If your looking for a new friend where do you go?
Online maybe, or perhaps the gym, or what about church even? But according to those in the know, your best friend could be your bar tender.
That was just one of the many qualities judges were looking for last night when they picked Cayman’s best bar tender.
Organised by international drink producers, Diageo the competition for the top spot was fought out Wednesday (15 June) at the Marriott Hotel.
And one thing is for sure, today’s bartenders are a lot more than just the people who bring you drinks.
“He’s a guy who entertains you, who welcomes you in the bar who makes you feel you are at home,” said Arturo Alexander Savage, Brand Ambassador for Diageo.
“And beside that, gives you a great drinks which is served with technique with emotion, with almost a dance behind the bar. And that makes you feel very good and of course, as you said, like a rock star. Maybe he could be your friend one day, but an entertainer, definitely.”
Winner of the competition was Laurie Eaton who works at The Bistro.
He’ll now represent Cayman at the world finals in Miami later on in the year.
