Death or Glory Bar in Delray Beach has resurrected the popular ‘Bar Brawl’ competition series, and will kick off this fast-paced, cut-throat, no holds barred (pun intended) elimination competition on Wednesday, June 12 at 9:30PM. The battle for the coveted crown will continue for 12 weeks, pitting 24 of the most badass cocktail professionals from Stuart to Fort Lauderdale against each other in a single elimination competition that runs through the finals on August 28.

“This competition is very similar to Game of Thrones,” said Ayme Harrison, co-owner, Death or Glory Bar. “Just without dragons and White Walkers. Or, well, a throne.”

Still, organizer and host Bob Higginbotham says, “Watch out. The competition for this title is fierce.” Originally the brainchild of Higginbotham and Scott Clifford, ‘Bar Brawls’ competitors will demonstrate their craft using knowledge of classic cocktails, spirits and techniques, then be judged by a panel of cocktail ‘experts’ (i.e., people who drink a lot of cocktails.) The winning contestant will win a $750 cash prize. Tickets to attend each weekly event start at $10 for general admission, or ringside seats can be purchased for $25. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Wounded Warrior Project.

‘Bar Brawls’ will start each Wednesday at 9:30PM at Death or Glory Bar, 116 NE 6th Avenue, Delray Beach. Full dinner service will be available during Bar Brawls both inside and in the outdoor dining area until 11PM, then a late-night menu will be available until closing.
