Sidney started his food and beverage career in the front of house as a server, but quickly realized his favorite place to be was behind the bar. After learning his way around every imaginable cocktail while managing several bars in Savannah, he began to crave a fine dining environment where he could express his creativity with craft cocktails. Sidney joined the opening team at Pacci in 2014 and has been a nightly fixture since.
Sidney is a storyteller and entertainer at heart and loves interacting with his patrons at the bar. He prides himself on using high-quality spirits and fresh ingredients, often making his own syrups, juices and infusions. He's constantly seeking inspiration for his next creation, encouraging his team to push the boundaries and think outside the box. The results are cocktails that are imaginative, memorable, and little works of art.
Sidney was born in Georgetown, SC and graduated from Christ School in Asheville before joining the military, doing active duty in Korea and Iraq. In 2005, he moved to Savannah and met his future wife, Teri. They have two beautiful girls, Aaralynn and Ava.
