Akademi hosts Shah Dillon from 40 Thieves Club
For one night only, award-winning mixologist and entrepreneur Shah Dillon will be shaking up his distinctive brand of experimental cocktails behind the Akademi bar. Shah is the Founder and Owner of The Midnight Brigade PTE LTD, a Singapore-based company that owns and operates boutique bar concepts around South East Asia.
Having first discovered his love for mixology while working part-time at bars as a teenager, Shah went on to gain experience at some of the most highly regarded venues in Singapore, Shanghai and Sydney. Nowadays, Shah is a familiar face in the Asian bartending scene, with over twenty years of international experience under his belt and various accolades to his name, including the title of The Singapore National Cocktail Competition Champion 2010.
However, the real buzz he gets from bartending doesn’t come from picking up trophies, but from interacting with guests – sensing their satisfaction as they sip his cocktails, or feel awed by his forward-thinking beverage and venue concepts.
Shah likes to keep his cocktails real without the fluff and pretense, something that also translates to his personality when he is not behind the bar. When he’s not mixing up creative cocktails or consulting on bar matters, Shah can often be found carving around Bali’s skate parks on his board.
