Stamford’s Best Bartender Contest

Stamford Best Bartender Contest

Stamford’s Best Bartender Contest is Stamford Magazine’s annual hunt for the city’s top bartending talent! The ever-growing event is held on the waterfront patio of Harbor Point in Stamford and features summer dishes from the area’s best restaurants and chefs, along with signature cocktails from the bartenders vying for first place.

Local area residents and visitors have the opportunity to not only taste expertly crafted cocktails, but vote for their favorite signature cocktail. It’s a perfect Stamford summer evening with waterside views, and bites and drinks designed by talented local chefs and brands. Summer music, chef meet n’ greets and one-of-a-kind experiences create a lively evening to remember.
