This afternoon I’ll be heading down to the Roadhouse World Flair in Covent Garden to try my hand as their new MC!
What is Roadhouse Flair?
Roadhouse is the biggest flair competition in the UK and almost certainly the longest running flair series in the world. Roadhouse has seen huge competitions like Legends of Bartending, Quest for the Best and Nations come and go. In 2016 Roadhouse has teamed up with the World Flair Association who now run the events on their behalf, with re-formatted rules that focus more on the bartending side of flair.
The underground bar in the heart of London’s famous Covent Garden has a reputation for having incredible flair bartenders behind the bar whenever you visit. Its iconic island bar at the heart of the venue is just one of three and features a vintage motorcycle above the back bar.
Why a new MC at Roadhouse?
Stephen Harman has been an amazing MC over the years at Roadhouse, but he’s is planning on standing down at the end of 2016 and so Roadhouse Flair is looking for their new MC to take them forward in 2017. Tonight 5 new MCs will audition, introducing 3 bartenders each and running through their performances.
