Bishkek will host Kyrgyzstan Flair Open Challenge on September 10-11, Serdar Movliev, one of organizers, said.Bartenders from Dubai, London, Paris and Moscow will participate in the contest. They will have to mix cocktails for a certain period of time.Flair bartending is the practice of bartenders entertaining guests, clientele or audiences with the manipulation of bar tools and liquor bottles in tricky, dazzling ways. Competitions have been sponsored by liquor brands to attract flair bartenders, and some hospitality training companies hold courses to teach flair techniques. Sometimes referred to as "extreme bartending", the word flair became popular among practitioners in the mid 1990s. Also used as a verb (e.g "to be flairing"), the word refers to any trickery used by a bartender in order to entertain guests while mixing a drink. Flair can include juggling, flipping (bottles, shakers), manipulating flammable liquors or even performing close-up magic tricks (also referred to as "bar-magic").
