Japanese-inspired cocktails to be crafted in Jozi #mooteespaza
October 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On Tuesday 30th October, the critically acclaimed hot-spot, Mootee Bar, will be hosting one of their legendary #mooteespaza events. Mootee Bar together with Bacardi Varsity is proud to be hosting Jimmy Barrat from Zuma Dubai who is listed as the 69th Best Bar in the World. They will be preparing drinks from their award-winning Asian fusion menu.
Locals and cocktail enthusiasts have the opportunity to be transported to exotic locations around the world through a one of a kind cocktail experience, without having to set foot outside of the suburb. From a Glitter Globe Gimlet and a Rubabu to a classic Japanese Old Fashioned and a littl’ something special, you’ll get to watch a spectacular showcase of creativity and taste sensations.
Jimmy and the Bacardi Varsity students will be conducting a workshop from 11h30 – 13h00 followed by a guest shift at 20h00. Jimmy will be bringing, alongside his unique style of drink mixing, rare and interesting Japanese ingredients to serve his thought provoking and mouthwatering concoctions.
More information on Mootee Bar:
Inspired by the very essence of Africa, Mootee Bar takes all the juxtapositions of the beautiful continent, shakes it up and takes your senses on a journey from Cape to Cairo. Having opened their doors less than a year ago, Mootee Bar is already receiving critical acclaim and is being recognised on the global stage after recently being named one of the 10 Best New Cocktail Bars in the 2018 Spirit Awards.
Owned by four renowned mixologists with vast experience in hospitality across the globe, this 120-seater in Mellville (Johannesburg) also boasts an outside rooftop deck, open air alley seating and a private lounge. With a space that is relaxed and fun, many comment on the fact that it holds broad appeal – this despite the fact that the venue boasts all the latest gastronomy and mixology gadgets found in only the very best of bars. Thus, another testament that Mootee Bar is about to lead from the front and set the trends on the African continent.
The cocktail menu took eight months to develop and, unlike traditional cocktail menus, the recipes are not displayed. Instead, patrons are enticed to explore the twelve cocktails – each inspired by a classic African tale – through a unique visual interpretational technique. Over-and-above the cocktail menu, Mootee Bar also has a well-balanced wine-list and selection of spirits, all contributing again to the bar’s broad appeal. It’s no wonder Mootee Bar is on the fast-track to becoming the continent’s #1.
