Decade of experience in top cocktail bars worldwide - Copenhagen to New York City

Hey, I am Arnas, your new mixologist/bartender and my cocktails are fire. I am a proud member of Dansk Bartender Laug with over 10 years of experience in F&B industry. After I turned 18, I fell in love with this craft and it has been a part of my identity ever since. Having won multiple contests worldwide, my reputation and skills speak for themselves. I understand this business from A to Z - having owned a private event company, I am able to solve problems accordingly and in a timely manner.

Successful projects

GetBartender.com & GetTheEvent.com

Launched 2013 / Location - Copenhagen & London

Co-founded a startup with a fellow bartender from Copenhagen. In 4 years time, GetBartender.com became a trusted event vendor for Royal Danish Family, Zendesk, Deloitte, AirBnB. International brand, HQ in Copenhagen and London.

Together with a supply chain management platform GetTheEvent.com I have managed to pull this business from a few hundred thousand DKK in yearly revenue to more than 5 million DKK since I took a part as Managing Partner. For the last year, I was a shareholder and relieved my managerial duties.

I sold the business in 2017 after I moved out of Copenhagen to start a life somewhere else.

Copenhagen Cocktail Academy

Positioned 2016 / Location - Copenhagen

During my tenure as an Operational Manager I had responsibility to make sure all events went as smoothly as it could possibly go. I studied a collected data set to recognise and predict certain patterns in event attendance and hospitality industry trends. 

I helped flesh out ideas, integrate value, a roadmap for the business, while also changing the workflow, growing the team, and helping the company thrive.
Notable achievements while at the company is having worked with Louis Vuitton, Danske Bank, Plesner Law.
