Cocktails in Portugal - The Lisbon Bar Show 2019

A language we thought we knew, a country we thought we could imagine & a level of hospitality that completely blew us out of the water. A bar show with a quintessentially Mediterranean attitude & approach to guests as well as organisation makes it truly one of a kind.

We'd first met Emmanuel Minez & Alberto Pires in a swimming pool somewhere in Ibiza drinking gin & tonics whilst discussing the trials & tribulations of creating a bar show. This is the atmosphere that we found ourselves enveloped by when we'd first visited the now infamous bar in the capital of Portugal.

The building was some listen heritage site, we had a personal VIP area because we'd managed to somehow convince the organisers that we were worth it & that VIP area had UNLIMITED champagne, a personal chef & a massage parlour!
