Art of Mixology

2020 Art of going VIRTUAL!

How Can A Cocktail Competition Go Virtual?

The Annual Art of Mixology event at Orinda Theatre Square is Lamorinda Arts Council's largest fundraiser of the year, attracting crowds of 300 attendees every year.  The event hosts up to 18 bartenders creating luscious craft cocktails as the audience and judges sample and vote for their favorites.

This year, the 2020 Art of Mixology is going V I R T U A L! You will have the opportunity to mix with the mixologists by watching how the experts mix their concoctions and by purchasing Art of Mixology Kits with directions to make delicious cocktails. There will also be an Audience Award for your favorite drink and mixologist! Details coming soon!
