Award-winning London bar Artesian is championing collaboration and imaginative mixology via an inventive new workshop and guest bar series.

The watering hole, which is located within luxury hotel The Langham, has announced the launch of Artesian Atelier, which will see leading bar teams from the global cocktail scene (and additional participants from London’s best bars) invited to take part in a private workshop in the hotel’s state-of-the-art cookery school, Sauce by The Langham. Given a selected topic and ingredients, the teams will experiment and create together, documenting the process to share the session’s outcomes and learnings with the wider bar community on their digital platforms. The following day, Artesian will host a guest shift, making the cocktail creation designed collaboratively between its in-house team and the visiting bar available to guests for one day only.

Led by Head Bartender Giulia Cuccurullo and Bar Manager Lorenza Pezzetta, along with the whole Artesian team, the programme aims to create a hub for the industry’s most inspirational and creative minds to connect, exchange ideas and foster innovation together.

The first Artesian Atelier will take place on 17 and 18 July in collaboration with Barcelona’s Paradiso, which was ranked number 3 in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2021. The session, which will take place with the support of Campari Group UK, will see a limited-edition menu presented to the public on 18 July, featuring two cocktails from the latest Paradiso menu, two cocktails from Artesian’s recently launched Duality menu, and one unique creation that will have been developed during the previous day’s workshop.

“Innovation and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do at Artesian, and the Atelier programme is the perfect opportunity to champion and advance these values with our friends from both the London and the international bar scene,” said Giulia Cuccurullo. “The creative process will be the subject of the first Artesian Atelier workshop, and there is no bar more suited to exploring this theme with than Paradiso. When working together with inspiring minds from around the world, the opportunities to learn and grow as a community are endless and we cannot wait to see what the outcomes of the Artesian Atelier programme will be.”

Further Artesian Atelier sessions and global bar participants will be revealed in the coming months.
