Mindful Hospitality Group looks to bring a thoughtful and professional touch to how bar education and events are ignited and handled. Established in 2019, by Cecil Usher & Cat Cannon, MHG brought their collective experience within the service industry as well as their cultivated relationships to be at your disposal. Our goal is to provide dynamic experiences that elevate our community.


We’re passionate about the work we do and finding creative outlets to express our love. We’ve created as well as organized a variety of events including cocktail competitions, cocktail classes and pop-ups. We’ve helped educate and train both individuals and teams in an effort to help grow our city and industry. We’ve designed bar programs, back bars, bar menus and everything in between when it comes to opening a bar. Now we want to bring our passion and experience to others and help foster the next wave of mindful hospitality in an effort to augment this industry we love.
