Events & Tickets
While there are still a few months between you (and your liver) and this year's spirited festivities, it's never too early to get excited. And for those of you yet unacquainted with our merry little festival, here's a glimpse of what's in store (and how you can get involved in its creation):
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.Running parallel to all these fabulous ticketed events is a separate trade conference called the Industry Invitational. The programming of the Invitational is geared specifically towards hospitality industry professionals, and consists of TED-style talks, tastings, panels, competitions, networking opportunities, and more.
We adhere to a "crowd-sourcing" approach to programming our festival. With very few exceptions, virtually all of the events and activities are conceptualized and organized independently by brands, bartenders, and/or anyone else with a vision and a desire to get in on the action - so if you're itching to get involved in the 2014 festivities, please do drop us a line.
