Bartenders are the ultimate patron of both verbal and liquid empathy, but if you haven’t been behind the bar yourself, it can be hard to understand that the job is more than being a professional martini slinger. The WPB Best Bartender competition will have 5 participants against one another performing challenges designed to prove mastery of a range of bar-tending skills. Based on total votes on Downtown Dude’s Facebook and Instagram, here are your 5 bartenders that will compete:
Hauk Cornell from The Galley at Hilton WPB
Christa Knox all around WPB Startender and from Tiki-Ono
Scuba Steve Sinbine from Renegades WPB
Joseph Brader from Hullabaloo
Carlos Cardoso from Flair Street WPB
(1) $20 ticket gets you into the event, (1) free drink, (2) raffle tickets valued at $5 each, and chance to cast the final vote in what has become a viral contest as we search for West Palm’s top bartending talent!
