Bad ass barman/Rock n Roll moment?
Drinking tequila with axl rose after his gig in my old place of work. He ended up cancelling half his gig at wembley the day after due to “sudden illness”. Not very popular with the rest of the crowd. Somehow this amused me.
Ever done it on a bar?
A gentleman never tells… So no, not on a bar.

Currently working on getting my bar and restaurant Dabbous up and running. Planned opening mid jan. Concept is stripped down fine dining (read: fine dining without the stuffiness that usually comes with it) on one floor and bad ass cocktail bar in the basement.
