As we all know, famous mixologists from Las Vegas were key drivers in the national expansion of the USBG and the mixology movement. It’s quickly growing in size today with over 41 cities and thousands of members, which in part, is due to Sin City.

Now we are focusing that same energy on Tales of the Cocktail. As Vegas invades the festival this year, it is guaranteed to make a statement to the international cocktail community. This evening will be nothing but remarkable, filled with award-winning mixologists, hailing from the world’s finest hotels, and paired with the most innovative brands. This event will surely be the new crown jewel of Tales of the Cocktail.

“Those of us in Las Vegas know that it is a significant place in the world of mixology, this is our chance to highlight the best of the best and prove our position to industry leaders who are under-exposed to the city’s top-quality offerings.” – Tim Haughinberry, Back Bar USA
