About the Manhattan Cocktail Classic
Founded by Lesley Townsend Duval in 2009, the Manhattan Cocktail Classic is part festival, part fête, part conference and part cocktail party. The annual celebration offers a myriad of events spread across five days and four boroughs, and a two-day trade conference to boot.
Recently the Manhattan Cocktail Classic has evolved into a full-time production run by seasoned cocktail veterans, spirit industry experts and event professionals.
