If you’ve visited DaddyO anytime within the last 5 years, then you’ve probably been greeted with a friendly smile by our very own Gabrielle (Gab) Ward. She began working for Fearless as a Front Desk Associate in 2017, but asked to start training behind the bar at only 19 years old, making her one of Long Beach Island’s youngest and most eager bartenders. Now 24, Gab is in her final semester of graduate school looking to receive her MBA by May of 2022 and hoping to have her passion project, an Absecon-based craft brewery entitled Royal Bine Brewing, open before the end of the year. Whether she’s hiding behind our service bar pumping out hundreds of specialty cocktails on a Saturday night in July or being the first to welcome you to our rooftop bar, Gab is always in high spirits as she exudes hospitality and cares deeply about her craft.⠀

“I can’t imagine where I would be if not for DaddyO. I have grown as a bartender, as a confident young woman, and as a hospitality professional since I began with Fearless in 2017. My coworkers are my teammates, my best friends, and I’m so fortunate to be able to continue learning, growing and shaking drinks besides some of the most talented and passionate humans in the area.”⠀
