Meet Thomas Colombo, chief Mambologist and cocktail expert. Born in a hotel in Lake Garda, Italy, Thomas was destined to be part of the hospitality industry from a young age, mixing his first drink behind the family bar aged nine.
Thomas has travelled the world with his steamer trunk full of Mambo tricks, mixing up cocktails in farflung places across the globe. He found a real passion for cocktails on his travels, discovering new ingredients and techniques, and even serving some famous faces along the way. Thomas delights in classic cocktails but isn’t afraid to invent surprising, quirky recipes, drawing inspiration from his worldwide jaunts with his steamer trunk mobile bar.
Thomas has worked his way around the world and up through the restaurant trade, and is now taking his skills out and about with Mambo Mobile Bars. Everything about Mambo shows Thomas’ skills and passion, from his unique mixology menus to his charismatic presence behind the bar. Thomas likes to reflect a bit of personality in his drinks, crafting them with quality ingredients as well as a bit of flair. It's all about mobile mixing that raises the bar in cocktails.

"The charming way in which Thomas prepared our cocktails in the most elegantly beautiful champagne saucers, just elevated our guests back to a golden time of old style glamour. Our Gin, Apple and Elderflower cocktails were just delightful and we couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful, professional and creative individual to prepare and serve our guests. Xxx thank you xx"

He arrived when he said he would, dressed for the part, with an AMAZING bar. My friend was blown away by the whole event. I asked her if she'd had a good night - she replied 'no, it wasn't good . . . it was FANTASTIC!' We have already booked Thomas for the next 40th (or we will when we can arrange a date!)
