Latinx Industry Night

Latinx Industry Night, Volume 4 at Bolo

Latinx Industry Night at Bolo celebrates Philadelphia’s Latinx bartending talent and culture during National Hispanic Heritage Month.

As the vibrant city of Philadelphia gears up to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, Bolo, the Latin American dining room and rum bar nestled in Rittenhouse Square, is all set to host the fourth installment of the highly acclaimed Latinx Industry Night series. This eagerly awaited event, co-hosted by journalist Alisha Miranda, promises to be a vibrant celebration of Philadelphia’s Latinx bartending talent and rich cultural heritage.

Latinx Industry Night, curated by Alisha Miranda, shines a spotlight on the city’s leading Latina/o bartenders. This unique event, which made its debut in October 2022, was born out of Miranda’s passion for gathering Philadelphia’s top Hispanic and Latino/a bar talent for a one-night extravaganza.

Scheduled for Monday, October 2, Latinx Industry Night will kick off with a VIP, invite-only portion at 7:00 pm, followed by the general public’s access from 8:30 pm until late night. As part of this grand celebration, four of Philadelphia’s pioneering Caribbean and South American mixologists will take center stage at Bolo, each crafting an exclusive craft cocktail inspired by their culture and heritage.

The featured bartenders include Tony Jimenez (Puerto Rico) from Post Haste, and 1 Tippling Place, David Rodriguez (Colombia) from Charlie was a sinner., Adrienne Gomez-Saddler (Colombia) from Jean-Georges Philadelphia, Four Seasons, and Alexander Lebron (Colombia & Puerto Rico) from Vintage Wine Bar.

Attendees can look forward to an enticing assortment of libations, including Medalla, Puerto Rico’s beloved beer, as well as Malta-inspired Bolo Light and Bolo Dark ales, custom crafted by Philadelphia’s My Local Brew Works. There will also be an array of no-proof cocktails to tantalize your taste buds. Chef Fuentes and his team at Bolo have curated a special menu of pay-as-you-go light bites that perfectly complement the occasion.
