This July, Tales of the Cocktail celebrates its 16th year. TOTC is both cocktail conference and family reunion. It features a spirited schedule of brand new seminars, tastings, competitions and networking events representing the latest the industry has to offer. Additionally, this year’s TOTC features special events that honor the New Orleans tricentennial. Best of all, Hotel Monteleone is once again the headquarter location for this fantastic event!

Dining & Drinking Events

Tales of the Cocktail hosts a number of special dining and drinking events that are perfect for cocktail enthusiasts. The annual Spirited Dinner® Series features prix-fixe menus with specialty cocktail and premium liquor pairings. Reservations for these dinners, held July 19 – 20, must be made directly through the participating restaurants.

Seminars & Educational Events

Educating people about the cocktail is the first and foremost goal of Tales. How? Through tons of speakers, panels, seminars, and tasting events, of course. This year, Tales is teaming up with a number of local breweries and distilleries to offer tours and happy hour specials. Intriguing and educational panels are at the core of Tales of the Cocktail, and Hotel Monteleone is at the center of it all.
