I work for a company called Arc Inspirations who operate up North. I’m currently the Bar Manager of Banyan in Leeds but in the next couple of weeks I will be moving over to one of our other bars, Manahatta, as the General Manager.
This is something that I learnt from customers. Less ice means more alcohol. And if the bartender puts too much in then the correct way to handle that is to scoop it out and throw it on the bar top.
Having one of my drinks served at London Cocktail Week was pretty cool. Also being invited to 50 Best Bar awards this year and being in a room full of people I follow on Instagram. And of course having my drink named the Best Bloody Mary in the country.
That depends on how far away payday is. I’ll either be found in one of Leeds’ many bars or at home with the dog.
Well I have a degree in Biomedical Science with Human Biology (fancier than it sounds) so maybe I would be in a lab somewhere. However towards the end of my degree I fell in love with bartending and only just managed to finish it.
