November is the month of the Athens Bar Show ! Every year in November for 2 days Athens becomes the center of the barworld and the alcohol industry, attracting the most influential bartenders and interesting cool-bar-personalities around the world.
Roots ,as for the past three years, was of course present with a supercool stand and for the first time with some very important guests, organising as well two after-show parties, one for every day of the show. Gabriele Manfredi, Roots ambassador in London and head bartender of London's talk of the town, Oriole bar, #32 in the world's top 50 bars and best new international cocktail bar at the Tales of the Cocktail 2016, and Eleonora Sasso, winner of the italian Roots competition, from Rome and La Zanzara bar !
We had a list of Roots all day long drinks, coming directly from some of Athens best bars !
