Nicknamed the “Nero” of Bonavida, Nerses Makhdoumian recently won the Beirut City Of Life Bartending Competition by Taste & Flavors magazine, which took place on December 20 at Train Station, Beirut. We sat down with the champion to discuss this achievement and his aspirations.

What did winning the Beirut City of Life Bartending Competition mean to you?
Winning the competition proved to me that in Lebanon, no matter what happens, the hospitality and nightlife industry will always prosper and never cease to encourage others to grow and reach new heights.

In your opinion, what are the latest bartending trends?
The latest trend is using out-of-the box combinations of local ingredients and spirits to create innovative drinks that have a wow factor.

What are your future plans?
I am hoping to open my own place where spirits are made in-house and creative drinks are served in a great ambience.
