Ep. 47 Chau Tran (Burrow Bar - Cash Only Diner)
My guest today has created a speakeasy bar hidden away on Clarence street that provides this getaway place with a cosy ambience, fun vibes and a longing for more once you leave. Packed with stories, Chau shares her experiences in hospitality through the many pop ups she’s done, competitions she’s won and collaborations she’s pulled together.
