Mari Kamata, one of Japan’s top bartenders visits The Peninsula Manila and gets behind the bar at The Salon de Ning for a 2 day show of talent and skill. Join her Mixology Class on November 24 & 25, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
Each room at Salon de Ning offers a different experience and the best one will depend on your mood. I personally enjoyed the library / study setup the most, as my laid-back personality acclaims to its cozy look and feel; comfy couch and antique cabinets.
Mari Kamata’s expertise is reflected in the numerous awards she has collected over the last 20 years of bartending, including the 2009 “Diageo World Class Cocktail Competition” in London, the 2013 “Gin Connoisseur Program” in France, a finalist spot at the “007 Belvedere Challenge 2015” in Sydney, and the top prize in the 2016 “Seven Star Train Cocktail Recipe Competition” in Japan.
Mari Kamata’s proficiency in the classics give her a solid foundation for creativity and adaptability to cater to any drink a customer may request.
