Got Flair?

Flair bartending. What’s that all about? This juggling-inspired diversion has become one of the hallmarks of many Vegas bars, including our very own Carnaval Court at Harrah’s Las Vegas, Shadow Bar at Caesars Palace, as well as iBar and VooDoo Lounge at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Flair bartending (or “flairing”) pretty much encompasses any tricks or movements used by bartenders to entertain guests, usually while they’re preparing and serving drinks. Showmanship is king in the world of flairing!

As you can imagine, lots of practice and precision are involved in this form of visual entertainment, and this “sport” has truly come into its own since the mildly silly 1988 movie “Cocktail” brought flair bartending into the mainstream.

Tons of flair bartending competitions have sprung up around the globe where the best in the field get to show off their stuff, but Las Vegas is still considered the “flair capital of the world.”

What do you need to be a flair bartender? Coordination. Patience. And, from the looks of this video, probably a good mop (just in case).


Are we having fun yet?
