Group Bev­er­age Man­ager at Mr Miyagi’s

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CONSUME -

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.

Yas Ma­rina, Yas Is­land, Abu Dhabi. Sun, Mon and Wed 5pm to 1am, Tue 5pm to 3.30am, Thur and Fri noon to 3.30am, Sat noon to 1am. Tel: (050) 7970742. face­book. com/MrMiyag­isAuh
