Tales of Tales Season 3: Episode 3


Having a Theme Without Being a Theme Bar
Plus bonus interview with Neal Bodenheimer. 

Moderated by Michael Anstendig with special guests Mark Maynard-Parisi, Josh Mazza and Neal Bodenheimer.
There is a narrow line between a bar having a theme (good) and being a theme bar (not so good). What does it take to pull this off successfully? How can a bar honor a theme without being predictable, pigeon-holed or clichéed? In this seminar, we will meet three successful bar operators who manage to walk this line gracefully and with outstanding results.
