Educating and inspiring Polish bar professionals

Better Bar Show

Better Bar Show – To inspire and develop Polish bar scene.

The Better Bar Show isn’t named this because it is „better” than other bar shows. It is a manifesto saying that the show aims to make the Polish bar scene better by improving everything, from actual bar builds, back bars, business, concept and theory, and of course improvement for bartenders themselves – in terms of the physical and the mind.
