Star of the Bar Competition

Top mixologists shake things up as they battle it out for the title of “Star of the Bar.”

Mixology Masters Take the Stage

Star of the Bar® Mixology Competition

This event elevates the craft of bartending to new levels by providing a national platform for mixologists to highlight their skills and creativity. Restaurants, bars, and other businesses that sell beverage alcohol on-premise are invited from across the country to submit an application and original cocktail recipe for the opportunity to compete.

Entries are reviewed and scored by a panel of judges made up of professional mixologists and competition ambassadors. Those submissions that receive the top 7 highest scores are invited to select one mixologist from their business to represent them and compete in the Star of the Bar National Finals that is held in conjunction with the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, IL.
