backbar in Bar Fight Club!

In New Orleans every year there is a conference that puts all other conferences to shame. It’s called Tales of the Cocktail and it brings together bartenders and enthusiasts from all over the world to enjoy everything cocktail. Seminars, tastings, competitions and parties!

One of the biggest events of the week long extravaganza is called the Bar Fight Club. On Friday night six of the best cocktail bars in the country set up shop in one venue and throw down. They are trying to recreate their unique and amazing bar program in a new space. This year backbar is representing Boston in this amazingly fun competition. Wish us luck! (And if you’re down there that night, plan on coming and supporting us!)
