To help these friendly ghost of hospitality and to make the visible I am starting a two step photo project.
Part I: Portrait series of ghost bars and their kind ghosts
The photos are capturing a critical moment of fragility. For many it is existential. They sacrifice a lot to ensure our well being. The ones I know are all fighters and don't complain ... but that is no reason to ignore their misery and let them fade. If they go it will hurt us too. We need these magical places of hospitality where we are welcomed with a smile and where we bond as human beings. Let's keep these ghosts alive.
Part II: The magic ghost menu
At the moment these spiritual creatures are not allowed to enter our world but they still have all their alchemistic talents to brighten our daily pandemic boredom. So I wondered how cocktail bars could generate some income and how I could help. The idea is to create personal cocktail creations that carries your name. Maybe you dreamt too of having your own signature cocktail recipe.
So now you can support our local bar by commissioning a bespoke cocktail. It will be tailored to your preferences and tastes. It can spring from your favorite spirit, a movie that you love or just a line of poetry.
Together with your favorite bar we will capture your creation in a stunning photo which will enter the social media hall of fame on our „Magic Ghost Menu“. This support has to have some weight to be helpful. It costs 500$ ... that is a lot and not many of us can afford it … but the ones who can will really support their home bar AND get something that money can not buy. The money goes straight to the bar.
