Geoff Robinson fell into bartending as a means of paying his university tuition. He fell harder than he expected, and has remained locked into the industry ever since. After helping to open an award-winning cocktail bar in his native Vancouver, he ventured out to do some travelling. He ended up in London, working at ECC Chinatown. Following his stint there, he took up the bar manager position at Happiness Forgets in Hoxton Square, a small basement cocktail bar that has since been accorded some acclaim, including being named 12th best bar in the world by Drinks International.
