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.

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.
