Bar Wars - May 20, 2017
Bar Wars brings together the best bartenders from Denver’s favorite LGBT bars and pits them head-to-head in mixology competitions, creating original cocktail recipes in five rounds to determine who will be named the Best of the Best. The community plays an important role in this event; first, nominating your favorite bartender at each participating bar to be sent to Bar Wars to compete; and second, being the taste test judges and selecting the winner at Bar Wars. This year's event will be hosted by the 2016 Bar Wars winner, X BAR (629 East Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80203).
Proceeds from this event benefit the the Denver Colorado AIDS Project.
