F&B Manager

Job description

We are looking for a driven F&B manager to join our hospitality-concept-with-a-difference in Bologna!

We are The Commons!  

The Commons is space within The Student Hotel that connects people from all walks of life, bringing students, travelers, freelancers, entrepreneurs and locals together — it’s where they share their love for food, drinks and discovering the other things we have in common. It’s the hybrid bar, restaurant and cafe for everyone — a coffee-fueled workspace for students, a cocktail bar for friends, a lunch spot for business meetings, a date night for lovers and a casual restaurant for families.
