Corinthia - A lovely hotel bar with great drinks and really attentive staff The Connaught Bar – Ago is a wonderful guy, and all of the drinks are creative and balanced. Filthy MacNasty’s – It’s my local pub. What can I say? I’m a Londoner, we love our locals.
The Varnish – I love the staff, and they do really great classic cocktails. They really opened things up in Los Angeles in a way that hadn’t been done before. Booker and Dax – Dave Arnold is an evil genius and Booker and Dax is his brainchild. Need I say more? Dry Martini – It’s like stepping back in time when you enter into this bar in Barcelona. The martinis are excellent and if you are lucky enough to get served the radishes with butter you will be in heaven.
Guillome, one of my bartenders at 69 Colebrooke is amazing. Fast, classy, and with an amazing French accent. It’s a killer combination.
I get to be creative every day.
Bar Le Coq, our new bar opening in Paris this October.
Maybe its just residual Olympic fever, but I seem to remember wanting to be a swimmer.
Johnny Depp, wait- does everyone say that?
Rambeau, the poet. But I would trade him a poem for a drink. I would also be interested to see if a few cocktails could make him a little less melancholy.
Carbonating cocktails. Please refer to above mentioned evil genius Dave Arnold.
Wow, I don’t know. Cry? Just get on with it? I would certainly have a few drinks.
Dom Perignon 1996, and lots of it.
