Lûmé’s Orlando Marzo named the Diageo World Class™ 2018 Australian Bartender of the Year

Lûmé’s Orlando Marzo named the Diageo World Class™ 2018 Australian Bartender of the Year

Orlando is Bar Manager of Melbourne’s eccentric fine-diner Lûmé (Gault & Millau Restaurant of the Year 2016; Australian Chef of the Year 2017). Before joining the Lûmé team, Italian-born Orlando was making a name for himself across the globe in the professional bar scene (his impressive CV includes world-renowned venues such as London’s Milk and Honey, The Player and Eau-de-Vie). But it was Orlando’s unique style and skill that initially drew the attention of Lûmé—where he creates beverages to match the restaurant’s multidisciplinary, avant garde approach.
