    The granite city bar, which opened in 2009, is competing against 15 cocktail bars from around the world in the four-day competition, which ends today (March 3). Judges will score bars on a range of criteria, including drinks menu, bar set up, the quality of service and “how they have created a positive drinking atmosphere”.
