Bartender's Weekend is back!

Bartender's Weekend was created in an effort to promote the "SPIRIT OF HOSPITALITY" that defines our industry.

By building a platform that focuses on community, it is our ultimate goal to bring all aspects of the drinks industry together and place them on an equal footing, while encouraging participants to interact in a positive and professional manner.

Making a Difference

In 2017, we made a decision that charity was going to be a major component of Bartender’s Weekend, and we are happy to announce that this year we will continue to focus on the betterment of the service and hospitality industry.

By partnering with nationally recognized 501(c)3 charities we are able to continue raising both money and awareness for amazing organizations that provide resources to support our industry, as well as the community.
