Director of Mixology. The title oozes with the cool of a well-made Martini, and the man with the title- The Connaught’s Agostino Perrone- has shaken and stirred his way to earning it.

After all, The Connaught Bar is considered one of the best in the world, and it’s not just because its stunning looks and great drinks; there are other bars that can claim the same. What makes the Connaught Bar special is the attention to detail…

Michelin-starred canapés by executive chef Hélène Darroze and a glass of champagne serve as introduction, but don’t be distracted and indulge for too long because the experience after promises to be as an in-depth and experimental one, as you would expect from a multi award winning team.
