I sit down with James Trevaskis, of my local 11 Cadogan Gardens - an intimate hotel that is the toast of Chelsea. Truffle Martinis, homemade Eau de Vie, anything is possible when James Trevaskis is behind the bar, His ingenuity is what brings them into 11 Cadogan Gardens - find out how he got here and the thought process behind the drinks he creates.


Hello everyone - Don't get confused! Before there was Lush Life, there was Best Sips Worldwide, I rebranded after the first season. Although I reference Best Sips – it’s Lush Life through and through – the same great guests, the same music, and the same me! 


James began life as a sommelier, but then made the switch to mixologist. He can’t help bring his oenophilic knowledge to his cocktail making and that’s what makes this bar unmissable.

My first Truffle Martini was an extremely enjoyable experience, I must say. If you are after the daring or the classic, you will leave wishing 11 Cadogan Gardens were your local too.

Always remember the wise words of Oscar Wilde, “All things in moderation, including moderation,” and always drink responsibly!
