The sixth annual Artini, the Corcoran’s perennially sold-out cocktail party, returns March 22 with art-inspired drinks from a new group of “it” bartenders, including the Gibson’s Frank Jones, the Passenger’s Alex Bookless and Bandolero’s Taha Ismail.
The party, which began in 2008, tasks eight mixologists with creating a drink inspired by a work from the Corcoran’s collection. Attendees can taste all the drinks, nosh on hors d’oeuvres and get to know bartenders from new restaurants such as Daikaya. A winner will be officially chosen, but by that point, most of the partygoers will have already picked their favorite.
General admission tickets are $125; VIP tickets (buy these if you want early access and a swag bag) are $160 for Corcoran members or $200 for the general public.
