Monica Berg

Where are you currently working?

Tayēr + Elementary

Tell us something about the industry we might not know!

According to numbers ( CAMRA) pubs are closing down at a rate of one every 12 hours – so go to your local pub and show them support!

What is your favourite cocktail?

A Dry Martini, Olive and twist

Ever had a bad-ass/rock n roll bartending moment?

Absolutely, but I also signed enough NDA’s to know not to talk about them!

Where will we find you on your nights off?

On Sundays you’ll most likely not find me at all….. as I’ll be home on my sofa!

If you weren’t tending bar, what would you be doing?

I don’t know if I’m honest. I’ve only ever worked in hospitality, so it’s difficult to imagine doing anything else.

What is your desert island bottle?

I love Champagne, so right now I’d say Pierre Gerbais Reserve, as this is our house Champagne and I really love it!

What is your hangover cure?

Coffee, Berocca and if it’s really really bad, a shot of Fernet Branca.

If you were gonna create a cocktail for BarChick, what would you make?

A Jasmine Highball of course! 40ml Muyu Jasmine Verte in a highball with ice, topped up with Champagne.
