In 2016, Josh Harris and Morgan Schick founded BVHospitality, under which they created two of San Francisco’s most successful and celebrated cocktail bars: Bon Voyage! and Trick Dog. Trick Dog has been named semifinalist for three James Beard Foundation Awards for Outstanding Bar Program and was nominated for the prestigious award in 2015. Trick Dog has also been included on the 2014, 2015, and 2016 World’s 50 Best Bars lists, and has earned several nods from the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards, with wins for World’s Best Cocktail Menu and Best American Bar Team and nominations for World’s Best Cocktail Bar and Best American Cocktail Bar. Nightclub & Bar Media Group named Trick Dog Cocktail Bar of the Year in 2017. Trick Dog is the only establishment of its kind in the Bay Area to receive a three-star review from San Francisco Chronicle restaurant critic Michael Bauer. Their latest establishment, Bon Voyage!, opened its disco doors in October of 2018 and has been featured in Newsweek, Eater SF, SF Weekly, and 7×7 Magazine.
BVHospitality has engaged in a number of consulting projects for a variety of hotels and restaurants large and small. We’ve found there’s really no one size fits all approach, so we’d love to hear more about your project and take it from there to see if our services might be a good fit.
The Bon Vivants Scholarship
Bon Vivants Hospitality is committed to funding this scholarship with a minimum of $150,000 over the next five years to fully support the ScholarMatch services for five students, one added each year, for the entirety of their college experience. The funds are used for costs and items beyond tuition fees, which can be an impediment to low-income students, even with tuition assistance. These costs may include housing deposits, textbooks, personal or family emergencies, and activity fees.
