The Cocktail Society, part of the 2017 Scottsdale Culinary Festival Events, will take place Friday, April 7, 2017, 7pm – 11pm at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
The Cocktail Society will feature exclusive libation experiences including aerial bartenders dropping down from the ceiling for service, signature cocktails created especially for the event by Rattle + Rum, and samples from 3 Amigos Tequila and Roger Clyne’s Mexican Moonshine Tequila.
More of a beer fan? Stella Artois will be pouring from their airstream trailer and handing out complimentary branded chalices. Love a good mule? Head upstairs and get creative with Tito’s Handmade Vodka’s “Make your own Mule” bar. Fancy a good vino? Sand-Reckoner Vineyards and Caduceus Cellars will be onsite pouring some of their delicious wines. Regardless of your boozy preferences, make sure to join a worldwide toast celebrating Tito’s Handmade Vodka’s 20th Anniversary at 9:30pm.
To balance out all of the libations, enjoy an abundance of electrifying entertainment including a pair of dueling DJ’s from Desert House Productions, a performance by singer Saydi Driggers, shadow dancers, living art and Urban Electra – Arizona’s premier electric string quartet performing everything from rock, pop, club music, and cutting edge electronic music.
Let your eyes and imagination sore with projection mapping – a video technology that projects shapes, graphics and animation on 3D objects, creating a futuristic digital experience. Then, take a group photo or a pimped-out selfie in a custom photo booth aboard Stella the Airstream. Head to Stage 2 to experience a feast for your senses with SensMood and Couple of Bartenders as they conduct scent and cocktail pairing demos.
If you need a break from the hustle and bustle, visit the Cigar Lounge sponsored by Your Premium Cigar Bar, complete with bourbon and beer pairings.
Not ready for the party to end? Shade Lounge at the W Scottsdale will be hosting the official after party poolside on the rooftop.
Presale tickets are $85 and $100 the day of the event. Tickets include complimentary cocktails and unlimited food, live music and entertainment.
