Some of Atlanta’s best LGBTQ bartenders faced off on Thursday to find out who came up with the best concoction. 

The Bar Wars event was a fundraiser for the 29th Annual AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run. 

AID Atlanta hosted its 1st Annual Talent Competition after the cocktail showdown.

This year’s AIDS Walk is Sept. 29 in Piedmont Park.
