Arun Mirchandani

Arun’s hospitality career includes building bar businesses for the Sheraton, Hyatt and Intercontinental groups in India, Director of Operations for the New York Hospitality Group in the USA (in which role he opened bars in the Czech Republic), Beverage Director at the New York Helmsley and as shareholder/GM of the Fatty Crab group.

In 2013, he set up his own project in New York:  The Drunken Munkey,  a colonial-Indian themed cocktail bar and restaurant which is a tribute to the cafés, bistros and supper clubs of old Bombay. In 2015, his team added a sister bar and restaurant, also in Manhattan:  The Royal Munkey.  

Arun has a keen understanding of the business demographics and potential, while personally directing all day-to-day operations, management and service for both operations. Social media is a key part of his brand building activity, and this includes a unique perspective on brand listening.
