Mr West Bar & Bottle shop is a multifaceted drinking space that was conceptualised in early 2016 when friends Caleb Baker (Greenhouse by Joost, Meatball & Wine bar, Custard and Co cider, Bluebonnet BBQ) and Josh Hodges (Momo, Cookie, Feral Brewing co, Little Andorra) realised they both dreamt of opening a venue and shared the same passion for all types of liquor.

Caleb & Josh have a wealth of knowledge, skill & knowhow in the hospitality industry with over 20 years of experience between them ranging from cocktail bar, restaurant & pub management to craft beer & cider sales. They have also done their fair share of travel, experiencing hospitality & booze at its finest across the globe.
