As Director of Operations, Shawn Barrack brings agile athleticism to the world of entertainment. His career in F&B started at 23 years old, when after retiring from from professional baseball he became a food runner for Chef Emeril at Lagasse’s Stadium. While honing his chops working the backline “nitty-gritty” alongside cooks and staff, he discovered the joy of interacting with guests and developed a passion for the craft of hospitality. His winning personality scored a home run with regulars and those returning each year for March Madness, making him a perfect fit for front-of-house where he worked his way up the ranks to General Manager. In 2015, Shawn joined Darden Restaurants where he was provided the opportunity to expand his knowledge around wine, spirits, and beer. Earning certifications from Cicerone and the Court of Master Sommelier, and acquiring a Master of WhiskeyTM accreditation from abroad, he became a major league player in the field of hospitality management. Following a second stint at Lagasse’s Stadium, he collaborated with Professional Sports Catering, powered by Levy to open; T-Mobile Arena, home of Vegas Golden Knights; The Las Vegas Ballpark, named Winner of 2019 MiLB Triple-A Best of Ballparks, and; Allegiant Stadium, home to NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders. In 2020, Shawn partnered with Art Houz Theaters to play an integral role in its early development. Today, the big hitter who began his 20-year career in baseball at three years old embodies the tenacity and competitive spirit of Downtown Las Vegas and its finest entertainment venue. Personal Note: Shawn and his wife Alyssa currently reside in Summerlin and welcomed their first child in early winter of 2021.
