Watch out! Carl Tjong-a-Tjoe of Vavoom on Grote Markt says there’s a Rum Revolution on the way!

Describe your venue in one sentence?

A Rockin’ & Rollin’, no nonsense, rum forward, high volume Tiki cocktail bar that’s here to stay.

How did you come to work in the bar industry?

I got into the business as a chef cooking my way up from kitchen to kitchen, but always looking at and admiring the work bartenders do... how they move behind a bar whilst entertaining guests. When Hugo Schneider (Vavoom’s founder) gave me the opportunity to get some shifts in the Vavoom! I ran with it and never looked back.
