“Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world”, The Langham London‘s Artesian comes up tops as one of the world’s best bars (being named the No.1 for four years in a row from 2012-2015). It has all the elements of such an accolade – a David Collins-designed interior, inspired by cabinets de curiosités, complete with purple crocodile leather and a pagoda bar; a prime location in the heart of London and one of its most spectacular hotels; and a killer cocktail menu full of creations with names like Death of The Hipster and Fast Money Comes At A Dangerous Price.
Gabor Fodor is the bar’s new blood a.k.a. head bartender, joining the award-winning team in November 2015. Here he discusses his new role, cocktails mistakes and how he pushes his team to greatness.
