Talking booze and bartending with Chris Hysted-Adams of Black Pearl Bar

Posted by Glennise Pinili on Feb 28, 2018 8:44:00 AM

Black Pearl Bar for many Melburnians is an institution, and it's easy to see why. The 15-year-old Fitzroy bar has collected plenty of awards including: International Cocktail Bar (2017 Spirited Awards), Best Bar in Australia (2017 World’s 50 Best Bars Awards), and Best Cocktail List award (2016 at Australian Liquor Industry Awards), to name a few. 

However despite the accolades, the bar remains a cool, modest and casual place for locals to kick back and have a few drinks, which General Manager, Chris Hysted-Adams believes is what makes Black Pearl Bar a successful one. 

Former Bartender of the Year (2009; Bartender Magazine Australian Awards), Chris Hysted-Adams ventured from the corporate world to bartender life and hasn't looked back since. 

We chatted to him about the importance of your team, bartending tips and how to stay relevant as a hospitality business. Here's his story.

New: Typsy launches ‘Buy one Give one’ to support hospitality social enterprises

Posted by Glennise Pinili on Jan 30, 2018 8:09:00 AM

When we think about the hospitality industry, what often comes to mind is the food, cocktails, hotels, bars and restaurants. But behind all that, what is hospitality, really?

Look up its definition and you’re reminded that hospitality is “the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors or strangers”.

Essentially, it’s the people who are at the root of the hospitality industry. It’s built on kindness, being hospitable to others and showing compassion. Without the people, the industry doesn’t exist.

Here at Typsy, we want to help fuel that and be that kind stranger who smiles at you, or the person who helps you when you need a hand. That’s why we’re supporting hospitality social enterprises with Buy one Give one.
