Boris Van Dyck - Principal

Boris grew up working in his family’s restaurants across the globe. During his time in Belgium, the Caribbean and New York, he cultivated a life-long passion for food, wine and spirits. Today he continues to draw on the exotic locations and foreign cultures to create fresh, innovative cocktails.

In 2007, Boris harnessed his passion for mixology and years of experience in the food & beverage industry to launch ICEBOX. His goal was to bring a new level of professionalism and sophistication to the Charleston cocktail scene.

The success of ICEBOX paved the way for Boris to open his next venture, Event DRS (now known as EventHaus), which opened its doors in 2009. Encouraged by the thriving Charleston event scene and the evolving roles of ICEBOX and Event DRS within the local and regional event community, Boris, alongside business partners Matt McKeown & Alex Clayson, launched another venture known as Haus Tents and Lighting (now known as EventHaus), in the Summer of 2012.

In conjunction with several local mixology enthusiasts, Boris spearheaded the formation of the first United States Bartender’s Guild – Charleston Chapter. He also serves as Spirits Chair for the BB&T Wine + Food Festival and works as a consultant for many local, national, and international restaurants and bars.
