Result: Chicks with Flicks, September 2019

At the end of September, we saw some of the world’s most talented female flair bartenders descend upon The Roadhouse in Covent Garden, London.

Each and every month The Roadhouse plays host to a flair bartending competition, these are known as The Roadhouse Heats – with the Grand Final following in November. Now in October, we have only one Heat remaining before the big event, exciting!

As we are sure you have already worked out, Chicks with Flicks is only open to female flair bartenders, celebrating what the girls bring to the world of flair and offering three talented individuals a chance to win the World Championship in the Roadhouse Grand Finals in November. In the last three years, this event has seen three different champions. So it was all to play for, here is what went down…

The Result

This year, the number one spot and a coveted Roadhouse trophy went to Daniela Istrate (@danielaistrate) and it has been a long time coming. She was very happy to finally get her hands on this trophy and of course the £850 that came with it!

Congratulations to Daniela. Congratulations are also in order for Olya Sabinina (@olyasabanina) who continues her rise in the world of flair bartending with second place, and to Silvia Lena who took third. As Olya has already secured a spot in the Grand Finals as part of her Tandem victory, fourth place Adri De Lucia (@adride-lucia) gains a place in the Grand Finals.

What is next?

Our final Roadhouse Heat of the year is next and it is the last iteration of the World Open, which means a return to the normal style of scoring and rules. For those bartenders that haven’t put themselves in the running to win the Roadhouse Grand Finals in November, this is your last chance! It’s the competition every flair bartender wants to win at least once – who will be crowned World Champion this year?
