Designed to showcase the creative beverage talents behind the area’s locally-owned, independent restaurants, Set The Bar’s Cocktail Competition will highlight accomplished mixologists representing establishments from the northern tip of Anna Maria Island to the southern shores of Venice Beach. “The Best” libations will be decided by an expert panel as well as  event attendees who will be tasked with sampling and savoring the contenders’ creations before judging the competitors on Flavor, Appearance, Bartender Presentation and Imagination. 

In addition to exclusive access to the most skilled beverage innovators in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, guests at Set The Bar enjoy live entertainment, a chance drawing, and light bites presented by fellow Sarasota-Manatee Originals’ Member Restaurants.

Like the Chefs in the kitchen, our local bartenders are an integral part of today’s service industry, playing a vital role in creating an exciting atmosphere and enjoyable guest experience.
