TGI Fridays has crowned Hiroyuki “Mark” Yamada of Tokyo the World’s Greatest Bartender at the 22nd annual World Bartender Championship (WBC) in Dallas. It was announced Friday, March 8.

Yamada’s flawless mixology, precision and speed, coupled with his winning personality behind the bar, wowed a panel of industry expert judges and helped him secure the title of World’s Greatest Bartender, said TGI Fridays.

More than 10,000 bartenders from the almost one thousand TGI Fridays around the world competed in a series of local and regional events leading up to the final showdown, which pitted ten finalists against one another competing for the “coveted” crown.

Each bartender first exhibited product, ingredient and recipe expertise through a variety of mixology knowledge tests.  The competition culminated in a freestyle bartending showcase, where a panel of judges assessed each finalist’s ability to make innovative drinks while displaying incredible speed and exciting flair.
