Group Beverage Manager at Mr Miyagi’s
What do I love about being a bartender? I enjoy interacting with guests and creating cocktails. It’s great seeing guests’ reactions to cocktails I have created.
Which celebrity would you love most to serve in your bar? Paul Rudd – the actor from Anchorman, Clueless and Ant Man. I love him, man.
The atmosphere at Mr Miyagi’s is absolutely mental. It’s a crazy but very fun place to be with loads going on. It allows people the opportunity to really let loose and have a really fun time.
The Cosmopolitan is the most overrated cocktail in the world. It’s only famous because it was the drink of choice on Sex and the City.
The most underrated drink out there? I’d say the Mai Tai. It’s a great cocktail, but I think it’s got lost in translation because of the tiki movement.
In my free time I love watching Spurs play. I also enjoy playing golf and listening to music.
My favourite area of Abu Dhabi? It has to be Yas Island of course! After all, there’s a Mr Miyagi’s there now. I also love the Corniche. It’s really beautiful there and was the first area in Abu Dhabi to have a restaurant or bar.
