“I am delighted to be joining the Lowry Hotel team at such an exciting time,” said Stuart (pictured) who has already launched a series of Christmas cocktails using organic herbs grown in the hotel’s terrace herb garden.
“During my career, I have had the opportunity work in dynamic restaurants and bars and always take great pride to meet any high expectations of the business and of course the customer.
“I am looking forward to maintaining the impeccable level of service whilst managing The River Bar.
“I’m excited to start experimenting with flavours and showing my personality during the festive season. Ingredients from our own herb garden on the Lowry Hotel terrace adds a personal touch to the cocktails as well as paving the way for sustainable cocktail drinking.”
