Evelyn Chick | Toronto Cocktail Conference

Evelyn’s career in hospitality started in Vancouver and quickly got recognition in the Canadian bartending scene with her unique approach to flavours. Throughout the years she has accumulated pedigrees such as : BarSmarts certification, WSET, Certified Specialist of Spirits, while finding success in multiple national & international cocktail competitions, including a win at the Global Beefeater MIXLDN championships in 2015; representing Canada against 31 other countries. She was given the opportunity to travel the world promoting Canadian cocktail culture. She runs the bar program at PrettyUgly, a high volume cocktail bar in Toronto.  Drawing from her experiences in leadership, she is an advocate for building a solid, inclusive and integrated bar community within the Canadian market. A few years ago, she took over as the Canadian coordinator of Speed Rack, an all female charity speed bartending competition. Alongside  Christina Veira, they hope to build a platform in which female bartenders can showcase their skills in a male dominated industry, while simultaneously raising funds for breast cancer research and education. She has taken on the project as co-curator of the Bar & Beverage Pavillon for Restaurants Canada Show 2019, building dynamic, forward thinking educational programming for the restaurants industry. She is thrilled to be involved with our industry’s rapid growth.
