The Gore in Kensington has relaunched its historic rock and roll bar, with a new manager at the helm to drive business.

The hotel, which is part of the Starhotels portfolio and operated alongside The Franklin and The Pelham in London, has relaunched its Bar 190 with a new cocktail list that pays homage to its past dating back to 1892.

The Bar was first made famous when The Rolling Stones used it for the launch and photoshoot of their 1968 album, Beggar’s Banquet.

He has been appointed from the Park Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, where he had been assistant bar manager at the Hyde Bar for the last five years.

Prior to this, Santo was head sommelier at the hotel’s One O One restaurant. He has also worked at some of London’s top hotels and restaurants, including 5 Hertford Street, Babbo Restaurant, Buddha Bar and The Ritz Club.
