Cocktail Week is coming to Seattle March 3rd through March 10th. The week-long celebration of Seattle’s cocktail scene will culminate with Cocktail District on March 9th, an educational showdown on all things liquors and cocktails.
During Cocktail Week, over 60 bars and top liquor brands will be hosting master classes, seminars, pop ups, brunches, bar takeovers, competitions, and more. Check out the full list of participating locations here.
Taking place on March 9th, the biggest event of the week, Cocktail District, will offer an immersive cocktail experience like none other. Featuring over 100 spirits from the world’s best distilleries, guests can enjoy either a spirit tasting or a mini cocktail at one of the eight different tasting areas. Tasting areas include, a Tiki Village, Gin Garden, Whiskey Woods and a Carnival Floor with a variety of activities for guests to enjoy. Jack Daniels will be offering free haircuts at their pop-up barbershop, and a vibrant food truck selection will be available for guests outside on Pier 66.
In addition to tastings, Cocktail District will have demos and educational sessions ranging from Scotch and chocolate tastings to showcasing the fascinating history of Kentucky Bourbon. The event will also serve as a benefit for The World is Fun, a Seattle-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on a mission to get Seattleites actively involved in giving back to their community.
“Not only does Seattle get a vibrant and fun event to attend and learn from, but proceeds from the event are going directly back to the community,” says Rachel Ullstrom, Communications Director with The World is Fun. “The World is Fun enjoys showing Seattleites that there are many ways to give back outside of a traditional fundraiser and have fun while doing so.”
