Having collected the world´s most sought-after accolades and being associated with having rewritten the rulebook on hotel bars, Ago is undoubtedly one of the most prominent figures on the mixology scene globally.

Ago´s unique and fine approach to hospitality and mixology has established his consistent international acclaim along the timeless and unbeaten popularity of London´s Connaught Bar – which he heads since its 2008 opening.

Since moving to London from native Lake Como in 2003, Ago has marked the industry for introducing creative and gourmet cocktails with an elegant twist into the classic style service of The Connaught, triggering hotel bars to become approachable and exciting drinking destinations.

Before revolutionizing the bar scene with The Connaught Bar, Ago had already made a name for himself at bars such as Dusk in Battersea, Notting Hill´s Montgomery Place and working as an ambassador for Italian spirits brands.

Strong advocate of offering guests a highly personalised experience, along a perfect balance of taste tradition and innovation, Ago´s contribution to the industry over the past 10 years has been invaluable and prized with an endless list of personal awards which add to the recognitions attributed to the Connaught Bar under his drive such as the much-coveted Heering Legend of the List award at The World´s 50 Best Bars 2018 – prizing the Connaught for making the list consistently for nine years on the spin.

Taking inspiration from travels and personal encounters with people all over the world, Ago develops drinks with a story that go beyond flavour and immerse guests into engaging narratives.

Today, you can find Ago at The Connaught Bar, where guests arrive from every corner of the world to be served his famed Martinis. He continues to travel the globe, collaborating with top luxury brands, giving trainings, talks and collaborating with first-class personalities of the food and drink industry, always sharing his famous mantra «Straight up with style, and don’t forget the smile».
