Tales of the Cocktail 2019
July 16, 2019 @ 12:00 am - July 21, 2019 @ 5:00 am
Founded in 2002, Tales of the Cocktail® has grown from an annual walking tour of historic New Orleans cocktail bars, into the world’s premier cocktail festival. Each year the international bar and spirits industry is welcomed to New Orleans for a week of seminars, tastings, networking and special events. With hundreds of opportunities developed specifically for bartenders, distillers and other bar and spirits professionals, Tales of the Cocktail is the industry’s annual meeting place for the exchanging of new ideas, products and techniques. In addition, Tales of the Cocktail Foundation also produces Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour; supports the Cocktail Apprentice Program, an exclusive mentorship program for up-and-coming bartenders; manages the Tales 365 membership program; distributes industry focused grants; curates programming which addresses the serious issues our industry faces on a regular basis within its initiative Beyond the Bar; celebrates the The Dame Hall of Fame®, a collection of women who have made unique and lasting contributions to the global hospitality industry; and publishes bartender-focused educational content year-round on TalesoftheCocktail.org.
