“Mixology has found its niche in Las Vegas,” said BACK BAR USA Founder and CEO Tim Haughinberry. “We developed ‘For The Love Of Cocktails’ to bring together some of the most passionate cocktail enthusiasts from across the country and we feel the event has done an excellent job in highlighting and supporting talented mixologists.”

Presented by top spirits consulting, marketing and design firm, BACK BAR USA, “For The Love Of Cocktails” spans the Las Vegas Strip in partnership with MGM Resorts International. The United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) will once again play a prominent role in the event through bringing in top mixologists and bartenders from across the nation. The event would not be complete without world-renowned mixologist and author Tony Abou-Ganim, whose non-profit, the Helen David Relief Fund for Bartenders Affected by Breast Cancer, receives proceeds directly from ticket sales.

Tickets start at $99 plus tax and are available for purchase on the For Love of Cocktails website.
