Massimiliano Terrile
I started at the age of 15 running the floor in Portofino Hotel, where I spent most of my teenage years. Then I decided to move to Venice after a winter season spent in St. Moritz as Junior Sommelier in a Luxury hotel (Suvretta house). After a year at Bistrot in Venice, I caught a catch a chance to open my own bar in Sottomarina named XXL, 15m of working bar with 4 full station and DJ console. Back in Portofino few years later, I worked for Sartori in one of the first aperitif buffet bar in Italy, inspire by glamour and fashion. I then moved to London when I was 25, I've worked a places like like Giraffe and SoS before finally finding a family in Duck&Waffle where I moved from Bartender to Head Bartender to ABM in almost four years. Fresh on a new job, I'm now the General Bar Manager in Waldorf Hilton in Aldwych.
