This event has already happened

Started by Bryan Townsend of The 86 Co., the Ultimate Cocktail Experience is an annual showcase featuring the best bartenders from across the country, as they provide attendees with delicious craft cocktails at Dallas’ Klyde Warren Park. This year’s event will include six unique bar concepts, each representing a different part of the world, and each tasked with producing a menu of innovative drinks, including one classic cocktail and one non-alcoholic option. And to accompany those drinks, food trucks will be on site serving a variety of dishes.

Bars, captains and featured classic cocktails have been selected and are as follows:
Mexico City: Brad Hensarling & Megan McClinton, The Usual (Margarita)
London: Omar Yeefoon, Shoals (Gin and Tonic)
New Orleans: Keisha Cooper, Shoals (Sazerac)
Hong Kong: Robbie Call, Filament (Rob Roy)
Casablanca: Andrew Stofko, Hot Joy (Mule)
Havana: Ravinder Singh, Rapscallion (Daiquiri)

Joining the local barkeeps will be other talented bartenders from around the country, and the world, including: Ash Hauserman of Blacktail in NY, which recently won Best New American Cocktail Bar at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards, and Iain Griffiths from London’s Dandelyan, which was named Best International Hotel Bar and Best Cocktail Bar in the World. Joining these two will be Ezra Star from award-winning Drink (Boston) and Mitch Bushell, LA bartender formerly of Melbourne’s internationally renowned Black Pearl.

General admission: $65 ($80 at the door). 21 & up only. No children or pets permitted.
