Originally from Bagnols-sur-Cèze, a city between Avignon and Nîmes in the south of France, it didn’t take Romain Krot long to embark on a globe-trotting adventure to pursuit his dream of becoming a world-renowned mixologist. 

His first stop happened to be in London’s much-celebrated luxury hotel, The Ritz, before diving down south to Australia, to work at Black Pearl – a bar which Romain considers the home of his idols - where he mastered most of the skills he’s now managed to fine-tune to perfection.

Returning to his homeland, Romain carried out stints at both Michael Mas’ Experimental Cocktail Club and managed the speakeasy, Little Red Door - both in Paris - before taking up his current position at the ultra-chic La Conserverie Bar, a former workshop best-known for its mismatched sofas, unusual décor and, of course, Romain’s delicious creations. 

Sound good? It gets even better. We’ve managed to get our hands on a few of Romain’s most coveted cocktail recipes, featured below, exclusively for FOUR readers. Welcome on in, weekend!
