Manhattan Cocktail Classic is gearing up

09 Apr

NEW YORK — Dresses are being purchased and suits pressed as drinks fans get ready for the 4th annual Manhattan Cocktail Classic.

The decentralized program will offer more than 100 events in celebration of cocktails and culture from Friday, May 11, through Tuesday, May 15, at various venues throughout the five boroughs.

The term “various venues” certainly applies. Among scheduled sites are bars, art galleries, restaurants, theater, museums, libraries and many others.

The event is run by Lesley Townsend and is not affiliated with any suppliers, distributors, media channels, or other entities.

The opening night gala once again will take place at the main branch of The New York Public Library and the five-day Industry Invitational will take place across the street at the Andaz 5th Avenue Hotel.

The events run the gamut from educational to experiential, such as the light show shown above. Ticket prices vary depending on the specific event. The Gala will be $150; others will range from $25 to $150. They are available exclusively online.
