Experience all benefits spring and summer have to offer and have the time of your life. Come to Rabac and have a nice walk along the promenade right by the sea, followed by relaxing moments spent listening to music and enjoying light summer breeze at a terrace of one of our seaside bars. All of you who enjoy sipping their drinks right by the sea will love the Plaza bistro and its spacious terrace, the Tropic lounge bar with its wide range of cocktails and the Exotic snack offering a beautiful view of the sea, where our top bartenders, winners of various awards, will take you on an adventure spiced with tasteful and attractive cocktails.
The 18th VIGOR BARMEN CUP State Bartender Championship in preparing cocktails was held on 11 May 2012 at the Zagreb Fair (Zagrebacki velesajam). The total of 26 bartenders participated in the competition, trying to impress the jury of experts with their inventions and performance. The team from our Valamar Allegro Hotel in Rabac gave a great performance in the classical cocktail style. Dragana Frankovic, the hotel’s restaurant manager, came in third with her ”Just for You Edi”, a red cocktail with a yellow calla lily decoration, and the hotel’s bar manager Roberto Zuliani won the best professional cocktail award.
Roberto and Dragana entered the State Championship after their participation in the 19th Regional Bartender Competition for the Primorje-Gorski kotar and the Istrian Counties, held in Opatija on 4 May. Fourteen bartenders entered the competition and competed in who would create and mix the best long drink. Roberto won the first place with his ”Pink Refreshment”, and Dragana won the third place with her ”Riviera” long drink.
