L’INFINITE BAR

Imagine a bar the length of an Olympic-sized swimming pool… Along a 50-metre stretch, a great number of bars will be showcasing craft brands and mixology, making this unmissable space the hub of Be Spirits!

A meeting place for bartenders and brands, this area will faithfully reproduce the world of bars: each section of the bar will be sponsored by prestigious local bar or hotel and hosted by their mixologist. This is an opportunity for famous and growing brands alike to showcase their products and promote them in an exceptional setting. It also promises a unique experience for visitors! The Infinite Bar will promote interaction between the diverse actors in the sector.

A map will show the locations of these bars in the city, so that the immersive daytime experience at the show can continue into the evening. Strongly anchored in its local territory, the Infinite Bar will be a showcase for current and future trends in the world of spirits. This breakthrough concept aims to illustrate new consumption trends and patterns by providing a platform for current and future industry players.
