Home / Culture / Eli Juren (Saltine Oyster Bar)


Jacksonians have selected Eli Juren as the king of the Sexiest Male Bartender category again, his second consecutive win for the title.

Juren, who was gallivanting around Asia when we were writing Best of Jackson blurbs, works at Saltine Oyster Bar alongside this year’s Sexiest Female Bartender, Lauren Hood, and gave us an interview last year.

Juren told the JFP then that he was surprised to even be nominated. Bartending is fun for him because he is able to get out of his shell, socializing with customers, and because of the relaxed nature of his job, he said..

Apparently, Juren has kept up the charm and swagger throughout 2016. Congrats to the now-veteran Saltine barkeep for starting a winning streak. We hope you’re home in time for the party!—Arielle Dreher
