founded by Drew Mallins


"My speciality and passion is people. I have spent over a decade working in hospitality and my goal is to help those in need whether it's career or business advice, mental health support or finding the right resources to achieve success.

2020 has given me time to re-evaluate what's most valuable to the industry I love and I have teamed up with likeminded individuals and organisations to help achieve those goals.

I specialise in nurturing small businesses to help them succeed by offering transparent advice, access to my substantial network, and listening to their needs.

My hospitality and drinks industry career spans over fourteen years in numerous countries ranging from high volume cocktail bars, members clubs and luxury brands. I am the founder of The London Bartenders' Association (The LBA), a bartender social network of 32,000 members.

Career highlights include running the infamous LAB bar and being awarded bar manager of the year in 2016 whilst managing the bars for three Hakkasan restaurants in the Middle East. I am also a qualified WSET spirits educator.

I am driving conversations and proactive change for better practices in day-to-day hospitality starting with recruitment. Follow The LBA's Instagram for more information: or join the The LBA group and be part of the positive change: The LBA Group
