Join us for a World-Wide Celebration!

World Cocktail Day

World Cocktail Day was established to celebrate the rich history of the cocktail and recognize the craftsmanship and skill of the bartenders who have been mixing them for over 200 years.

Celebrating WCD (May 8 - 13th) is a great way to bring attention to your venue and support the Museum of the American Cocktail, while paying tribute to the rich culinary and historical tradition of the cocktail .

Those venues that hold celebrations and highlight some of our brand sponsors, provide valuable support to the Museum by promoting our sponsor brands who make the Museum of the American Cocktail possible: .

Please structure your event so that public transportation is easily available and actively encouraged to your guests. We hope too, that you will encourage your guests to become members of the Museum.

If you wish to organize a WCD celebration at your bar:

  • Contact us and provide details: your contact info, bar location, and special features. All participating bars will be listed on the MOTAC website along with event details and a link to your website.
  • List which MOTAC brand sponsors you will be featuring. We will notify the brand ambassadors and see whether they can help support your event in any way.
