As we inch closer to spring, there are a number of haute events slated to occur in New York City. On March 19th, cocktail aficionados can look forward to the Cocktail Magic, a celebration of the cocktail with illusions, beats and bites, tour. It will be the country’s first-ever craft cocktail tour taking place in Brooklyn.
From 10 p.m.-1 a.m. at Weylin B. Seymour’s, Cocktail Magic will spotlight craft cocktail wizardry and feature 10 of the most exciting local bars to be found in the city, such as Dead Rabbit, Death & Co, PDT, and Leyenda, as well as two nationally renowned heavyweights: Broken Shaker (Chicago/Miami) and Williams & Graham (Denver).
For the first-ever craft cocktail tour, award-winning production designer David Korins’ namesake company is collaborating with Superfly to transform the look of the space. Together they have created 12 custom designed bars and will be introducing unique design elements. In addition to a haute scene and delectable libations, the program will also feature pizza slices from legendary Brooklyn pizza Roberta’s as well as illusion entertainment from magicians Jon Armstrong, Matthew Holtzclaw, Noah Levine, and Francis Menotti, and a DJ set by Baio.
The entire lineup of local bars participating are:
Death & Co
End of the Century Bar
Mother of Pearl
Please Don’t Tell
Broken Shaker (Chicago)
Williams & Graham (Denver)
