WORLD CLASS COUNTRY WINNER 2017

Mike Kassabian, Lebanon

Place of work: Sapa

Mike grew up knowing the world of hospitality through the restaurant his father owned. His own journey began as a bar back in a club to support both his studies and family. He fell in love with bartending and when he graduated, didn’t choose to pursue a career in finance, instead making the decision to bartend full-time. Exceptionally motivated, Mike spends a lot of time researching and practising his craft. He dreams of owning his own spot and being an influence for upcoming young bartenders to look up to!
