DC Craft Bartenders' Guild and Mixologists Celebrate
The 9th Annual Repeal Day Ball
December 9th, 2016
The DC Craft Bartenders' Guild and founding members are holding their 9th Annual Repeal Day Ball on December 9th, 2016 celebrating the 83rd anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition. The over 600 expected attendees will enjoy cocktails crafted by Washington DC’s and the nation’s best mixologists while dancing along to Prohibition-era sounds. This Black Tie affair will be held at the Historic Carnegie Library.
The secret is out as tickets for this year’s soirée begin at $80. VIP tickets will be available for $120 and will allow guests to kick the party off an hour early as well as grant access to our VIP only champagne room and after party. A portion of this years’ proceeds will go to the Anacostia Watershed Society. They are a local foundation dedicated to protecting and restoring the Anacostia River and its watershed communities by cleaning the water, recovering the shores, and honoring the heritage.
After last years success of the Williams and Graham pop-up, we’re doing it again! This time we are bringing in the team from Herbs and Rye in Las Vegas. Winners of “Best American High Volume Cocktail Bar 2016” at Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards, Herbs and Rye will be mixing it up for all our attendees showing exactly why they’re the best.
We would like to officially welcome this year's visiting mixologists.
