Shakes and Tales with Alejandro Rueda and Nicolassa Lupercio
Shakes and Tales brings the island’s most familiar hospitality industry faces to host at Akademi, serve up a special range of drinks and share stories with our guests for one night only.
For the second of the series, Katamama General Manager Alejandro Rueda is joined by close friend and fellow Mexican hospitality professional Nicolaza Lupercio.
World wanderer Alejandro learned his trade in the Caribbean islands and then Mexico City where he studied Hotel Management at the Universidad Iberoamericana. Being part of the amazing team at Katikies Hotel in white-washed Santorini, Greece, was one of his proudest achievements before landing on Bali’s shores to lead the Katamama team last year. A multi-linguist – Alejandro speaks 6 languages and counting – Katamama’s down-to-earth GM is fascinated by local cultures, customs, people, flora and fauna.
Alejandro first crossed paths with Nicolaza in 2002 when the pair worked together at Deseo Hotel+Lounge in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. A tequila-lover at heart, Nicolaza opened up her own South American bar in Australia, Rojo Rocket, before landing a position as part of the opening team at Seminyak’s Mexican-themed party den, Motel Mexicola.
