    • Place: The Foundry Suites, 1738 Elmwood Avenue
    • Tickets: Early Bird General Admission - $40 / General Admission - $45 / VIP - $60

Ten of Western New York’s best bars and restaurants competing to see who makes the best craft cocktails in town.The annual event is put on by with an all-new presenting sponsor, Compeer of WNY . The coveted “Buffalo’s Best Cocktail” award will be up for grabs along with other awards and bragging rights - all taste tested and voted on by attendees.

Last year Panorama on Seven swept the event across all three categories, so this year bars willbe bringing their A-game as they shake, muddle, and stir their way to the crown. Both general admission and VIP tickets are on sale now until November 5, with a special limited amount of discounted Early Bird tickets also available until they sell out.

NEW THIS YEAR: The 2017 Buffalo Cocktail Classic will celebrate both classic and creative cocktails with competing bars and restaurants having the option to select from Tommyrotter Distillery’s award-winning vodka, gin, or whiskey. After tasting each of the ten participating bars’ craft cocktails, attendees will vote using a good old-fashioned voting system rather than last year’s digital voting.
