ABOUT SUMAIYAH EDWARDS
I am Sumaiyah (Sim) Edwards, Global Brand Ambassador for the World’s Most Awarded Gin, Beefeater! I spent most of my life in beautiful Cape Town and now live in London representing this awesome brand. I’ve been working in the wonderful world of hospitality since I was at the tender age of 18 years old. I’m also a personal trainer, fitness instructor, and foodie. I love to travel and meet incredible people and talk about all things gin and wellness.
If I am going back to South Africa I will find myself at Sin+Tax, a sexy little speakeasy with epic tunes, great staff, and bloody delicious cocktails. When in London, I’ll most likely teleport to either Happiness Forgets or Homeboy. Happiness Forgets because it has everything you want, great vibe, music, staff, ambience, and drinks. Homeboy because it feels like home, but better! Outside of that, Franks in Sao Paulo is brilliant and The Little Red Door is heaven on earth.
BEST PLACE FOR BAR-HOPPING
London for sure. I am lucky enough to visit many cities however there is something special about London. There is an amazing pulse and your options are limitless, there are dozens of fantastic bars to satisfy your mood or the occasion. From savouring a martini at Dukes, to pioneering innovation at Lyaness to late-night margaritas at El Camion, you are never bored!
