Ark had the honor to host the international World Class Competition 2015.
Just after eight o’clock on Monday, June 15, the top bartenders of Greece were competing to select the one who got to represent Greece in the international competition in Cape Town. Agony and spectacle were the main characteristics of the evening awarding Manolis Lykiardopoulos as the winner, who will claim the title of World Class Bartender of the Year.

With Ark as the perfect retro- inspired background, home of last year’s World Class winner Teo Spiropoulo, the 12 finalists competed in three tests in front of highly acclaimed judges like British Spike Marchant -World Class Global Brand Ambassador, Charles Joly – last year’s winner of the global competition and World Class the Head Bartender of London’s Nightjar, Marian Beke

It was a unique evening! Papatheocharis group of companies invited everyone for a night full of Greek flavors, inspired cocktails and some great music.

Starting with a tour guide throughout Greece with the recipes of renowned chef John Baxevani, we moved on to the mesmerising cocktails inspired by Teo Spyropoulos exclusively for the Ark with top dj Alexandros Christopoulos in charge of the soundtrack of the evening!

We want to thank all our famous friends who responded to our invite, but even more so a thank you to all of you, for both your kind comments and for the support not only that night, but every day since then. Lets have a great summer!
