We had a great time at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic last year that we definitely can’t wait for this year’s week-long cocktail festivities.

The opening night gala at the New York Public Library is already sold out, BUT there are still tons of other great seminars, tastings, and workshops to choose from!  You’ll get to experience intimate lessons and learn from the pros all about the art of mixing.

Sessions are held at the Astor Center and at some of NYC’s favorite restaurant and bar hotspots like Little Branch, Red Rooster, The Box, Cinefuegos, Painkiller, PDT, The Standard, Lani Kai, Death & Co., Employees Only, Pegu Club, and so many more!

Take a look at the extensive schedule that runs from May 13th through the 17th.


The Manhattan Cocktail Classic

Part festival, part fête, part conference, part cocktail party – the Manhattan Cocktail Classic is an annual celebration of the myriad points of intersection between cocktails and culture. With over one hundred events spread across five days and five boroughs, the Manhattan Cocktail Classic offers a vast array of unique experiences to enthusiasts and professionals alike, expanding the very definition of what constitutes a “cocktail event.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the Classic and are looking to get your bearings, start by taking a spin through the FAQ. From there, you may want to peruse some of the fabulous news coverage, or (if you’re not so keen on reading) flip through some photos from last year’s festival.
