Virtual Happy Hour
With recent global events, Old Town Business, much like the rest of the world, pivoted our attention from a week long celebration of cocktails in 2020 to the virtual scene by introducing Old Town Cocktail | Virtual Happy Hour. Here, you get to participate in crafting a special cocktail led by one of Old Town’s talented bartenders; then you get to hear from them, a retail guest, and a spirits expert that creates the spirit used in your drink!
Get your to-go cocktail ahead of time from the featured restaurant to craft your cocktail at home that day. We will post them here so you can craft all your favorite cocktails any time! Cheers!
Each business featured is a member of Old Town Business. To any Old Town business that would like to be part of this process, just contact us! The feeling is mutual. We will add you to the roster.
