New Zealand born Simon McGoram - aka The Booze Braggart - has worked his way from humble glassy, to award winning bartender, and from bartender to professional drinks writer and bar commentator.

The current Drinks Editor at Australia's leading bar trade title Australian Bartender, Simon is also a bit of a gun for hire. You can find him mixing drinks behind the bar Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at Gardel's Bar, or read his work on Sydney Morning Herald's Executive Style, and in print in the Time Out Sydney Bar Guide 2012 or the luxury lifestyle magazine Box.

Simon has also recently teamed up with Ms Darlinghurst from five star blog Eat Drink Play and The Secret Foodies to deliver an exciting new bar adventure- Sydney Bar Tours.
