Ladies and gents, it’s one of the year’s best events each and every year.

Taking over NYC in just 2 very short months is the 2014 Manhattan Cocktail Classic. From Friday, May 9th through Tuesday, May 13th, choose from the list of almost one hundred events taking place throughout the city that celebrate liquor and cocktailing.

Events range from educational demonstrations, seminars, and tastings, to fine dining and brunches, all from exceptional bars and restaurants throughout our great city. Prices and crowds vary, so be sure to read through them all!

You can’t go wrong with the now-legendary Opening Night Gala that takes place each year at the magnificent New York Public Library. Take a look at our experience from last year. Tickets for the gala WILL sell out, and you will have a severe case of #FOMO if you don’t act fast and snag tickets ASAP.

Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, March 14th at noon. Seriously, act fast.

To keep up to date on all #MCC2014 news and events, be sure sign up for their mailing list, follow them on Facebook or Twitter, and check back in soon right here on Socially Superlative for our recommended events.



2014 Manhattan Cocktail Classic

May 9th – May 13th, 2014

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 nearly one hundred events spread across five days and four boroughs, and a two-day trade conference to boot – 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”.

The fifth annual Manhattan Cocktail Classic will be taking place May 9-13, 2014 and will once again serve up nearly 100 individually ticketed events across the five days of festivities: parties, pairings, dinners, dances, workshops, lectures, tiki-tours, bar crawls – and of course, the now-legendary opening night Gala at The New York Public Library.

These events take place all across New York City (yes, not just in the borough of Manhattan, lest the name imply otherwise…) Ticket prices vary by event, but typically range from $25 to $395.

Enthusiasts, professionals, and people who are neither enthusiastic nor professional but who enjoy a proper drink now and again are all welcome to attend the festival. For enthusiasts, there are a long list of fabulous ticketed seminars, tastings, parties, and pairings.
