Artur’s enthusiasm for bartending started while attending University in Lodz, Poland. He began working in bars and clubs within the Lodz City area in 2002. At first it was only a way to pay his school expenses but he quickly realised that Bartending was his life’s passion. It soon became apparent that he had natural talent and he consequently entered himself into national and international competitions. Since 2004 he has competed with success in different Flair Bartending and Mixology competitions in Portugal, Poland, USA and England. In 2006 he founded ProgressBar which he then transferred to Portugal when he emigrated in 2008. Today he is the CEO of ProgressBarEvents, an author of the ‘Creative Cocktails’ book series and is continuing his passion for bartending, cocktails and flair every day.
