Main/Mini Stage Entertainment

Main Stage: Showcasing Bartenders’ Techniques, the current bar scene and more
You will have the opportunity to watch world-class bartending techniques, as well as other shows/performance such as talk shows, fruit-cutting, and flair bartending. We have invited guest bartenders both from overseas and locally. We have Mr. Peter Dorelli as a ‘Legend’ and Mr. Jim Meehan as a ‘Rising Star’. Their Japanese counterparts are present also. As a ‘Legend’, we have Mr. Takao Mori, well known as ‘Mr. Martini’. As  a ‘Rising Star’, Mr. Fumiyasu Mimitsuka, last year’s International Bartenders Association Cocktail Competition champion, will also be on stage. An interesting competition called ‘Nadeshiko Bartending Challenge’ will take place where lady bartenders will make their own special cocktails.

Mini Stage: For Those Who Want to Know More!

We have Mini Stages (Free!) this year, instead of the ‘masterclasses’ that were held until last year. There are over 40 Mini Stages that will be held at two locations on the underground level. Each Mini Stage accommodates 50 participants and will provide one drink.
Queuing tickets will be available on the day (with some exceptions), at the host exhibitors’ booths. These tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend you save time by purchasing your Entry Ticket in advance rather than on the door (you also save JY1,000 in this way!).

Mini-Stage Queuing Tickets

Queuing tickets will be, with some exceptions*, available at the host exhibitors’ booths (up to 3 tickets per person), each day. Please check where the brand booth you are interested in is located. There is a map on the TIBS Magazine you will receive when you enter.
*Some Mini Stages can be applied online from here.
