|Introducing Koop Kooper|
Please pour yourself a drink and make yourself comfortable for your introduction to the silken-voiced Mr. Koop Kooper…
This swank gentleman is the host of “The Cocktail Nation,” a lounge and exotica podcast out of the Sydney Penthouse. Each week Kooper talks to the movers and shakers of the lounge and tiki scenes and plays the very best in swingin’ tunes, and we are lucky enough to have him bestow his wit & wisdom upon us at Retrospectmag.com.
He is a DJ, writer and voiceover artist, known around Sydney town as a hepster always on the lookout for some crazy music. He mostly listens to lounge and exotica and loves the new stuff coming out of that vibrant scene.
Kooper has been an avid collector of late-fifties and early-sixties furniture for over fifteen years and has some truly amazing pieces. Naturally, this swinger digs clothing, and he firmly believes that a well-dressed man should be a well-dressed man in vintage threads at all times, not just weekends.
This man can cut a rug when required but, this swingin’ animal can usually be found propping up the bar—his diet includes the famed blue martini and most finger foods. Working in the media as he does, Koop is often pictured at A-list events and is likely to turn up at the opening of a letter.
Must be why the ladies like him: he’s manly, but well-dressed—and boy, can he pack a punch!
