The Wine Hustle Series | Alpana Singh, Master Sommelier, Restauranteur and Host of “Check, Please!"

I first heard Alpana Singh speak in June at the Welcome Conference in Lincoln Center. Her hustle was palpable and her story of personal “terroir” was galvanizing. So much so, I had to dive deeper. Her story of exploring change and pushing through fear, all the while becoming the youngest women to pass the final level of the Master Sommelier exam at the age of 26 is simply, incredible. Needless to say, I reached out to Alpana to find out more and the below is extraordinary. Grab your notebook, because there are a lot of motivational lines to add to your mantras!

The Wine Hustle Series | Ariel Arce of Niche Niche (and then some)

Ariel, a native New Yorker with an epic cool-factor, is known for her love for bubbly and has some incredibly unique concepts under her belt, Air’s Champagne Parlor and Toyko Record Bar to name a few. However, her latest project immediately took hold of my soul (and guess what, I haven’t even been yet). I’m hesitant to even share this with you because reservations are already ‘NYC tough’ and I need a table here every weeknight! I am thrilled to introduce to you the new (as of March ‘19) Niche Niche, a dinner party concept featuring a different wine host every night of the week. Just how I was drawn to Niche Niche, Ariel’s energy and motivation is insanely palpable. So grab some Cristal and get ready to feel fucking awesome!
