And rumour has it they’ll probably be found hiding out at 69 Colebrooke Row on Wednesday 1st of June, where it’s suspected, that they’ll be gathering to aid the celebrations during the bar with no name’s second birthday bash. An invitation only event apparently.
The bar with no name at 69 Colebrooke Row and Drink Factory are very pleased to offer the unique opportunity of a Stage position within the bar and the lab.
The positions will be open to both bartenders and students of Cocktail and Food Science, and will offer periods of time to work alongside Tony C and the award winning team of 69 Colebrooke Row aiding and shadowing the research and development- giving an exclusive insight into this unique setting.
Apprentices will not only be trained on the happenings and equipment within the lab, they will also get the opportunity to see these realized within the bar environment.
This will provide a rare view of the unique process of concept formation, development and implication of ideas.
The position will provide a rare opportunity to learn from leaders in the field of cocktail science, be involved within pioneering projects, and will help the understudies develop a unique set of skills and gain invaluable experience.
Apprenticeship duration will last one to two weeks.

Tuesday saw the regional heats for West London and Islington held at the bar with no name. Teams representing each bar presented two drinks, one simple and universal, the other as creative as desired. As to be expected, a variety of interesting drinks evolved, ranging from sweet to savoury, hot to cold and liquid to solid. In the end, the standard was so high, 5 went through- including Ryan and Marcis Dzelz8nis representing 69 Colebrooke Row. Details of the Grand Final are due to follow, but rumours suggest the focus will be on creativity so it is likely the lab equipment will be at the fore again…
As the busy season creeps up on us, the Colebrooke crew head to Bistrot Bruno Loubet at the Zetter Hotel for a team lunch to discuss the season at hand.
Apart from the amazing food and service, the staff were also more than accepting of our tom-foolery. See photographic evidence below:
Competition success is following the 69 staff, with Ryan winning regional finals in both the N0.3 Gin and 209 Gin competitions to make it through to the National finals of each over the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, Stu took top honours at the Pernod Ricard competition- Free Pour- fighting off high standards from competitors around the country to place first and win himself a trip to Cuba and the title of Lord of the Free Pour.
