Growing up on an olive and almond farm in Andalusia, Antonio has always had an interest in food. After finishing hospitality school in Spain, he came to London with the intention of staying for a year — 14 years later, he’s still enjoying everything that this city has to offer. Toni's passion for food and wine developed while working in various restaurants and led to another degree, this time in hospitality management. He has worked for the likes of Michelin-starred chef Bruno Loubet and the acclaimed St. John restaurant, as well as running private events that have ranged from high-profile weddings to the Polo world championships to events for galleries like Saatchi and the White Cube. Before joining us at Mimo London, Toni managed the operations of a 250-capacity restaurant and bar in a multi-arts space in Hackney, where he combined his passion for food and wine with his love of music (he’s been a DJ and music promoter for over 10 years).
