Gareth Howells

Forrest Point
Beverage Director
Bushwick, Brooklyn
Gareth was raised in Guildford, Surrey (United Kingdom) and has been involved in the Industry for over 20 years. Starting from humble beginnings washing dishes at his local country pub and has held numerous positions throughout both the back and front of house. Gareth started bartending at the age of 18 and has been ever since, in one form or another.

Gareth is currently running the beverage programme at Forrest Point, Bushwick, Brooklyn where he has been found since their opening in Sept 2014. One of the cornerstones of the programme is their work with Milk Punch and they were lucky enough to be invited to make their 'Margot McGowan's' Milk Punch for the 500+ attendees at the NYC Jameson Bartenders Ball 2015.

When not slinging drinks and filtering Milk Punch in Bushwick or working in NYC's historic Meatpacking district on the weekends, he can often be found walking his ever growing pack of dogs with his beautiful wife around the streets of Brooklyn.
