COVER STORY | Mike Seminara of Bev’s Downtown Naperville


NAPERVILLE/WOODRIDGE/WESTMONT–Mike is a charismatic, outgoing, friendly, and loyal bartender at Bev’s in Naperville. He loves being able to talk to people and bring a little joy to their day; and enjoys the unique ambiance of the fine-dining pop-up liquor bar with its Mid Century modern vibes and upscale, made-from-scratch fare, craft libations, and distinctive experience.

“Mike is a pleasure to work with. He brings so much to the table. He is funny, hard-working and just genuinely a good person,” Alicia S. of Naperville says. “He is a very skilled bartender and has a creative mind with cocktails.”

With a passion for building things and a prior career in carpentry, Mike takes his job as a mixologist very seriously, so appreciates his downtime filled with music, concerts, and White Sox games. He is also an avid outdoorsman and loves spending time with his 14-year-old, Siberian Husky named Gino.
