TORONTO, May 18, 2021 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine and Bartender Atlas are bringing a 24 Hour Bar into homes! Beginning at 12pm EST on Friday, May 28th, 24 bartenders from across the globe will work 1 hour shifts from their home or work bar. They will be making cocktails, answering questions and telling viewers about their cities and bars.
24 Hour Bar will stream live on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/bartenderatlas
The last 15 months have been devastating for the bar community with restaurant & bar closures and lockdowns taking place globally due to the pandemic. Everyone, no matter their city or country, has been negatively affected by it. Corby Spirit and Wine and Bartender Atlas wanted to create a virtual event to bring bartenders from across the world together, hiring them to do what they do best: making creative cocktails and engaging with the people. While we may not be allowed to visit these bartenders at their bars right now, this is a chance to bring that experience home to everyone.
24 Hour Bar features 24 bartenders from 12 countries, 11 time zones and 6 continents.
Below is the 24 Hour Bar schedule including all of the participating bartenders and their home cities. During the live stream, viewers can send drink requests, ask what to make with the spirits they have at home, or anything else that comes to mind. It's going to be fun!
