Shannon S. Evans
Hey there! My name is Shannon and I’m an event curator. I started working in events over 10 years ago as part of my communications roles at the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance and the World Bank in Washington, DC. A series of adventures led me to open a restaurant, bar and art gallery in Atlanta called Studio No. 7. I quickly learned that I hated running a restaurant, but I loved food and beverage and more importantly, I loved crafting experiences focused on both. At my core, I’m a storyteller and I believe that telling a good story is at the heart of curating a good experience. In 2016, Studio No. 7 became a full time event space. I’m now able to use my years of writing, crafting cocktails, photography, travel and general curiosity to help me tell stories around food and beverage. In addition to the space, I run a street food and cocktails dinner party series called Midnight Barbecue. I also curate experiences for clients such as Blackwell Rum, Martell Cognac and Heineken USA.
