"What a pleasure it is to have the LAB right in downtown Phoenix! It’s great to have a neutral space with all of my R&D needs, all in one inspiring place!  I’m looking forward to many more projects, presentations and training initiatives with our bartenders there!"

"The LAB has already helped our teams out West in just the short time it has been up and running.  The constant exposure of our products to Beverage Directors, Bartenders, Bar Managers and Supplier Partners on site has been a huge asset.  Anyone that walks into the LAB not familiar with Monin, walks out with knowledge and hands on experience that leads to more outside opportunities and brand awareness.  With live presentations and development becoming more demanding in our industry, this R&D space offers a convenient/neutral location only 5 minutes from Phoenix airport, access to innovative equipment, new glassware and bar tools.  Sitting in a friendly neighborhood area, it is inviting, warm, spacious and also walking distance to top bars and restaurants in the area to check on local innovation. 

It is also worth noting that MONIN loves being a part of this non-profit initiative that helps and nurtures the next generation of bartenders."
