Portland Cocktail Week

51 events across Portland
Portland Cocktail Week Schedule
4 Days. 51 events. Lots of drinks & lots of fun. All centered around cocktails. Portland Cocktail Week 2010 was a rousing success. This year, it’s set to exceed all expectations and provide a wide range of events, from cheering on bartenders running to kick cancer’s ass to a Great American Distillers Festival and ending the series of events with stripperoke at Devil’s Point.
Portland Cocktail Week Events
Travel Pernod Ricard Event at Wilf’s Restaurant – Thursday, October 20 @ 8:00pm ($40). Tickets to this event. Portland Cocktail Week begins at Wilf's- one of Portland's most elegant destinations and iconic jazz clubs. With an atmosphere that conjures mid-century glamour, Wilf's is the ideal backdrop for our most sophisticated gathering. To enjoy this party, all you’ll need is your most refined attire- we’ll bring the classic cocktails starring Pernod Ricard’s stellar portfolio.
Yacht Rocking with Don Q Rum Event at Lola’s Room – Friday, October 21 @ 8:00pm ($40). Tickets to this event. Kenny Loggins once said, “This is it. The waiting is over.” And, as usual, Mr. Loggins could not be more right. You've waited long enough, and now the party you've been dreaming of is finally here. Our host, Don Q Rums, will whisk you away to a smoother time when the dulcet tones of Michael McDonald's voice set the mood casually encouraging you to slip on your boat shoes and float past all of life's troubles. With a drink in hand, get ready to sing along to your favorite 80s soft rock hits with your very own backing band.
Robots vs. Bartenders Event at Jupiter Hotel – Saturday, October 22 @ 8:00pm ($40). Tickets to this event. Sure, robots can make cocktails, but can they do it better than their human counterparts? The Oregon Bartenders Guild is betting they can't. And, to prove human dominance, they've invited their mechanical rivals to an all out battle on their home turf, the Jupiter Hotel. Cheer on your favorite bartenders (whether they be human or robot) with a cocktail and tasty bites.
