I am Cristiana Pirinu , I am 24 years old and I’m born in Bosa, a small village in North Sardinia. The passion for the bar started when I was young because big part of my family has always worked in the hospitality world. After I finished my studies at the hotel school the curiosity to learn new things grew and I decided to move to London. The beginning of my experience here wasn’t easy, I was 19 and I was in a big city away from my family but thanks to my dedication to my job everything that seemed impossible became my current daily routine.
My first work experience was in an Italian restaurant for one year until I had the occasion to start working at Aqua Kyoto and Nueva which gave me the chance to start working behind the bar. This was the place that gave me the opportunity to return to hotel life, to be precise at the American Bar at The Beaumont Hotel where I could work with people who trained me, taught me and saw good potential in my abilities. I am happy with all the places where I worked because every one of them taught me something and today I am proud to be able to work at the The Donovan bar, one of the best bar in the world , with the “Maestro “ Salvatore Calabrese and a young and lively team with a passion for the bar like me. After two years of work in the Donovan Bar I didn’t imagine I could have the opportunity to learn and work with so many beautiful people and to be able to meet many important people from the world of the industry.Thanks that, during the 2019 I had the chance to take part in the Amaro Montenegro competition, and winning the Uk phase give me more self confidence. I hope this is just the beginning of many other satisfactions.
