2018 Arizona Cocktail Weekend
Published By admin on 3 months ago

Arizona’s salute to spirits & cocktail culture returns this February 17 – 19, 2018 with all-new events and venues, and a new location in Downtown Phoenix. Now known as the 2018 Arizona Cocktail WeekEnd, this seventh annual event is shaking up and serving 72-hours of fun in the Arizona sun, while the rest of the nation is still shivering through the dregs of winter. And speaking of Arizona’s amazing winter weather, the move to Downtown Phoenix will create a more walk-able, pedestrian-friendly event lineup, while showcasing the area’s red-hot cocktail scene and exciting new venues.

The 2018 Arizona Cocktail WeekEnd kicks off on Saturday, February 17 with an all-new opening night party named “The Cocktail Jam”. Hosted at Downtown’s hottest new music hall, The Van BurenThe Cocktail Jam will pair trending spirit brands, amazingly crafted cocktails with live music to create a one of kind experience in the Valley. Then on Sunday, February 18, it’s the return of Top Bars showcasing pop-up versions of renowned bars from around the state, country and across the globe, all in one location. Now hosted at historic warehouse turned hip event venue, The Croft, previous Top Bars participants include iconic imports: The Manhattan Bar (Singapore), The Savoy, Portobello Star and Callooh Callay (London), plus The Dead Rabbit and Employees Only (NYC), Herbs & Rye (Las Vegas), Whitechapel (San Francisco), and our own Bitter & Twisted and UnderTow, to name just a few.

 

Furthermore, top lounges, bars and restaurants across downtown will be hosting AZCW events, dinners and exclusive cocktail tastings. The list of confirmed participating venues is below, with additional venue and AZCW events information to be announced as those details become available.
