Mix things up!

Presented by the Columbus Craft Cocktail Tour and the Bourbon Club of Central Ohio in partnership with Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph with Master of Ceremonies, Dino Tripodis.

The Columbus Cocktail Classic is a one-day spirited event highlighting the talented bartenders of Columbus, Ohio. You’ll have the opportunity to sample craft cocktails and tasty snacks from local vendors, attend educational seminars led by local experts and be a guest on a locally produced podcast. The grand finale of the event is the Culinary Cocktail Throwdown, a unique team competition pairing cocktails and small bites (tickets sold separately). We’ll have teams from Buckeye Bourbon House and The Great Southern Whiskey Bar.

Tickets sales will be online only through Saturday, September 7th at 5 pm. You must buy tickets in advance — there will be no sales at the doors. All sales are final.

The Columbus Cocktail Classic is a not-for-profit event with proceeds benefiting The Hardy Center and the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG), Columbus Chapter.
