Derek Gamlin

Derek Gamlin established himself in St. Louis’ bar/restaurant scene more than a decade ago, when he opened Sub Zero Vodka Bar — the city’s first and only dedicated vodka bar, and home to the country’s largest selection of vodkas. He envisioned owning a drinking establishment unlike any other in town and has since expanded Gamlin Restaurant Group to include the award-winning Gamlin Whiskey House, an upscale steakhouse established in 2013, and 1764 Public House, designed to be a neighborhood destination with a menu influenced by classic St. Louis foods, opening in 2017.
