Raymond Lopez
General Manager

Raymond Lopez

"Although I graduated with a degree in criminal justice, I wanted to stay in hospitality because I loved watching the memories that I was able to help create for all the guests I interacted with. I get to help people in a different and happier way."

Raymond began his hospitality career working at a theme park in his home city of Los Angeles. He took a break from the industry to pursue a degree in criminal justice in Phoenix, AZ. While going to school, he decided to work as a server assistant at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. It was at this moment when he realized how strong his passion for hospitality really was. From that point on, he worked his way up into management, including becoming the Assistant General Manager of Bourbon Steak. It is now, with great honor, that we welcome Raymond as the General Manager of Ironwood American Kitchen.

La Hacienda's Tequila Goddesses Hand-Select New Exclusive Barrel

A friend recently asked me about working at this restaurant: Do I spend all my time traveling the world, sipping on the finest tequilas available? Well, I answered, not all my time. It’s true though: as one of La Hacienda’s Tequila Goddesses, I am very lucky to discover new drinks and dishes and be able to share those with our guests daily. But one perk is in fact learning more about tequila and the beautiful regions and people from which it comes from—the most recent of which being a trip to Jalisco, Mexico with my fellow Tequila Goddess, Christine Lord.
