Uncharted‘s Tom Holland is a man of many talents. Those talents include gymnastics, stunt work, and of course dancing.

With those talents, he was able to land his iconic role as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of Spider-Man. With Holland being a global superstar, it’s not a surprise that the young star is getting high praise for his talents – or that he landed the role of iconic character Nathan.


To add to that list of talents, we know now Tom Holland possesses the additional skill of bartending. As we saw in the recent film trailer for Uncharted, Holland’s Nathan Drake was bartending at a local bar in New York City. We see Drake meeting his mentor Sully, played by Mark Wahlberg, and serving him a cocktail. In a recent interview with GQ, Holland talked about his preparation for that scene as a bartender.

Tom Holland Takes On Bartending

During Holland’s interview, the Uncharted star shared how he spent time working at a luxury hotel bar in London.

The bar was called the Chiltern Firehouse and Holland would spend his time there to prepare for a scene in Uncharted. The scene is in which his character Nathan Drake works as a bartender. Holland acknowledged that working alongside with hotel staff help taught himself on how to mix cocktails and other forms of alcohol. That’s including how to perform trick pours and add some nice flair to his bartending skills he acquired.

Another fun fact is that Chiltern Firehouse has a high reputation for catering high profile people such as celebrities, musicians, and politicians. The hotel bar is also notorious for its rigorous screening process required for bookings. Hopefully we can see Holland’s skills as a bartender go full display in the upcoming film.
