By Angela Green, Content Executive: Mama Shelter London Shoreditch appoints Bar Operations Manager.
Mama Shelter London Shoreditch has appointed Alessandro Mansueto as Bar Operations Manager overseeing the drinks operations for Mama’s bar, restaurant and ethereal Garden Bar.
Mansueto has over 10 years’ experience working for some of London’s most notable venues. Following various operational roles, his management career began running the bar for Tonteria Club at the Sloane Square Hotel. Key roles as Assistant General Manager at Clerkenwell & Social, moving on to the iconic mixology venue, Callooh Callay, Chelsea, led to his most recent position as Assistant General Manager at The Residency, Notting Hill.
During his time at The Residency, he reimaged the cocktail menu and introduced new creations that became top sellers within six months of the launch.
At Mama, he will enhance the popular drinks brand activations and pop-ups, bring his unique skills to revitalize seasonal cocktail menu changes as well as encourage and maintain a superior standard of service and product for guests. He will also be pivotal in the planning to launch the arrival of Mama’s new Lounge Bar in June.
Mansueto said of his appointment: “I’m thrilled to be coming on board at Mama Shelter London Shoreditch and to be able to work with the fantastic team here to create new concepts. East London has such a vibrant and eclectic mixology history and Mama is a true home away from home, so it will be great to make a big impact on our bar offering – particularly over the summer when the vibey venue really comes alive.”
Mama Shelter London Shoreditch General Manger, Robert Alam added by saying: “We have done some extensive work on our food offering with the arrival of Mattia, our Food and Beverage Director and James, our Executive Chef last Summer. As we continue to enhance the menu, drinks will be a key focus to compliment this and cement Mama as a destination venue as well as a local haunt for the neighbours.”
