Sugar, bitters, and whiskey: the three key ingredients to one of the simplest, yet most elegant cocktails, served in a glass of the same name. The Old Fashioned has been around for centuries, recently making a resurgence thanks to Don Draper and his Mad Men crew, as well as our renewed interest in craft cocktails.

On Tuesday, July 23rd, join us as four of the best downtown Santa Barbara bars and restaurants compete for the title of Best Old Fashioned. You will taste the selection at each location and ultimately vote on your favorite at the final stop and after-party.

Meet at the first location at 6:30pm to get your guide and crown, and then continue on a self-guided quest to find the best Old Fashioned in town! A limited number of presale tickets are now available for $30. Participating locations will be revealed the week of the event.

Advanced ticket purchase is recommended.

Cocktail attire is encouraged but not required.
