Bar Manager Rocco Tolomeo

Our Bar Manager Rocco Tolomeo has been on board since April 2021. The Fontenay is his first stop in the north: "I feel very comfortable in Hamburg. The many bridges and the water remind me of Venice. I appreciate the diversity of different neighborhoods and lifestyles, from Schanze to Blankenese. Hamburg's guests have high quality standards and appreciate good hospitality," says Rocco Tolomeo.

The 40-year-old grew up near Stuttgart in Bietigheim-Bissingen in a family of restaurateurs. He became enthusiastic about creations with food at an early age and began his training as a hotel manager at the Maritim Hotel Stuttgart with bar specifications. After graduating as an international bartender in Munich, he continued his education as a hotel business administrator in Stuttgart. Before moving to The Fontenay, Rocco Tolomeo was Bar Manager at Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Munich.
