Newport Gets To Meet The Country’s Hottest Bartenders This Monday Night

By  |  0 Comments

The United States Bartenders’ Guild is rolling into town.

The United States is enjoying a cocktail renaissance and Newport has far more than its share of talent on the bartending front. We have done just a little bit of “research” in the field. That said, when a whole bunch of the country’s heavy hitters are about to show up, it’s an event not to be missed.

Rhode Island is the spot for the 2015 USBG Leadership Conference and this Monday, starting at 9:30pm, Hope will be hosting an after-party event for their members…and you, the cocktail connoisseur that you are, are invited.

Both upstairs and Hope’s Underground will be open to accommodate what promises be a very large and very fun crowd.

So come on down, try some of head bartender Jesse Hedberg‘s signature cocktails, have them critiqued by his artisanal colleagues from across the country and see if any of them want to give him a run for his money behind the bar.
