Get your Gatsby on at The Manhattan Cocktail Classic, a multi-day celebration of cocktails and culture. Tickets just went on sale yesterday so get them while they’re available!
This will be the fourth year of the legendary event. A real highlight is the legendary opening night Gala at The New York Public Library. Libations enthusiasts flock from all over to this grand fete. The rest of the week’s events range from boozy brunches to spirited soirées, bar crawls to bus tours, pig roasts to punch parties; and a three-day trade conference for beverage industry professionals.
It’s worth attending the Opening Night Gala just to see the New York Public Library all decked out! This is one of the poshest event spaces in the city and it gets all glammed up for cocktail kings and queens! If you’re looking for something grand to do in New York City, this event is not to be missed.
And what goes better with thoughtful cocktails than fine cuisine? Le Bernardin’s Eric Ripert will be hosting a fabulous dinner, there will be a celebration of Grand Central Terminal’s 100th anniversary at The Campbell Apartment, featuring turn-of-the 20th century cocktails; a deliciously decadent afternoon pairing chocolates and cocktails; a Tiki safari; a bar crawl; a bus tour; countless seminars and hands-on workshops at some of NYC’s most heralded watering holes; and a pig roast (or three, for good measure).
One thing is certain, it will not be easy waking up for work after all this partying!
