Who is Mikey Enright?

Originally from the UK, Mike Enright (known as Mikey) started his hospitality career in 1990, running public houses in the North of England and later trained in London as a Cocktail Bartender, moving to Sydney in 1999.

During his time in Australia Mikey opened some of the most successful, award-winning Premium Restaurants & Cocktail Bars in Sydney Including The Loft, Zeta Bar, Merivale portfolio Bars Incl Ivy as ‘Group Bars Manager’.

In 2013 he went into partnership with Julian Train to create the Barrelhouse Group. They opened the ‘Barber Shop’ in Sydney, which gained global recognition. Among national awards, it also won ‘Gin Bar of the Year’ in 2016/17/18/19 and ‘Bar of the Year’ ALIA’s in 2018. In 2020 the Barber Shop was named ‘World’s Best Gin Bar’ by the UK.

Late 2017 Mikey and Julian opened ‘The Duke of Clarence’. A British tavern which is already gaining great recognition by Sydney’s locals and hospitality industry.

Mikey has consulted on prestigious bars across Asia and Australia. He has recently launched Enright’s Original Gin ‘scented’ grooming range and also developed a mixer range in the UK and Australia, named Artisan Drinks Co, in which he is a partner.

His personal achievements led him to be named ‘Time Out Legend Award’ in 2014, ‘7th Most Influential Bar Professional’ in 2015, three times winner of ‘Bar Manager of the Year’ by two bar publications and ‘Prestigious Outstanding Contribution Award’ 2017.

Mikey is a senior judge for the Australian Gin Awards and Chairman of the Australian Gin Cocktail Competition.
