    It's back! The sake cocktail contest we inaugurated in 2023 returns on Monday, April 15!

    Come watch 5 finalists create and present their cocktail creations featuring Japanese sake. Your ticket gets you entry to the exclusive contest room with an up-close and personal view of the cocktail creation and narration, plus the judging, and one complimentary drink (tips not included - please be generous to the staff).


    This ticketed event is spectator (and cheering) only, but if you are a bartender, mixologist, artist-in-spirits, or what have you and want to submit a cocktail for consideration to be one of the five finalists, see the Official Rules and Guidelines (the guidelines doc has links to the submission form).
