Atilla Iskifoglu
Award Winning Flair Bartender

In the world of Flair Bartending few have the ability to excite, amaze, and inspire like 4-time European Champion Atilla Iskifoglu. The world-famous flair bartender has won competitions across the globe including the Las Vegas World’s Greatest Bartenders competition. In 2009, he helped bring flair bartending to the mainstream as he wowed the crowds, judges, and viewers at home during a successful run on Britain’s Got Talent.

 Also known as The Bar Hypnotist, he has been known to entertain at legendary venues such as Rock & Rita’s in Las Vegas. This knowledge and passion has led Atilla to create a new style of bartending known as ‘mixology and flair,’ breaking down the barriers that usually exist between mixology and flair bartending.

 As well as honing and perfecting his own skills, Atilla also passes on his experience by training bartenders to work in luxury 5-star hotels and judging in bartending competitions.
