Sound Advice

Moderated by Jacob Briars
Panelists:  Nick Van Tiel, Vishel Vasan and Chris Leacock

In the rush to design brilliant spaces and stock bars with brilliant products, many otherwise brilliant bars are neglecting their music offering, and failing to stimulate the most powerful sense of all. Sasha Petraske used to say he’d made up his mind whether he liked a place 5 seconds after opening the door. Most of your customers probably do it in half that time. But how can this be if your guests haven’t yet had time to see your bespoke bitters and ice program? The answer is, they make that decision at the speed of sound. Music is the most important way to create an instant atmosphere in your venue. It can be used to instantly tell arriving guests what kind of venue this is, and perhaps more importantly, what kind it is not. This great seminar discuss not just the ascetics of the music playing in your bar, but the very serious legalities.  Also, acoustic and budgetary issues.

From Bartender to Bar Partner 

Bartenders are rising in the cocktail industry, not only creatively, but as partners in their bars and they are reaping the rewards of ownership. What does it take to find a partnership that works? How can bartenders find backers that see them as true partners, not just talent? In this seminar, we will meet three bartenders who are now partners and co-owners of their operations. They include Jim Kearns, who partnered to create Slowly Shirley, The Happiest Hour and Tijuana Picnic, Meaghan Dorman, who is a partner at The Bennett, Dear Irving and Raines Law Room with Alberto Benenati and Yves Jadot, as well as Lucinda Sterling, who is a partner at Middle Branch and Seaborne with the late Sasha Petraske.
 
Michael Anstendig, Partner at  Hanna Lee Communications Moderates this fascinating discussion.
