Philippa Guy – senior bartender at The Savoy’s American Bar, London

English bartender Philippa Guy made waves in the industry when she was promoted to senior bartender at The Savoy’s American Bar in 2017, making her the first woman in the role for 100 years.

Guy honed her bartending skills initially in the Leeds bar scene, eventually becoming the bar manager at Oporto, a bar industry institution.

A chance meeting with Declan McGurk, bar manager at the American Bar at The Savoy, led her to join the team in 2015. She then swiftly moved up the ranks to senior bartender.
