Joey the smile behind the bar, happiest when the bar is at its busiest and he’s ‘flying out the cocktails’, whilst been a self confest grump at times, we can confirm this is nowhere to be seen when Joey is mixing, shaking and flaring cocktails. Originally form a little village on the Cavan/Longford border Joey moved to Sligo to undertake environmental engineering In IT Sligo before developing a career in mixology; finding a love for developing and creating cocktails. Joey’s Journey began when he took up part time bar work whilst
studying, from there he managed bars before receiving the opportunity to become a team member in the then new Blind Tiger Cocktail Bar where he found a love and flair of creating and developing unique cocktails becoming a strong team member involved in developing menus coupled with utilising his environmental background with the Blind Tiger holding a strong environmental focus. 


Josh is a mixologist with an introverted demeanor and sullen appearance. However, once cocktails are mixed or shaken you can see the smile appear on his face; it’s as if he was in complete control of everything around him. Josh is originally from England but moved to Mayo before studying at college there for cocktail mixing skills.
