BARTENDER, MIXOLOGIST, TRAINER – JOHANNESBURG

FULL NAME
Zack F Simbini

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE GROWING UP?
Growing up I wanted to be a civil engineer, I went on to study civil engineering at CJC by paying for my own studies I needed a job that defined me.

WHAT ARE YOU NOW?
Currently working at thirst as a bartender/mixologist and trainer.

TELL US YOUR STORY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?

First job I got was to make a quick buck. I worked as a bar back for two weeks then I got promoted to be a bartender. I looked up to my manager by then he was a God behind the bar.

I learnt from him by wishing to be like him, took what I learnt from him and made it my own.

Went on searching for ways to better my skills behind the bar by learning from all great bartenders in the world.

At THIRST I better my skills even more by working with so many different people with different skills.
