Classic Cocktails & Clothing: In Conversation With Joe Schofield
Time To Read: 6 Minutes
One autumnal afternoon, PWVC set off on the short journey from 1 Cottenham Lane to Norfolk Street in central Manchester, home to The Stock Exchange Hotel, and now to our good friend Mr Joe Schofield’s newest venture, Sterling.
After more than 18 months in the making, we are now set beneath the iconic Edwardian Grade II listed building’s grand entrance at The Stock Exchange, in what it is now an intimate, 1920’s inspired bar that used to be a Merchant Bank’s vault.
In between Joe’s busy schedule, (today’s agenda is prepping for launch, running multiple businesses, directing photoshoots and training the next of wave of world class bartenders), we sat down to discuss clothing and cocktails – a topic Joe has come to know a thing or two about in his 10 years in the trade.
