Serving patrons in Derby, CT, River Rock Tavern aims to become a staple in the culinary scene, and a highlight of what Connecticut bartenders have to offer in the form of creative cocktails.
Owners Brad and Sharon Purciello are bringing their high regard for family values into the workplace at River Rock Tavern. From cousin and General Manager, Paul Evan, to nephew Daniel Purciello in the kitchen, to contractor Steve Purciello, who has done beautiful work renovating the property, the Purciellos know to take care of their close friends and loved ones, and utilize the skills of the people who surround them to the benefit of all involved.
Brad and Sharon have lived in the valley for almost 25 years with their 21 year old son Cody, who is stationed in Spain as a Corporal in the Marine Corps, their daughter Cortney, who is a freshman at Quinnipiac University, and their niece Amber who is finishing up her last year in High School and aspires to follow in her cousins footsteps as a Marine. As vice president at M & T bank, Brad has served the valley community by providing mortgage services to thousands of its residents, as well as volunteering as an EMT for almost 30 consecutive years. Sharon has dedicated herself to raising her children for the past 21 years and is now Vice President of Operations in their new venture at 5 Main St. in Derby and along with husband Brad and cousin Paul look forward to expanding their brand in the near future.
