The Bars & Bartenders Association of India (BBAI) is an organization formed in New Delhi in 2013 by a small group of Bartenders with a simple mission: to foster community and promote awareness about responsible drinking and the advancement of the profession of Bartending in India.
One of our main functions is to serve as an educational platform for our members to learn more about service, spirits, beer, wine, and cocktails. We also partner up with bar industry brands and companies through associate memberships, providing opportunities for bartenders to connect with bartenders and work together to push the industry in new and exciting directions. The BBAI represents a collective voice for bar owners & bartenders to have a constructive dialogue with their respective regional liquor licensing and excise departments across India, with the aim of raising awareness of quality products to provide to consumers.
You must own or associated with a bar, liquor trade or be a bartender working in India to join the Bars &. Bartenders Association of India (BBAI)
Membership for the BBAI gives bartenders the exposure to the array of events and competitions held throughout the year and around the globe by both BBAI or other liquor company. The Association promotes a high standard of workmanship and encourages the development of creative new cocktails through rewarding competitions both at home and abroad. The Association also maintains a strict code of ethics within the bartending business. It also provides a forum for communication between its members and associate members from the wine and spirit trades. This relationship provides opportunities for the drinks trade to present new brands, hold tasting events and sponsor cocktail competitions.
We are a registered Company under the Company Law and BBAI works on a Non-Profit policy. All of the funds we raise are allocated to provide events, education and benefits for our membership.
We invite working or aspiring Bartenders and industry friends to join our growing community and connect with other passionate, like-minded individuals through our website and by attending events happening in your local community.
