Lukas S. Jehlicka started his career at the young age of 14 in hospitality school in Prague, Czech Republic. Upon completion of his studies he immediately began working with Gordon Ramsay to perfect his craft. He then moved to London where he worked at multiple, high-end dining outlets such as, China Tang at The Dorchester, Bassoon Bar at The Corinthia, Supper Club and at the prestigious Royal Automotive Club, where he became known for his extraordinary talent and unique cocktails. During his stay in the UK he took part in several competitions which gave him international recognition and led him to develop many global bar concepts with The Crystal Group and Entourage Group, as lead Consultant Bar Manager – from Beirut to Amsterdam to Casablanca before settling in Dubai.
Lukas has hit the ground running at PLAY, revamping the entire beverage menu and mixology concepts to curate cocktails rooted in handmade recipes, with elaborate garnishes and customized elements to ensure that guests have a truly bespoke experience as they sip on one of his creations.
