Voodoo team works magic for bartender health event


THE team at Edinburgh bar The Voodoo Rooms is hosting a special event this Sunday (April 8) designed to promote health and wellness to those working in the hospitality industry.

Kicking off at 10.30am, the event is being run in conjunction with Healthy Hospo – an initiative set up by former bartender Tim Etherington-Judge to promote healthier lifestyles for bar staff – and London bar Three Sheets.

The day-long event will feature a host of activities, including a Healthy Hospo seminar in The Voodoo Rooms’ ballroom hosted by Etherington-Judge, which will cover mental health, sleep, nutrition and avoiding back pain; an hour-long yoga session with Camille Ralph Vidal; and a ‘gong bath’ therapy session hosted by gin brand Hendrick’s.

Everyone attending the event will get a wristband to access Three Sheets’ takeover of The Voodoo Rooms’ American Bar from 9pm on Sunday night.

Bar manager Lachlan Rooney said: “Tickets will be around a fiver for each session and every penny of that, along with the take from the bar takeover, will be donated to Healthy Hospo to go towards future educational events for the Edinburgh bar scene.”
