About Giorgio Bargiani
Today he covers the prestigious role of Head Mixologist at one of the world's best bars and with master Ago Perrone has made their signature Martini pour famous globally. However, Giorgio's passion for hospitality roots back to a very young age, starting as a family affair in his aunt's restaurant bar in Pisa, Italy, where he first cut his teeth.
Fascinated by the calibre of the cocktail offering and service of some of London's top hotel bars such as The American Bar, The Connaught and The Artesian, Giorgio decided to take on a new challenge and role in a luxury hotel in order to sharpen his knowledge and skill set. It was during his time at the Splendido Hotel in Portofino that he received the life changing call from The Connaught Bar - on 8th August 2014, as he still recalls. During his only day off, Giorgio flew to London and came back with a job offer.
The following month, Giorgio started as bar back and with an incredible drive and talent he gradually worked his way up to be promoted Head Mixologist in January 2019. Right arm of mixology titan Ago Per-rone, today Giorgio is a key member of The Connaught Bar team as well as an ambassador of world-class cocktail-making and hospitality. In December 2018, The Connaught and Ago designed an eponymous gin to mark the 10th anniversary of the iconic bar, and Giorgio played a key role in the development of this ultra premium, in-house crafted gin, consolidating even further his affiliation with Ago.
During Giorgio's time at The Connaught, the bar received the below accolades:
- Best Bar, GQ 2015
- Classiest Bar in London , Timeout 2016
- International Hotel Bar 2016 , Tales of the Cocktail
- World Best Cocktail Bar 2016, Tales of the Cocktails
- Mixology Bar Award 2017, Best European Cocktail Bar
- Imbibe UK 2016 , Best Classic Menu
- Heering Legend of the List 2018, World's 50 Best Bars - made the list for nine years on the spin

Determined to make each drinking experience highly memorable, Giorgio never misses a chance to inspire the people around him, be these bar guests, colleagues or attendees to the numerous masterclasses and events he hosts all over the world.
