No MCC this year



Manhattan Cocktail Classic may have canceled this year but New York is rallying to keep some events going. MCC is refunding tickets purchased for the Gala and the Industry Invitational but as they stated: “The local events highlighted on the “Special Events” page are still being held without association to the Manhattan Cocktail Classic. *Tickets purchased through Manhattan Cocktail Classic are nonrefundable.” 

The show must go on!
