REVOLUTION - Bars are Changing! Bar Magazines as well

NewImage

 

Month ago, I wrote a few articles for the great Bartender Magazin from Slovakia. Thinking about the Drinking. Luboš Rácz, a known friend from Nitra, contacted me that times to writes a few lines.

Today he contacted me again. And he send me some amazing news about REVOLUTION in the Bar Magazine Business. I just downloaded the first Edition of the Digital Version (in English) for just 1,59 € to my iPad. And I LOVE the way how they did it. I will now dig into reading more. But the content looks great.

So, standing ovations to Slovakia. Seems like you are the first in business who published a magazine online on the right devices because you understood that our trade is international and digital. We do not need national BAr Magazines, we need a global one.

Here is the link to the App. If will find it in your "Newspaper Kiosk" and can download each issue their.

We are now very excited to launch the Cocktails Spirits Awards. 

The CS Awards will honor the best ten bars in Europe.

To be fair in selecting Europe ten best bars we have approached movers & shakers & people from our industry, in order to ask them to send us they preferred three bars in Europe...this is you chaps!

What is important is that these three bars are chosen in regards to this year only (2011-2012), they don't have to be only your favorite ever bars but rather three bars that have really impressed you within the last year in Europe.

This why we are reaching out to you today simply to ask if you could send us your three favorite bars in Europe.

What are the three bars located in Europe which you think are the best today?
What are the bars which you have visited in Europe within the last year and that you find are the best all across europe?

You can send more than three if you wish.

Email your selection to julie@cocktailspirits.com

Thanks for your help.

Cheers

Yesterday I read the news, that James Bond is going to drink beer instead of Martinis in his new Film.
We Hamburg people know how to deal with this. Some advice for Daniel Craig and his SKYFALL.  I love this Video Fragment on youtube:
