A DEDICATED LINEUP OF CHEFS
We’ve been creating delicious food for years
From The Chef…
Hello foodies of Jacksonville. We are excited to serve you at Element Bistro and Myth Nightclub. It’s time to let your pallet get lost in an amazing dining experience.
My name is Darriun Wheeler, and I am the head chef of Element Bistro and Lounge /Myth Nightclub. My culinary journey started at the age of eighteen when I enrolled in the job core. I chose culinary arts as my elective and it wasn’t long thereafter that I knew that I had found my true passion in life. After several years in training, I was chosen by my piers to further my education at La Cordon Bleu in Las Vegas. I studied there for a year and a half where I graduated at the top of my class. After fine tuning my skill, I was ready to advance in my career, working at some of Jacksonville’s top restaurants including, but not limited to: Matthew’s, Medure’s, and Three Forks. Throughout my journeys I learned to cook with an open mind, absorb every piece of knowledge I could gain from my mentors, and truly serve those that enjoy an exciting, creative cuisine.
I have been blessed with a loving wife and beautiful daughter who support my career in the culinary arts. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope to be making you a fantastic meal in the very near future. Come in, say hi, and indulge in the Elements at Element Bistro, Bar and Lounge.
Locally Sourced & Organic Food

Our Love for Food
Here at Element Bistro, Bar and Lounge, it is our goal to source the freshest foods direct from local farmers markets. Jacksonville has a lot to offer, and we want other local businesses to thrive from our efforts. In addition, we want you to enjoy the freshest, organic foods this city has to offer.
Our light and healthy menu is like nothing you’ve ever seen at a bar. Isn’t it about time we changed the norm from unhealthy fried bar foods, to something you can feel good about eating? You’ll also find that our creative cuisine goes great with our amazing drink menu, where you can enjoy some of the most unique drinks infused with fresh fruits, and mixed by the city’s top mixologists.
