Matt Winter was first in line to work in the family business, his grandfather's clothing company, before he decided to follow his own passion. With a discerning eye and a love for design, he started designing his own interior spaces, focusing on—you guessed it—bars. With spaces like Santa Monica's 41 Ocean and Sassafras on his resume, he's made a name for himself as one of top names in his field. In the spirit of Charles Tanqueray—the founder of his namesake gin who chose his passion for gin over a family tradition of the clergy—Matt's blazed his own path and taken the design world by storm.
