Can you tell us a story, famous anecdote about this place that makes it unique?

The Capital Club's members are ONLY the decision makers from across the GCC (Gulf Coopération Council). All CEO's, Founders, MD's, Managing Partners or alike.

If this place was a song, what would it be?

"I did it my way" Frank Sinatra

How did you become so passionate about wines & spirits?

I fell in love with hospitality and then bartending and naturally became obsessed with wines and spirits

How and when did you first discover LOUIS XIII?

The film "Cocktail" was when I first encountered the brand, but my first bartending job in the UK was when I actually experienced it.

What would you say about LOUIS XIII to someone who has never tasted it?

I would not tell them anything about the taste, as they need to experience that for themselves, I would tell them about the history and exactly what has taken place to bring this decanter and cognac to life.

What is your biggest dream in life?

To own my own company within hospitality and run it from my villa on the Greek island of Rhodes.


Began bartending 20 years ago in Greece, then from being classically trained in the UK, worked up to GM of my first venue and since then have opened and ran every venue from fine dining, superclubs, cocktail lounges, celebrity hangouts to private members clubs across 4 countries.
