The Manhattan Cocktail Classic is regarded as the premier spirits arena, celebrating the creation of cocktails and the master innovators behind them. It is also a home for the epicurean culture that nurtures and supports brands, leading chefs and the people who work diligently in the industry.

Please join us at The Gala as we celebrate the official opening of the 2017 Manhattan Cocktail Classic!

In keeping with this year’s theme of celebrating History and Innovation, the Festival opens with a sophisticated and spectacular black-tie cocktail reception right in the heart of New York City’s Central Park, at the landmark Loeb Boathouse, a classic and timeless institution in it’s own right.  With floor to ceiling windows framing the breathtaking lakeside view, further accentuated by a setting sun, it is the perfect backdrop for a night on the town.
