Artesian launches Artesian Atelier

Artesian team launch global workshop programme and guest bar series connecting the most creative minds from the bar community

First event sees Artesian invite Barcelona’s Paradiso to London on 17 and 18 July, in collaboration with Campari Group UK

Award-winning London bar, Artesian, will launch Artesian Atelier this July. Artesian Atelier is a first-of-its-kind workshop and guest bar series that will champion collaboration and imaginative mixology. 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.

Each Artesian Atelier event will see a leading bar team from the global cocktail scene, alongside additional participants from London’s best bars, invited to take part in a private workshop in The Langham’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, a guest shift will take place in Artesian, with a menu showcasing the cocktail creation designed collaboratively between Artesian and the visiting bar, available to guests for one day only.

The first Artesian Atelier will take place on 17 and 18 July, in collaboration with Barcelona’s Paradiso, ranked no. 3 in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2021, and with the support of Campari Group UK. The Artesian team led by Giulia Cuccurullo and the Paradiso team led by Giacomo Giannotti will run a workshop on Sunday 17 July, with the input of just a handful of London’s other leading bartenders. On Monday 18 July, a limited-edition menu will then be presented to the public in Artesian, 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.

On the launch of Artesian Atelier, Giulia Cuccurullo, Head Bartender at Artesian, commented: “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. 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.”

Jono Mayes, National Trade & Bartender Advocacy Manager for Campari Group UK added: “In partnering with Artesian Atelier, Campari Group UK hopes to bring together individuals at the leading edge of the industry, to share in the journey of creating new drinks and drinking experiences. Connecting thought leaders from different cultures and perspectives is very much a shared goal – one that seeks to explore new ideas, to inspire bartenders and consumers alike. This is the start of an exciting new chapter in our relationship with the UK bartender community, and we’re excited for what is still to come.”

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

The Paradiso guest night at Artesian will take place on Monday 18 July from 7pm, showcasing two of the latest creations from the famed Barcelona bar, Volcano Negroni and Sea Heart, and two cocktails from Artesian’s new Duality menu, alongside their collaborative signature creation.
