Raising the Bar is a New York based initiative aimed at spreading knowledge and shaking the city’s nightlife culture. By gathering 50 top university professors to lecture in 50 bars throughout Manhattan over the course of one night, Raising the Bar delivers quality content to more than 5,000 people. Let’s talk about something different; let’s raise the bar.
