Japan's Professional Bartender's Organization has announced the date of this year's PBO Cocktail & Bar Festa will be July 29. So around a month earlier than last year. Now in its 4th year, the 2018 edition will once again it will be held at Courtyard Marriot Ginza Tobu.
The theme of this year's Festa will be Bartending Experience. That may sound familiar, since it's the same as last year's theme -- read my event report from last year here. Advance tickets are 4000 yen or 5000 yen at the door! With Gin Live Tokyo on July 28, this will be a busy weekend.
Don't forget that we also have the first ever nomunication.jp Whisky Bottle Share the week prior, on July 21!
