Bartending since 12 years, started in a small coffee bar in heart of Como (Italy).
Frequented 3F American Bartender School. After collaboration with them I moved to London in 2003. A small experience in Chelsea brought me to meet leading people in the industry.
Then a contact let me to move to Dusk and after a short while promoted head bartender.
Heading Dusk until 2006 when they give me in hand a small jewel, Montgomery Place.
For 2 and half years I was attending guest and bartender from all over the globe, that is the Bar. During those years we archived few awards: best bar, best night out, best UK bartender 2006.
In a bartender career you need a Hotel experience at very high level and feel as the personality you read about in historic Cocktail Book.
