The Ultimate Cocktail Experience is back for another round. On September 22, one of the world’s largest charity cocktail events—and Dallas’s most fun annual event—is popping up once more.

Now in its seventh year, the Ultimate Cocktail Experience benefits Trigger’s Toys, a non-profit organization that provides aid to hospitalized children and their families. Last year, the event collected more than $200,000, and this year, they’re hoping to top that number and provide even more assistance to those in need.

The Essential Planner empowers you to create time for the real essentials of life: faith, family, and happiness.

This year the event will transform the Bomb Factory into a fictional city with four unique bar concepts. Each bar concept is led by a pair captains and will offer 10 themed cocktails for guests to sample.

Featured Bar Concepts

Elevate, a swanky hotel bar will be led by Megan McClinton and Jason Pollard from the Usual.

Neon, a lively, colorful bar will be led by Zach Potts from Gung Ho and Trash Collective co-founder Kelsey Ramage, who’s coming all the way from Toronto.

Lab, a molecular mixology bar will be led by Fernanda Cubby Rossano from High & Tight Barbershop and Austin Millspaugh from The Standard Pour.

Corner Bar, a neighborhood bar will be led by Ravinder Singh from Macellaio and Jones Long from Knife.

In addition to sampling delicious libations, party-goers can enjoy street performers, fortune tellers, a shoe shine stand, the sounds of the Manhattan band, and DJ Dave Paradice.

The Ultimate Cocktail Experience takes place on September 22 from 7–11 p.m. VIP ticket holders gain entry at 6 p.m., and receive exclusive access to the VIP Lounge, VIP Bar, and Wine Cave. The Bomb Factory is located at 2713 Canton St in Deep Ellum. Tickets start at $68 and are available here.
