Favourite bar in the world | Oh, man. I haven’t travelled to a whole lot of bars, but I did love the Multnomah Whiskey Library and Pepe Le Moko in Portland, OR. I’m also a sucker for a good dive bar with a sense of nostalgia. To that end, I would say BJ’s in Fredonia, NY and Arlene’s Grocery in NYC.
Best known for | My killer dance moves.
Best story from behind the wood | My now long-term boyfriend was sitting at the bar talking to his friend about me (we weren’t together at the time), saying how good I was at making drinks. At the exact moment he said that, My tins broke and I was covered in booze.
