Bottoms up! Tales of the Cocktail is the world's premier cocktail festival, held every July in the French Quarter's historic Hotel Monteleone.
Historians may argue over whether the cocktail was first invented in New Orleans, but no other city in the world celebrates the cocktail quite like we do. Every year, thousands of bartenders, spirit makers, bar pros and tippling enthusiasts pour into New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail, the world's premier cocktail festival.
For five days every July, the French Quarter is transformed into a playground and study hall devoted to the art and science of the cocktail. The Spirited Dinner series matches the city's best chefs and restaurants with the world-renowned mixologists for multi-course meals and cocktail pairings. The Hotel Monteleone, Royal Sonesta New Orleans and other French Quarter hotels host seminars and panel discussions, new spirit launches, cocktail tastings and demonstrations conducted by leading authorities on cocktails, bartending, spirits and mixology.
