Mike from the Escape Bars in London. About starting a bar, finding community, east and west London, creating a safe space and finding the balance between being creative and staying grounded.
In this seasons Finale I speak with Mike from the Escape Bars in London. The Escape bar in Stratford was the first place where I hosted my art classes with Makings and Musings and talking to Mike about how it all started was a lot of fun! Starting a bar is a dream for many of us and Mike has been able to make this a reality. Mike gives us some rare insights into the work behind the scenes of running a bar. There are lots of exciting and inclusive events going on in the Escape Bars in Stratford and Shepherd's Bush. Make sure to follow the bars on Instagram and facebook to hear about the latest gigs, quizzes, boardgames and art exhibitions. https://www.escapebars.uk/ https://www.facebook.com/EscapeBarsUK https://www.instagram.com/escapebarsuk/ If you want to leave a voice message for Mike or for myself or if you want to comment on something you have heard in the episode, you van leave a voice message here https://anchor.fm/makings-and-musings.
