Press Play & Evolve.

Real Talk. Real Solutions.

November 2020-April 2021 the industry is coming together. 
Starting in November, Bar & Restaurant will travel the country to talk to expert industry operators who are beating the shut-down odds while battling things like irate guests, bad press, and ineffective politicians.
Evolve is for the bar & restaurant community, no matter if your venue is shut down, closed for the winter, or open at 20% capacity. Hear ideas about where the industry is going, discuss what is and is not working, and learn how it is still possible to hold onto your dream and provide hospitality services. Evolve is complimentary for Owners & Operators in the bar, restaurant and hospitality industry.
