What's On

What is Flair?

Flair Bar tending is a form of entertainment behind the bar whilst mixing cocktails.  It involves manipulating objects, ingredients and items found behind the bar in an impressive manner.  Tom Cruise made it famous in the film Cocktail.  Now-a-days you’ll see all different types of flair bar tending being used from the action-thrilling extreme to the more refined more typical of a 5 star hotel bar.

The Competition

Why is Flair so popular at Roadhouse? Many competitors will talk of the extreme pressure they feel taking to the stage. Performing in front of 500 spectators and some of the world’s best bar tenders can be pretty daunting but smash that killer move and you’ll be a hero with an eruption from the crowd! Roadhouse is where bar tenders become legends!

Flair Competition Types

Bottle Tin is King

One of the most awaited competitions of the year is Bottle Tin Is King.  Every year we see some old flair faces grace the stage and show the new generation how it’s done.  We are working on some nice surprises for you this year. Bartenders are limited to only 2 objects throughout their entire routine, so it’s all about originality and the show they perform.  They still need to make 2 cocktails, while showing us their most diverse range of moves they have with just two objects.

WFA Flair Battle Competition

Ever witnessed a break dance battle? Our Flair Battle Competition is exactly the same but we’re switching up the dance moves with the best flair bartenders! Come and join us and check out some of the newest moves around! Things get heated on stage as the world’s best bartenders go head to head to win a place in the Roadhouse World Flair Final.

WFA World Open

The WFA World Open is made up of 3 heats and 1 grand final. The competition was formed for a growing global competitor base and to ensure all have an opportunity to take a position in the final.

Bartender Challenge

A multi round bartending competition held at the Roadhouse in London! See the UK’s best bartenders battling it out over 3 rounds of mixology, speed and flair bartending to see who will become the grand champion

WFA Flair Tandem Competition

In this competition we see teams of bar tenders grace the stage and work together to put on a performance.  For many years the “Got Talent” shows have had many two man/woman teams grace the stage and reach the finals, so it’s time to see how they do it in a real life flair bar tending competition.  With a minimum of two people performing at once they are judged on how well they work as one and whether they are in synchronicity with each other.

This is the flair competition which all UK flair bartenders want to win. Expect to see the best of the best in the UK flairing up a storm while making 2 cocktails at the same time.

Girls can Flair too!  That’s right and without doubt some of the world’s best flair bartenders! We have the best female flair bartenders from all over the world flying in to win what has become known as the best female flair bartender competition in the world.  Expect big moves, sassy groves and the feminine touch to go with it.
