The Grand Hotel Billia, the historic early 20th century hotel which is a part of the Saint-Vincent Resort & Casino complex, reopened on 13 December. To mark the occasion, the hotel staged a competition involving the best barmen in Italy.

To mark the opening, the Grand Hotel Billia, an icon of hospitality and bartending since the very beginning on a national level (in the past it has hosted as many as 12 national and 4 international finals), hosted the 64th final of the national A.I.B.E.S Competition, an event organized by the Italian Association of Barmen and Supporters which, out of the 140 participating candidates, selected the two winners who will take part in the World final scheduled to be held in South Africa in 2014.  

Following in-depth renovation, the historic Valdostan hotel was returned to its former glory thanks to the skilful restoration of not only its stuccoes and period furnishings but also its legendary Hollywood-style staircase. The facility now also features a series of new rooms equipped with every modern comfort, the ultra-modern “Éve” beauty centre extending over a surface area of 1,700 square metres and two auteur restaurants, the 1908 and La Grande Vue.

During the event, a special brand new cocktail was created for the Grand Hotel Billia and the 150th anniversary of Martini & Rossi was also celebrated with the brands and exhibitors of the food&beverage industy present at the resort. Six master classes on the theme of bartending, organized by the association, were held at the Billia Convention Centre.
