Aaron Wall & Ciarán Smith
It’s not the fact that each year Homeboy gets awarded and nominated major prizes that makes it so good. It’s the two Irish hospo-veterans Aaron and Ciarán and their love for the detail which makes their first own bar so unique. Having worked across some incredible venues throughout their career; spanning London, Dublin and NYC. Homeboy is the product of their dedication and mission: bringing modern Irish hospitality to one of the hottest neighbourhoods in London and the world.
ORA: Tell us about yourselves in a couple of lines, who you are, how ye met and what brought you together.
CIARÀN: My name is Ciarán Smith and I am the Co-Founder of Homeboy Bar. I’m a very driven and motivated person. Aaron and myself met years ago in Ireland and we always stayed in touch when I was living and working abroad. What brought us together was that I moved to London and we became housemates and the rest is history as they say.
AARON: My name is Aaron Wall, I’ve worked in pretty much every facet of the industry and have a love for hospitality in its truest form. Ciaran and I know each other from back in Dublin and always had the same view of hospitality which is: it’s all about how special you make your guest feel not how you “act”.
