Art of Mixology 2021

We are thrilled to announce that Art of Mixology is back in Theatre Square in 2021!

The annual Art of Mixology event at Orinda Theatre Square is Lamorinda Arts Council's largest fundraiser of the year with limited capacity (compared to past years with 300+ attendees). The event will host both professional and amateur bartenders creating luscious craft cocktails as the audience and judges sample and vote for their favorites. It's an event not to be missed!

Tickets are $75 and include craft cocktail tasting, bites from 5 local restaurants, a shot glass and program, music and fun! Online ticket sales are closed, but a limited number tickets will be available at the door on 10/16 at 4:15pm.

We are also bringing back our popular Art of Mixology Cocktail Kits, which were offered in lieu of the live event in 2020. These kits will include everything you need (except the alcohol) to mix up your very own craft cocktail from the comfort of home! Pre-order your kits today!
