Updated: April 1, 2005

CarnavalFlair has grown bigger and bigger in the last three years. We are starting to see more and more Flair on television, radio, print and the internet (Travel Channel, Food Network, E!, Scrubs, Ellen, music videos, Flairbar.com etc…) than ever before.

We are slowly starting to be seen as a sport and the incorporation of Flair into main stream bartending is becoming more and more common place.

We are starting to see venues encouraging Flair from their bartenders and new Flair bars opening up. One of the newest Flair bars to hit the scene is in California. The Rockin’ Taco features a new team of Flair bartenders who are increasing sales as well as the party atmosphere. You can read all about it on our on our ‘Interviews’ page.
