Q. Favourite bar/club: Brsi, a tiny wine bar behind Alfred's on the Corner in Happy Valley. Its sexy decor reminds me of Mission Impossible. Also in the area is Green Spot, where old guys in town try to recapture their university days.

Q. What's your poison? Sex on the Beach [a cocktail] is my regular.
