James Abbott - The Original Mix 'N' Twist Bartender

James Abbott

Following a move to Leeds for university James very quickly developed a keen interest in bartending.

He soon became a passionate cocktail bartender who loved entertaining town goers with fantastic cocktails and slightly showing off with his flair skills (the art of bottle and bar equipment juggling).

After working in some of Leeds leading cocktail bars for several years he saw people were interested in enjoying cocktails and professional bar service not just in the city centre but anywhere.



So then moving to work as an event bartender (the most fun and rewarding work for a bartender) he saw that private parties and corporate functions would benefit from a premium cocktail entertainment service….and he could offer that!

So he set out to provide a great cocktail entertainment service for parties and events no matter where they may be and Mix ‘n’ Twist Bartending was born.

Bringing to events and parties the art of Mixology and the fun of bartending to produce great cocktails and a spectacular night.
