After premiering at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin this past March, the documentary film, Hey Bartender, was similarly well received in New York City at The East Village Cinema! We are proud to announce that the film will be screening this week in Boulder at the Dairy Center for the Arts from 6/24-6/29!
The rebirth of cocktail culture has been a prominent trend within the last couple of years and we’ve definitely seen the art of mixology here in Boulder elevate our bar and restaurant scene to a destination in its own right. With the immense popularity of bartending competitions like Boulder’s Best Mixologist and our outstanding selection of local distilleries like 303 Vodka and Roundhouse Spirits, Boulderites have a distinct fondness for carefully crafted drinks that could be heralded as a piece of art. It seems that we are on trend, as this documentary delves into the immaculate craft of mixology and those that strive to make a career of this form of art.
Tonight, The Dairy Center will premier the documentary and host a fun competition including mixologists from several of Boulder’s best cocktailiers including Black Cat, Frasca, The Kitchen, Oak, Qs, and Salt all trying their hand at creating a new drink using locally distilled Sno Vodka!
Make sure you check out the film while it’s still in town, and stop by The Dairy this evening for more excitement!
