself at a special cocktail demonstration, class and lunch on Saturday, October 26th from 12pm until 2pm. Places must be reserved and cost $95 including lunch, not including gratuities.

“While wine pairing dinners are now the norm, Samuelsson and Ivanov have turned things on their head with a special cocktail pairing menu, where the dinner has been carefully crafted around the bartender’s Bermudian inspired creations.

“For those who prefer, there is a special juice pairing option available, which has also been carefully concocted by Ivanov for $95 plus gratuities.

“For those who want to make a day of it, a bundled ticket to the cocktail class, lunch and cocktail pairing dinner is available for $165 plus gratuities. Tickets to all of Saturday’s events can be purchased from

“There will be one last chance to try Ivanov’s cocktail creations at Marcus’ from noon until 3pm on Sunday, October 27th. These drinks will be inspired by those traditionally served during Swedish brunches.

“Reservations for Brunch Revolution can be made by calling dining reservations at 298-2028 or emailing”

Dosa Ivanov said: “I am delighted to be visiting Bermuda for the first time with the wonderfully talented Marcus Samuelsson and I look forward to working with Hamilton Princess & Beach Club’s bartenders to exchange ideas.

“I cannot wait to experiment with and experience the local flavours and to share my new creations with the hotel guests and locals.”

Marcus Samuelsson said: “It’s great to be back on the island and I’m so excited to be introducing my friend, the cocktail legend, Dosa Ivanov, to Bermuda. We have a great selection of events for cocktail connoisseurs with new, amazing locally inspired cocktails and an incredible cocktail pairing dinner.”
