ROADHOUSE WORLD FLAIR HISTORY

The Roadhouse flair bartending competitions began in August 1999 as an in-store showcase where Roadhouse bartenders would get on stage with a table full of bottles and flair to entertain the crowds.  From those humble beginnings, it became a Roadhouse vs TGI Fridays flair-bartending competition and shortly after that, it grew to include the neighbouring bars; Cheers, Navajo Joes and Maxwells.  After that, it blew up and bartenders started phoning up (no Facebook or social media back then) asking if they could come and compete, the rest, as they say, is history…

Today, Roadhouse World Flair is recognised as an icon within the bartending world.  It is one of the only competitions that people fly in just to watch.  It is the competition that sets the precedence for what flair will be like in the coming year and it continues to inspire countless individuals to start a career in bartending pushing those already working in the industry to develop and practice their skills still further.

This is the competition where we expect to see the newest and biggest moves, the best crowd-pleasing, outrageous routines that you can imagine, not to mention the best, most appreciative and most knowledgeable crowd just beyond your feet!

Do not hold back, do not be scared, just go out there and rock that stage!

Although, this year there will be a twist!  We want to show the world your technical skills as bartenders…
