Rosewood London has promoted Martin Siska to the role of director of bars across the luxury hotel.
Progressing from his position as bar manager at Scarfes Bar where he has been since 2016, Siska will now be responsible for the management of both Scarfes Bar and Mirror Room’s Champagne Bar, as well as acting as consultant for The Gin Bar at the hotel’s Holborn Dining Room and other cocktail events held at the hotel.
Since joining the hotel, Siska’s growth within his role has been illustrated through the development and launch of two cocktail menus as well as the construction of successful long-term partnerships and collaborations with brands.
He has also been instrumental in the organisation of guests shifts, pop ups and masterclasses in bars around the world.
This has provided exponential growth to the success of Scarfes Bar and the Bar has been nominated for a number of industry awards including Tales of Cocktails; Best 10 Hotel Bars in the World, Imbibe; Drinks List of the Year and Class Awards; Best Cocktail Menu.
Over the past six months, Siska has been working closely alongside newly appointed head bartender Yann Bouvignes and the team at Scarfes Bar to develop and create imaginative cocktails that will be showcased in a new cocktail menu to be launched in April 2019.
Originally from Slovakia, Siska first moved to London 12 years ago and discovered a passion for bartending whilst working at D&D’s Pont De La Tour Restaurant. He also boasts experience at the likes of Brown’s Hotel and the London outpost of Dry Martini.
