Orri Vilhjálmsson

Bar Manager

An Iceland native, Orri entered in the hospitality industry when he was just 16 and immediately fell in love with creating memorable moments for people. At 18, he got behind the bar and worked his way up the career ladder, inspired by bartending legends like Jim Meehan and fascinated by local ingredients and unusual flavours.

Orri joined Bar 44 as Bar Manager in July 2022.

Interesting facts - Orri was the global finalist in the Diageo Reserve World Class competition in 2018 and he loves sharing his passion about sustainable bartending to people.
