Inspired by the largest cocktail convention in the United States which pulls 50 of our local bar staff to New Orleans for a week at the Tales of the Cocktail, the North Texas Bartender’s Guild has announced that they will be putting on a four day event starting June 14th. Craft Cocktails Texas will host bartenders from across Texas and feature mixing competitions, tastings, dinners, instructive classes, tours and festival at Main Street Gardens downtown with bands and food vendors.
Most of the events will take place at the Stoneleigh Hotel using many of the available meeting rooms and ballroom. The event is open to the public and ticket information will be available April first when their website goes live. People that are interested will be able to buy a ticket to cover the majority of events, Also separate cocktail dinners at various participating restaurants will not be covered under the main event ticketing.
Organizers are Nico Ponce (Chesterfield) and Brian McCullough (Standard Pour).
For those with casual cocktail interest you may buy single event tickets. We will have more information as information is released. The event benefit’s the American Heart Association. This is going to be huge.
