Welcome to Just Shake or Stir!

Allow Me To Introduce Myself!

My name is Georgi Petrov, born in Sofia, Bulgaria. My bartender career starts back in 1995 in a small bar and dinner with live music. At this time I never thought I’d be doing it for all these years.

Forward a few years later, and I was a member of the Bulgarian Bar Association (BBA) competing and getting involved more deeply into the industry. During my bartender career in Bulgaria, I worked with many brands as consultant and train many bartenders. After establishing myself as one of the top bartenders in the country, I decided to open a cocktail bar with a few of my fellow bartenders. We had a great time, and life was beautiful, but I needed a change.

In 2006 I stopped everything and joined a Cruise Ship as a bartender to explore the world, meet new people and find a new adventure. Spending 6 years cruising was terrific. I made some great friends, visit some incredible places around the world and also meet my wife. In 2009 I moved officially to the UK, and in 2011 the cruising life came to its end.

After a few years on land, working random jobs and settling down with my wife and my two daughters, I am back to my roots, and to one thing I genuinely love. Creating cocktails, mixology and serve delicious drinks.

I am still working as a bartender and mixologist. Just Shake or Stir is my pride and a way to share my passion.
