“I have always been fascinated by Asia. I also love Bangkok’s vibrance and richness in culture, so when Vesper owners Choti & Debby reached me for an opportunity to lead their brainchild, I accepted the offer without hesitation. I am extremely excited to be part of this already-strong Vesper team and look forward to meeting all the friends around Asia. I am currently working on a series of new cocktails which will be launched soon, so please stay tuned and see you at the Bar!”
