I’m Russell Burgess and I’m currently working at Loves At – an in-real-life and online bar, not only serving Kentish Town’s cocktail needs but also supplying cocktails nationally, via our online shop. I also run an events and consultancy company called Wet & Dry.
How resistant and adaptable the industry is – the ability of my peers to shine in such a difficult time has been nothing less than astonishing.
The camaraderie. And supporting each other in times of great strife, such as now!

Standing chatting to Bill Clinton at Elton John’s house. I know that isn't really rock ’n’ roll as such, it’s just major name-dropping… but it was mad surreal.
I’d like to say something wild, but in reality, I’m home with the kids, teaching my eldest to shake cocktails – the gift that keeps on giving.
I can’t say here…
Kalimotxo. If you know, you know.
Househusband. It’s actually my dream.

In today’s society, I’d love to say something really healthy and positive but, honestly, more booze.
