The Ultimate Cocktail Experience, Sept. 22, 2018

The Ultimate Cocktail Experience is back for another round. Now in its seventh year, the event raises funds for Trigger’s Toys, a non-profit organization that provides aid to hospitalized children and their families. Last year, the UCE collected more than $200,000, and this year, they’re hoping to top that number and provide even more assistance to those in need. Bartenders, distributors, brands and consumers will come together for an unforgettable cocktail experience at the Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum on September 22nd from 7 – 11 p.m. VIP ticket holders gain entry at 6 p.m. This year’s event will include four unique bar concepts with each responsible for a menu of 10 cocktails from a pair of male and female captains. The Bomb Factory will be transformed into a city posh city as guests sample the delicious libations, they may bump into street performers, fortune tellers, or a shoe shine stand—so they’ll want to keep their heads on a swivel. And while party-goers explore, they’ll enjoy the sounds of the Manhattan band and DJ Dave Paradice. You don’t want to miss the ultimate event in giving back and good times.
