Gentleman's Cocktail Crawl
Event Date: 05/12/2012, 1:30 pm

presented by Bonobos

This is most definitely not your frat bro's bar crawl. We've swapped the dive bars for luxurious cocktail lounges, traded our jeans for tuxes, and substituted sticky floors for lavish leather chairs. The result? The city's first-ever black-tie-optional Gentleman's Cocktail Crawl, featuring New York's finest hotel bars. Lest the name mislead: ladies are most emphatically invited to join in the fun. (We're using "Gentleman" in the royal sense here...)

Participants will receive 6 drink tickets upon check-in, redeemable for decadent signature cocktails served up at the following establishments:

The Living Room at the W Downtown
The Libertine at the Thompson Hotel - Gild Hall
Marble Lane Lounge at the Dream Downtown
Ava Lounge and The Bar at the Dream Midtown
Bar Seven Five at the Andaz Wall Street
Forty Four at the Royalton
The National Bar at the Benjamin
Millesime at the Carlton
Toro Lounge at The Smyth Tribeca
The Library Bar at The Hudson Hotel
The Breslin Lobby Bar at Ace Hotel
The Carnegie Club
The Empire Room
And more to come...

And the best part? Your drink tickets double as raffle tickets - so every time you redeem a drink, you'll be automatically entered for a chance to win any number of fabulous and fanciful prizes: from iPhone cases, to pairs of Bonobos's famously polychromatic pants, to overnight stays in some of the participating hotels - even a pair of round trip tickets to London aboard Virgin Atlantic Airways.

(Note that by purchasing tickets to this event, you are agreeing to the Terms & Conditions associated with the raffle drawings.)

Ladies, gentlemen: it's time to elevate the Crawl.

The fine print:
On Thursday May 10th, you will receive an email from the Manhattan Cocktail Classic indicating your designated starting bar for check-in and ticket redemption. You must check in at this venue first in order to collect your drink tickets. After you check in here, you are welcome to hit up the hotels on any path you so desire (so fear not: if you're part of a larger group and get separated for check-in, you can reconvene at stop number two!)

While you can't choose your specific starting bar locale, you can choose a general area from which to embark on your journey: you can either begin in the Great North or the Vast South. (And don't worry, you are still guaranteed access to every establishment, regardless of your starting area.)

You are about to purchase tickets for the Vast South starting area. If you don't want to start here, click on over here to begin your journey in the Great North instead.
