Bottoms Up ?


Creating a new, exciting beverage offer takes pints of flair, a dash of class and a garnish of swag. So we have brought in someone with extensive experience of all things drink, Danilo Tersigni.

Danilo has it all, as the co-founder of VII Hills Italian Dry Gin, and a top hospitality bar consultant, he’s the expert we have brought in to advise us on the direction of the bar, the selection of drinks, and making our service the best it can be. He is working closely with our fabulous team on making and delivering the perfect cocktail, lovingly devising a new selection of spirits to make us stand out from the rest.

From 14 in his native Italian home of Sora working at various bars as a dishwasher, working his way through the ranks, before moving to Rome in 2008 where he joined Rhome Restaurant and Club as Head Bartender. His bartending career took him across the globe from Sardinia and Venice to Australia, finally settling in London in 2011.

On his arrival in London, Danilo joined dynamic hospitality company Inception Group, kicking off his UK career at Battersea’s Bunga Bunga. By 2013, Danilo had climbed the ranks to General Manager of Mr Fogg’s Residence in Mayfair. Under his management, Mr Fogg’s Residence was recognised as Best Bar of the Year at the Food & Travel Reader Awards 2014, one of the leading bars in the capital by Time Out in 2017 and 72nd Best Bar in the World, amongst other accolades.

Between 2016 and 2017, Danilo worked on the launch of Bōkan by Accor Hotels, the sleek sky-high restaurant, bar and terrace in Canary Wharf, as Opening Bars Operation Manager. In this wide-ranging role, he was responsible for overseeing all drink menus, entertainment and events, staff training, sales strategy and brand partnerships.

Danilo then returned at Inception Group as Opening General Manager looking after Mr Fogg’s brand sites and new opening.

VII Hills Italian Dry Gin has won a number of awards including a gold medal in the Super Premium category at The Gin Masters 2018 and a gold medal at the London Spirits Competition, which recognises brands from all over the world.

The new food and drink offers are being soft tested from mid -June, ready for the opening of the Roof Garden in August (which will blow your mind!) and the opening of the Penthouses in August.
