Leeds City Magazine caught up with Jonny Walker who is the Assistant Bar Manager at Malmaison Leeds, to find out a little inside information about the man himself and his bartending journey.
It all started in Kos, Greece where Jonny attended the European Bartender School – Jonny was made Head Bar Tender of the leading cocktail bar on the island. However, Kos wasn’t enough for this Leeds lad so he headed to the capital (The Big Smoke!) to feed his passion for the industry and to develop his knowledge of delivering the highest quality of service whilst creating his own unique cocktails. After a months intense training to further progress his industry skills he then moved back up to Leeds and worked in various restaurants and bars.
Jonny’s Mal career started 3 years ago as a bartender at Chez Mal and he’s worked to put his own stamp on the hotels beverage operation since then! He’s now running a team of 6 and can be found creating bespoke drinks for any occasion. Malmaison’s popup bar is available to travel around the city and if you’re lucky, Jonny will be behind it!
