The Central Flair Series

Central Flair Series, Roadhouse,

The Central Flair Series is brand new for 2016! Based in Birmingham and operated by BartenderHQ and the West Midlands Flair Club, we’re trying some new ideas and taking the best of competitions from the past to create what we hope will be the most fun event every month for bartenders everywhere.

The Central Flair Series builds on the success of 5 years of Masters of Flair events in the Midlands. Masters of Flair has built a reputation of great events with bartenders travelling from across Europe to compete.

We know it can be hard for some bartenders to make it to the huge events in London like the awesome Roadhouse World Flair, so everything we’re doing with the Central Flair Series is designed to make it as easy and welcoming as possible for bartenders to compete, whether they’re new to flair or a seasoned pro.

Central Flair Series in a Nutshell

5 minutes, 2 measured pours, 2 simple drinks. All your bottles and tools provided, you just bring your music and your tins. Simples.


We are currently in talks with a number of potential sponsors for the Central Flair Series. These will be announced as soon as we can confirm the details. If you’re a brand and you’re interested in supporting the Central Flair Series, please get in touch with BartenderHQ.

The Midlands Flair League

Eligible bartenders will have their results from each event added to the league for local bartenders – this will be an ongoing competition throughout the year to encourage bartenders to attend as many events as possible, though there is no obligation to be at every event! The winner will be announced at our December final event.

Novice Category

In addition, to encourage new bartenders to enter, those bartending less than 12 months will be eligible for an additional prize awarded to the highest placed novice bartender. Novices are of course also in the main event and league points if they’re from the Midlands too.
