Cocktail master mixes magic at new wine bar

A CHANGE in career path has led Nick Partridge to discover his true talent.

The 25-year-old is a bartender at lightbox Espresso and Wine Bar on Goondoon St and is loving every minute of it.

Nick likes creating cocktails and experimenting with different flavours, challenging the community to ask for any beverage.

Lightbox opened at the end of August and Nick thinks it's good the town has another venue where people can wine and dine.

"We aim to be the best in Gladstone," he said.

"I've been bartending for a year and a half now. I used to be in construction, but I had a heart condition so I was let go."

The Gladstone local fits in outdoor activities when he can.

"I go to the gym and I like four wheel driving, skate boarding and surfing," he said.

"I like Gladstone because of my family and friends."
