Select bars from all over San Diego County are being brought together under one roof for a “One Night Only” event to highlight some of the best bars that America’s Finest City has to offer. The San Diego Bartender Shakedown presented by Imbibe was designed to showcase San Diego’s finest cocktail bars to the community at large, while highlighting some of our brightest cocktail makers, as well as our favorite spirits. Some of our personal favorites will be showcasing the best of the best libations. Among some of the bars that'll be there -- False Idol, Grass Skirt, Polite Provisions, Park & Rec, Raised by Wolves, Kindred, Sycamore Den and Noble Experiment, to name a few. The event will be held on Saturday, March 2 in Liberty Station at 2875 Dewey Road, building 177. The event is from 6 to 10 p.m. GA tickets are $65 and VIP tickets are $100. All tickets include access to the event, where guests will be able to sample craft cocktails from twenty one of San Diego's best bars. Ticket includes everything, there is nothing more to buy. You must be +21 to attend the event.

The event is part of San Diego's annual Bartender Weekend, which is a three-day, industry-focused, networking event aimed at promoting the “Spirit of Hospitality” embodied throughout the profession of Bartending. Now in its 6th year, this San Diego based event has captivated the hearts and minds of Service and Hospitality Professionals worldwide, as well as the Brands that support them. And as with previous years all proceeds from any the "Weekend’s" events are donated to its industry relevant charity partners. Big shout out to the event organizers Chris Patino and Erick Castro.

Here's a video produced by Behind the Stick about why San Diego bartenders love crafting cocktails.
