Bartenders from all over Europe, key industry “movers & shakers”, buyers, distributors, brand owners, producers, brand ambassadors visited the show, attended conferences, presented, especially shared and exchanged during the Paris Bar Show’s two days.
With a 30% growth in the attendance, Cocktails Spirits has become an international event and a must visit for the European scene.

New York City’s newcomer Dead Rabbit, Istanbul’s “Bar with no name”, Munich’s Gamsei bar, Copenhagen’s Ourselves Alone, London’s Happiness Forgets, Stockholm’s Little Quarter and Gent’s Jigger’s The Noble Drugstore shared their experiences and their “savoire faire” with the audience.
