BAROMETER 2019

BAROMETER 2019

Bar industry like any other market is constantly evolving – culture, technologies, relationships, marketing, role and business models undergo numerous changes. Last year, we studied such important phenomenon as “norms shift”. However, what should remain unchanged is “roots”.
For this reason, in 2019 we look in the opposite direction – the roots, the origins. Roots fuel growth – and we want to explore together with you the origins of creativity, development, industry growth and evolution of an individual inside it.
Roots hold us firmly in the ground of reality, guarantee stability.
If our ground is culture, time and reality, then we should figure out how modern culture and focus on sustainable development influence and nurture the bar world today.
The topic of BAROMETER International Bar Show 2019 is ROOTS.
Barometer ROOTS: let’s drink the history!

The bar is open 7 days a week from 19:00 to 01:00 from Sunday to Thursday and from 19:00 to 03:00 on Fridays and Saturdays. In addition to the author’s cocktails, we prepare classic ones and our own tinctures.

We try to make drinks understandable for guests. The bar serves snacks: tartar, shrimps, calamari, tapas, cheese or meat plate. On weekends it’s noisy and fun in here, and on weekdays it’s a wonderful place to get a glass or two and to chat with friends or bartenders. There is no face control since we believe that a bar is a place where anyone can come. There are almost no random people — the atmosphere itself “pushes” them out into the street.

Usually it’s jazz or funk playing in the bar. The interior includes several art objects dedicated to the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. The menu also corresponds to the name of the institution: drinks are divided into “chapters” reflecting Freud’s ideas. For example, the Privat Practice section comprises recipes from bartenders from various bars and a couple of recipes from Freud Bar professionals. The chapter Imaginarium of Doctor Freud is devoted to books, movies, music. The ideas of all the drinks presented here were inspired by one of his works. In addition to the main list of cocktails, there are three inserts that quickly change when necessary: ​​various offers and promotions (seasonal cocktails, participation in events, etc.); tinctures; snacks.

Le Syndicat

Paris, France

Few years ago the new era of bartending went to the chase of niche particular foreign spirits from everywhere. Witnessing this Romain Le Mouellic and Sullivan Doh came, 4 years ago, with an obvservation: France is worldwide known for making great spirits but those are either exported or drunk locally. Why not trying to undust those bottles and give them bright and shine?

Le Syndicat was born.

The first cocktail bar using only French alcohol in order to showcase the diversity our land is offering and bring those forgotten liquors back on the front stage. As we noticed Cognac was famous in the hip-hop scene in America, the idea was to get our Cognac back to the menu and take their music to instore a balance.

Pouring French spirits while listening hip hop, that’s what we do. With a bar program dedicated to share our patrimony, we take inspiration from a bottomless pit and keep on challenging ourselves to make sure the customer experience is the best we can do.

Le Syndicat Cocktail Club – when GrandPa’s spirits go Gangsta!

Persons in charge:

Juliette Larrouy, one of the new Head Bartenders at Le Syndicat Cocktail Club started in the kitchen. After growing up in the south of the France, she came to Paris to start the famous culinary school, Ferrandi.

She worked for Michellin-starred Chiberta, Briketenia and then one year at Claude Colliot where she became a sous-chef.

In search for a fresh start and new challenge she started at Le Syndicat three years ago as a waitress, gradually bringing in her knowledges concerning food in the syrup preparation and “mise en place” cooking technique. Then she started learning about the bar and spirits, and after three solid years she is today co-managing Le Syndicat Cocktail Club with Giovanni Allario.

Giovanni Allario is one of the new Head Bartenders at Le Syndicat Cocktail Club. He was born in Caracas, Venezuela and grew up in Genova, Italy.

His international background pushes him to travel and, after graduating in Industrial and Graphic Design in his hometown, he moves to Spain to learn about cocktails and hospitality.

Couple of years later we find him in Paris working at Danico, discovering new techniques and flavors, and finally he landed at Le Syndicat, where after two years of learning french spirits and improving his skills he today is co-managing Le Syndicat Cocktail Club with Juliette Larrouy.

Cloud Garden

Vinnitsa, Ukraine

Cloud Garden Bar is situated in the heart of the city, in the historic area between two churches, and it’s the only bar to have an open terrace overlooking the old and new city.

The establishment was opened in July 2018 and gained considerable popularity thanks to the hard work of the bar team and the general concept of the place.

The bar menu focuses on the cocktail and coffee cards. We offer only high-quality alcohol in a good assortment that can satisfy needs of any guest. Thanks to a wide choice, our expertise and equipment, we support the world culture of mixology in its latest manifestations.

Cocktail card consists of several blocks. The main one is Specialty Cocktails. Its concept is based on seven colors of the rainbow — each of the seven cocktails of different colors corresponds to the personality of one of the bartenders. The psychology of human perception of colors is taken into account when selecting the aroma, taste and character of the cocktail.

The second block is Tasting Cocktails. Its main feature is its impermanence. We change the cocktails of this block according to the change of seasons as well as trends in the styles of the world cocktail culture.

The trend of combination of alcohol and coffee is becoming more and more pronounced in the bar culture. In the Cloud Garden, we brew coffee made of SvitKavy roasted grains (fifth place in the world in the nomination “Best Roast 2017”).

We have 4 people in our team: Alexey Hmiliar, Maxim Yukhimchuk, Alexander Stoliarov, Dmitriy Galaiskiy.

The team have work experience at the best bars and restaurants of the country — from Odessa to Kyiv. The Mixology magazine has also provided a review on Cloud Garden.

Spicy No Spicy

Kyiv, Ukraine

The main features of our bar are unsweetened accents, unusual tastes and combinations as well as the Japanese tradition of MizuWari (a combination of strong alcohol and tea cordials). When designing and developing the cocktail card, we paid much attention to oriental botanicals that allows us to complement and emphasize the taste of Asian dishes. Most of the drinks we prepare in the bar are light, with more delicate and elegant taste.

We have a habit of introducing something new and unusual in new editions of the menu. In the spring-summer menu there will be a serving in the conception of food-pairing! The idea is the following: oysters, gin and dry vermouth. At first glance there is nothing unusual but we came up with a kind of a ceremony for our guest. We serve an oyster sprinkled with gin and with lemon peel with a glass of chilled dry vermouth. It’s a kind of “Dry Martini” with oysters — aesthetics and taste are guaranteed!

In the bar there are trend directions such as eco, recycling, sous kind and so on …

SpicyNoSpicy is a quite young institution (opened last September), there are no team rewards yet, but we are on the way and we do our best to do it every day! But on the whole institution is among the 12 finalists of the Restaurant Business Palm Tree 2019.

Red Frog

Lisbon, Portugal

Located on the most luxurious avenue of Lisbon, “Avenida da Liberdade”, there is a concept that aim to serve and show what is best made in the art of bar and cocktails, with great inspiration in Speakeasy concept that arises from cities like London and New York, especially during the period of the “dry law” or “Prohibition” in the United States, but with the identity of our city, country and culture, making this our difference.

The structure of our vision is to demonstrate the various periods where the culture and consumption of cocktails were more visible and creative, the golden age of cocktails, early 19th century, through the “Prohibition” in the 20s and early 30s, or revolutionary periods like the 50-s and 70-s, culminating in the modernity of the 90 years of the cocktails to the present, adding to it the way you operate the camera when it is asked to “press for cocktail” to get in the space.

We function only with places sitting, swing music, jazz, funk or rock that help create the desired atmosphere, the decor inspired by 20´s and 30´s, complete isolation from the outside world from entering the bar, and the intention of being a social bar regaining the bohemian spirit, festive and point against all lovers of the world of bar and social fellowship.

Adler’s Passage 13

Ternopil, Ukraine

Adler’s Passage is a secret of Ternopil because it’s situated on the street that doesn’t exist anymore. The additional mystification is linked to the number “13” which has always been associated with something mysterious by people from all around the world. And the true spirit of witchcraft and pharmacy is passed to us by Ignatius Adler, a former dweller of the house where our bar is located.

Mixing cocktails as well as preparing chemist’s potions requires experience, knowledge and certain skills that our bartenders have and can surprise every our guest. How? Then can do it beginning with classic cocktails, ending with their own author’s recipes and chef bartender’s recipes. Our cocktail card and assortment of alcohol are harmoniously matched with dishes in the style of “casual food”.

We are the very institution that keeps the style, follows trends (that is proved by our INSTAmenu) without losing historical spirit or changing traditions.
