Working at bar helped Maisani to come out of his shell.

In an interview with Frenchly, Maisani shared his experience of working at bar, 

“I’ve always been a night person, the bar got me out of my books and the cozy atmosphere of the Morgan and working in a social environment forced me to work on my timidity. It gave me self-confidence.”

Maisani is still in the bar industry, although today not as a bartender but as an owner. He owns three popular bars located throughout New York City namely;  Eastern bloc, Bedlam Bar & Lounge, and Atlas Social Club.

He is also as hardworking, confident, and influential as his boyfriend. 

At last, we want to wish the couple a very happy love life and all the best for future plans.
