The Manhattan Cocktail Classic, New York’s peerless multi-day celebration of cocktails and culture, today announces the fifth anniversary edition of the festival that will take place on May 9-13, 2014. The five-day festival will once again include the famed opening night Gala at The New York Public Library, dozens upon dozens of spirited events throughout the city and top-flight educational seminars. Tickets will go on sale on March 14 at 12 noon EDT via the Classic’s website, www.manhattancocktailclassic.com.
“We’ve been incredibly lucky to enjoy such amazing momentum,” says Lesley Townsend Duval, Founder and Executive Director, Manhattan Cocktail Classic. “But I think a lot of that rests on the fact that most of the festival is crowd-sourced: brands, bartenders, bars, restaurants the folks who are on the front lines of igniting libations trends produce most of the annual programming, so I’d say this is very much a festival for cocktail enthusiasts by cocktail enthusiasts. It’s an approach that keeps the festival fresh and relevant year after year, and keeps our faithful followers thirsty for more.”
