May 15th, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
The Profit Center Bartender, Bar Institute Econo: Cleveland
Market Garden Brewery, ticketed event, $5 at the door

As bartenders, we are guest facing in all that we do. The bar is our stage where we stir and shake drinks with great alacrity, embrace our guests in warm hospitality, and share our love of life behind the stick. But it is a business, and we are employed to ensure profitability. This seminar is designed to take the bartender from behind the bar to the back office where we will explore how everything they do, from their daily mis en place to their hand skills to their love of hospitality, affects the bottom line of the business.

Bar Institute is headed to Cleveland for a one day Econo session on May 15th. We will be offering 4 classes during the day from 10AM-4PM and an evening popup with all proceeds going to CORE. It’s $5 at the door and $5 for drinks made by Lush Life Productions and Cleveland’s best bartenders.
