Join Las Vegas Rebel beverage professionals as they teach you all about your favorite wines, beers, and spirits!

For our tenth installment we would like to welcome Tim Haughinberry, Founder, Back Bar USA. Tim will be joining us live from Mexico for this event and in keeping with the theme of the region, will show us how to make the classic Paloma. In addition to this, with the holidays right around the corner, Tim will also teach us how to make two classic holiday themed cocktails!

An experienced spirits and hospitality professional, Tim, founded Back Bar USA to bring hospitality and beverage companies together via partnerships to leverage marketing and exposure through innovative promotions and events. A Las Vegas resident of more than 30 years, Tim is actively involved in the local community, most notably through support of LGBTQ initiatives and the William F. Harrah College of Hospitality at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Tim’s public speaking credits include engagements at UNLV, Nightclub & Bar’s annual convention and other events covering topics such as hospitality, spirits and education.

Tim is ambitious and shows no signs of losing momentum as he continues to open new venues and lead hugely successful events with Back Bar USA including “For the Love of Cocktails,” which brought internationally-renowned mixologists from around the world to Las Vegas for a comprehensive cocktail festival for five consecutive years.
