London Bartenders Association, hospitality, food and drink

What is The LBA?
Founded by bartender Drew Mallins on 2nd January 2010, The LBA is one of the most active and populated social media groups and communities for the bar and drinks industry in the U.K. There are over 32,000 members to date and growing. The pillars of The LBA revolve around networking, education and resources.

It's also a safe space where members can ask the community for help or message me directly. Mental health support and challenges with employment are common areas of grievances experienced by The LBA members who often are unsure where to turn for help.


Alongside the LBA, Drew also runs a consultancy that specialises in nurturing people skills, creative concept development, and efficient business strategies for the hospitality, food and drinks industry sectors: Kwek Consulting
