Hard Rock bartenders battle for top (shelf) honors

- They are the men and women who put the “art” in bartending – and Thursday night, some of the best in the business will take center stage at Hard Rock Café Atlanta for a rocking competition.

Hard Rock Café’s BARocker regional competition will take place Thursday night at 7 p.m. at the downtown Atlanta restaurant, bringing together Hard Rock Café bartenders from Foxwoods (CT), Orlando, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and New Orleans for a competition of showmanship and flair.  Contestants are judged on various elements including recipe knowledge, accuracy, and speed – and, of course, the showier the performance, the better. 

The winner will head to Hard Rock’s annual Global Conference in Orlando, where he or she will compete in the worldwide finals against other Hard Rock Café regional champs. 

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken, while no stranger to dropping and breaking things, is always trying to improve his showmanship skills – and spent the morning at Hard Rock Café Atlanta learning more about this (hopefully not) shattering competition!
