Bartender

We suspect that one of the most appealing aspects of Jaime Ortiz — one that figured prominently in Dallas Voice readers handing him the title of Sexiest Bartender — is that he’s not some cocky stud but a shy, intelligent (he’s studying toward a career in marine biology) and genuinely kind young man. In just a few years behind the bar, he’s designed a few signature drinks (his favorite: The Sour Patch Kid), but it’s his mastery of people skills as much as his gift for mixology that scores him the most points.

Dancer

If you have watched Kyle Jonathan’s acrobatics as he dances at clubs around town, you might think he has a background in gymnastics. But no — he just jumped on a dancer pole about three years ago and discovered an innate ability to werk it! His fans obviously agree, as they voted Kyle their favorite half-clad nighttime entertainer of the year. We’re sure he’ll happily take a bow … though tips are also appreciated.
