Jason Hannon lives in Hounslow's Jolly Waggoner pub and likes what he does for a living.
"I like being a boss," he said. "I like working with people."
The 33-year-old is the manager of the Bath Road pub, which underwent a make-over 18 months ago.
He said the redecoration added a warm terracotta colour to the walls and the place has been refurbished inside and out.
Mr Hannon has been there for nearly three years and manages a staff of eight.
The Jolly Waggoner stages regular weekly events for its customers, who are aged from 18 to over 80.
There are Sunday pool competitions, football on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and a DJ on Friday and Saturdays.
Mr Hannon said his favourite night is Saturday, adding: "It's the less rowdy of the nights."
And while enjoying his favourite Fosters lager is a perk of managing a pub, Mr Hannon said the overall atmosphere is what keep him at the Jolly Waggoner.
"It's enjoyable and fun," he said.
