We have long been waiting for it: behind the bar counters; acrossthe bar tables and the Italian streets. We have been waiting for it even before that long, dark tunnel that began on March 2020, and hit the hospitality industry so hard.

But, after a winter and a spring so full of shows and conferences, May 2022 finally arrived, and brought along the roar of a Bar Industry that is reaching its peak with the Roma Bar Show: the appointment with the world of international mixology that took place in the fascinating setting of Palazzo dei Congressi c/o EUR (Rome). An event marked by meetings, masterclasses, talks, tastings and art exhibitions dedicated to the universe of beverage and hospitality.

Inspired by the ancient Oriental deities, the Gran Teatro della Miscelazione went on stage on May 30th and 31st at the booth T04. True protagonists of the event: Prohibito – The new way of mixing, and many international guests who shared their experience and knowledge on the latest trend and news in the field of mixology.

From the Far East, with the consultations of the I-ching oracles, an ancient instrument used by Confucio during the ancient Chinese civilisation, to the mystical Oriental deities, with devotional songs dedicated Krishna, Lord Ganesh, in a spiritual shaman Dub version. An incredible journey lead by spiritual DJ Marino Ottaviani (@mymantra_marino_ottaviani), Master of Evolutionary Tarot Franca Bisulli (@francabis), and resident DJ Fabio Ruggiero, through deep, suggestive atmosphere of the Orient-inspired cocktails specially created by our guests.
