The Rise of Craft Flair Bartending

Podcast cover

On this weeks show we’re looking at how the art of flair bartending is making a huge comeback behind premium bars and how you can be at the forefront of this trend. Over the past few years, while flair has still flourished in the competition scene with the moves getting consistently harder and more technical, seeing real world working flair to a good standard in the wild seems to have declined. Of course there are some brands, most notably in the UK TGI Friday’s which have always promoted the skill of their bartenders, and as I see it helped to...

Bartenders don’t know what drinks are good.

I went on a short rant about what I think is one of the biggest problems in the industry right now, even though its not as bad as it has been in the past. Some bartenders have such egos, that they won’t give guests the drinks they actually want. I genuinely believe that the reason a lot of AMAZING bars fail is because their menu is more tailored to winning awards and impressing other bartenders than they are to providing an experience that their guests care about. It is not for the bartender to decide what drinks are good or...

Back in my day… When I first started flair bartending the competitions to win were Legends of Bartending and Quest, both in the US and both incorporating showmanship and technical skills as well as the exhibition flair which is still ubiquitous today. Bartenders were forced to actually know the skills needed behind the bar and not just the working and exhibition flair moves in isolation from the real world of working bartenders. Vanilla Flair?
