The Rochester Cocktail Revival takes place June 3 to 9 and is the only weeklong festival of its kind in New York. Now in its sixth year, the event started as a way to highlight Rochester’s world-class bartending talent and boost the city’s nightlife. The festivals’ events are spread across more than 20 downtown bars that host more than 60 bar parties, pairing dinners, art events and seminars for both industry and home enthusiasts. Some highlights include:
- The RCR Gala where guests can mingle beneath a magical projection show in the Strasenburgh Planetarium while enjoying cocktails made by Rochester’s best bartenders.
- A Spirit Tasting with more than 40 spirit brands, including national and regional distillers.
- A Nightcap Theatre where guests become part of an interactive mid-century modern story while sipping period-appropriate cocktails.
