Ted Dako


Ted Dako, Denmark

Bar 25, Copenhagen

Ted was all set to be a snowboarder. He was working winter seasons in Val Thorens as a bartender to pay his rent. But he found he was having a lot of fun, so when he got back to Sweden he took a post behind the bar in a nightclub. After a year, Ted moved to Copenhagen and luckily met a girl who happened to be a local bar manager. She gave him a job despite his lack of experience at that point – clearly Ted won her over with his love of bartending and a little charm too! From then Ted worked on his cocktails and service, and his reward is the Global Final. Ted’s well-thought-out approach to each challenge should put him in good stead for South Africa.
