This weekend, Bar Brawl, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa’s own battle of the bartenders, returns to jade bar for its fifth year. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. through August 25, top mixologists from around the Valley will battle for the ultimate title of Bar Brawl Champion.
New this year is Bar Brawl’s theme, Hotels vs. Bars, which pits the finest bartenders from popular local hotels and bars against one another to determine which one truly reigns over the area. Resort guests and cocktail-lovin’ locals are invited to cheer on the competitors while enjoying music by DJ Hybrid and a selection of food and drink at happy hour prices.
Sanctuary’s Executive Chef Beau MacMillan and jade bar manager Eddie Garcia will co-host the event with celebrity judges.
