Master Class & Bar Management Class with Alex Kratena

On Wednesday, 6 of April the seminar with Alex Kratena took place, a seminar we have been planning and organizing for more than five months. We are pleased to announce that more than 170 participants from all over Greece and Cyprus attended our seminar, making it one of the most successful, if not the most successful seminar for bartenders and bar professionals, organized in Greece.

First of all, we would like to thank the one and only Mr. Alex Kratena who accepted our invitation and visited Thessaloniki for the first time in order to present a fantastic seminar in his own unique way. Alex shared with us stories from all those years of experience he spent in the field of bartending, he talked about creativity and how we can improve,  how to successfully run a bar and how to create an awesome cocktail menu! We had the pleasure to spend a little more time with him, and he proved to us, that even if you are a super star and the best at your job, you can also be the coolest person, super friendly and the best guest we could ever have! Alekos, we can’t wait to have you back in Thessaloniki!

Also we would like to thank all the participants who traveled from all around Greece and Cyprus. Your participation really exceeded our expectations. Thank you for trusting us. We promise that we will do even more in the future!

We would also like to thank Absolut Elyx and Pernod Ricard Hellas, Nice Ice, The Met Hotel and its staff for their hospitality, our member Marios Zlatinis for the translation during the seminar, our member Vangelis Sigkridis for the cocktail preparation, Mr Panos Mansalis for the video coverage,  our member Aliki Xanthopoulou and Ms Ioanna Tsakalidou for the photography, Mr Yannis Oikonomidis for the graphic design, Mr Giannis Papaioannou for setting up the place, and all the other members of the Bar Testament’s team who contributed to the seminar’s success.

The Bar Testament promises to try even harder and provide you with even better things in the future! Thank you all so much!
