Every year we challenge bartenders from around Savannah area to reimagine cocktails for a chance at being named the official “People’s Choice’ winner of the Bartenders Challenge. The area’s finest mixologists whip up their best craft cocktails to impress our panel of judges during the preliminaries in September. Their recipe includes one of our sponsor spirits of either vodka, gin, bourbon, tequila, whiskey and more.
With the preliminary and semi-final rounds being held at The Grove Restaurant and Rooftop Bar, the public is invited to come out and cheer on the competitors during these advance competition rounds. Admission is only $10 at each event and comes with one free sponsor brand drink and a selection of appetizers. All ticket sales are at the door for each round of competition.
Five winners from each of the preliminary rounds go on to compete for “People’s Choice” during Secret Savannah Speakeasy on November 8, 2018.
Interested in competing? Eligible bartenders may sign up for the challenge by registering here.
(Our featured judges are being finalized and will be updated as they confirm their participation)
