You’ve probably noticed by now that we have recently blogged about Bar10 and The London Cocktail Summit. Well day one of the two-day event is over and I’ve definitely got a few thoughts about it.
This is the first year in which Bar10 has taken the decision to charge, which as the organisers have stated, was a move to try to put off the blaggers who have previously treated the show as little more than an excuse to get drunk. To my mind they definitely went some way towards achieving this goal. Unfortunately the flip side of that coin is that it seems to have put off a lot of the bartenders and bar managers too as attendance felt lower than previous years. That being said it was good to see a crowd of ‘the right’ people at the show.
