ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Having grown up in the tourist mecca of Byron Bay on the East Coast of Australia, Rob quickly developed a love for the hospitality industry. Eighteen years of bartending in cocktail and whiskey bars across the globe, from Australia to Canada and from England to Ireland, Rob now proudly calls Ireland home.
Rob has opened and run some of Ireland’s most celebrated cocktail bars, and he's always had a passion for Irish Whiskey, in particular. An admirer and collaborator of Teeling Whiskey from its inception, Rob jumped at the opportunity to represent the brand globally, spreading the good news of the revival of Dublin whiskey to the four corners of the world.
ABOUT THE VENUE
Built in 1916 and originally housing a general store and Turkish bathhouse, Casey’s Irish Pub opened in 1969 and was acquired by NatFAB Board member Cedd Moses’ 213 Hospitality group in 2007. The underground pub, set in one of Central Downtown Los Angeles’s few single-story buildings, serves a variety of purposes, acting as a restaurant by day and a casual drinking hole at night.
The full bar, highlighting different varieties of whiskey, is accompanied by a food menu offering both traditional Irish dishes as well as sports-bar staples such as wings, burgers, and sandwiches. The 10,000-square-foot space is surrounded by photos of athletes and features an outdoor patio, a dart room, billiards, ping-pong, multiple TVs, and several reception rooms for private parties. In addition, its performance stage offers live entertainment, including musical performances, comedy routines, and trivia nights.
