Thanks for visiting us at The Irish Shakes! Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
Born in Galway, Ireland, I’ve been living on The Gold Coast for the last 4 years and I have fallen in love with it. The lifestyle, the people and of course the growing restaurant and bar scene.
I had my first experience of how events should be thrown at the tender age of 16 in East Hampton, New York, working for my uncles catering company. There, we catered for some of the wealthiest clientele in the U.S and I learned a thing or two about what really makes an Engagement Party, Wedding, Birthday or just a backyard cocktail party exceptional.
Since then, I have worked mainly in cocktail bars around the world learning the trade from the best in the business. From the classics to the contemporary, I have made them all, and something I’ve come to understand is that cocktails are a very personal affair; no two peoples tastes are the same.
That being said, at the Irish shakes we want to personalise your night around you and your guests. We will provide delicious drinks along with amazing service and make sure everyone there will remember your event.
In 2014 Terry began managing the bar at Bonita Bonita, in Mermaid Beach. While there they were awarded ‘The Best cocktails on the Gold Coast’
Shortly after he was featured in the Gold coast bulletins ‘The Coasts Top Ten Bartenders’
