Tippling Club appoints head bartender

Singapore bar Tippling Club has named its new head bartender as Arathorn Grey, who will enhance and redesign the venue.

Grey previously worked at rooftop bar Loof

Grey previously held the positions of bartender and assistant bar manager at Tippling Club before being promoted to head bartender. Grey takes over the role from Andrew Loudon.

He said: “I am honoured and grateful to be appointed the head bartender role of Tippling Club. It’s truly a huge role to be in, and I’m so thankful for the support and trust Chef Ryan Clift and the rest of the team have for me.

“It’s a new chapter for Tippling Club, and I’m excited to keep on pushing onwards and upwards.”

Grey has also worked for The St Regis hotel in Singapore as a server, a bartender at members-only club Straits Clan, and as senior bartender at rooftop bar Loof. Grey is said to have first developed an interest in bartending while travelling in Europe in 2017.

The 28-year-old will work alongside owner-chef Ryan Clift, and given the responsibility of enhancing and redesigning Tippling’s bar.

Grey is known for adding ‘creative touches’ to classic cocktails, and plans to diversify palettes and work with exotic ingredients.

In 2018, the bar’s former head bartender Joe Schofield teamed up with Clift and the master distiller of Australia-based Old Young’s Distillery, James Young, to release Sons of Tippling Gin.

In 2017, Tippling Club launched the ‘world’s first’ edible cocktail menu – 12 gummy bears, each paired with a liquid cocktail,  themed around dreams and desires.

In news of other appointments in the bartending world, The American Bar at The Savoy in London recently hired Chelsie Bailey, general manager of Happiness Forgets, as its new head bartender.
