SHAKING THINGS UP AT BOK CENTER WITH NEW COPPER STILLS BAR

(Tulsa, Okla.) June 16, 2015 – The SMG-managed BOK Center has re-branded a lower level bar into a brand new premium cocktail experience for fans. SAVOR… with the help of Alchemy Consulting worked together to bring Copper Stills, a new bar concept, to BOK Center.

The concept behind Copper Stills is simple. Cocktails are prepared made to order by skilled bartenders using top-shelf spirits, fresh juices and ingredients along with custom syrups. 10 bartenders were extensively trained by an Alchemy consultant in everything from mixology to bar operations to proper presentation of a beverage. Some cocktails on the menu include the Ivy Gimlet, the Honeysuckle and the Presbyterian.

“Alchemy Consulting is proud to help launch a new level of experience for guests attending events at BOK Center. With the craft cocktail movement reaching markets big and small, there’s never been a better time to reach such a captive audience,” said Alchemy Consulting Partner Joaquin Simo. “The goal is to bring all the quality and care of a craft cocktail bar to the convenience of your local arena. Just as beer and food options have grown more sophisticated due to popular demand, we are committed to bringing the best cocktail options to thousands of guests at a time.”

Alchemy Consulting is a company based on increasing the profitability of bars and restaurants through innovative cocktail and ergonomic bar design. The members of Alchemy Consulting believe strongly that the bar should be considered of equal importance as the kitchen and should be managed accordingly. Freshness of ingredients, quality control and consistency of recipes are identifiable traits of an Alchemy Consulting beverage program. 

“We have identified that customers are becoming increasingly more savvy and like to enjoy a hand crafted cocktail while attending an event at BOK Center,” said BOK Center General Manager Jeff Nickler. “We’re pleased to bring this premium cocktail experience to our guests and to have the opportunity to cater to the crowd that enjoys fresh ingredients and craft cocktails. Copper Stills is an excellent addition to our already wide variety of food and beverage offerings by SAVOR… in the venue. It’s something we also hope to implement at Cox Business Center during future gala events.”
