Jo-Jo Valenzuela is an award-winning professional bartender in the D.C. metropolitan area. He is the general manager/managing partner at The Game Sports Pub in Adams Morgan, and Tiki, on the second floor. He has won numerous titles, including 2015 DC’s 8th Annual Rickey Champion; 2015 Margarita Wars Judges’ Vote Champion; 2013 and 2014 BBG Annual Best Martini in D.C; and Bourbon Steak’s 2013 DC Old Fashioned Throwdown. A former Brand Ambassador for Absolut Elyx and sister-brands, Beefeater and Plymouth Gins, Jo-Jo was recognized four times as DC and MD Pernod Ricard's Brand Ambassador of the month.
Jo-Jo is the founder of Jo-Jo The Barkeep Consulting, and is one of D.C's busiest beverage consultants.

“The name is generic. The food is not. The Game specializes in Philippine plates, each doted over by Jo-Jo Valenzuela, a veteran bartender who has long wanted to show off the regional cuisines of his homeland. For years, Valenzuela rubbed shoulders with some of Washington’s most accomplished chefs, and their influence is apparent in how he prepares and plates his food. His sizzling sisig, his Pinoy BBQ bowl, his gambas al ajillo, his binagoongan fried rice: They all balance tradition with refinement while never putting on airs. Valenzuela is not aiming for gastronomic heights beyond his reach. When you realize that you can pair your meal with one of his drinks, well, your pleasure deepens into something like joy. The Game is a sports bar where the cooking and the cocktails — not the TV — are the center of attention.” Washington Post- 25 Best Casual Restaurants by Tim Carman.
