I went to this two weeks ago and it was pretty lame. The cocktails were not very good and the music was awful. Even the alcohol that was the centerpiece of the event couldn't mask how incredibly lame and awkward it was. Don't go! I don't know why this is a Time Out feature, there must be some kind of deal going on between Time Out and the venue.
The Winter Cocktail War

Iron Chef–style takedowns go boozy with the winter edition of this seasonal bartending competition. Cast a vote for your favorite drink as local bartenders like Nick Sanni (the Back Room) and Chris Miano (Le Bain) kick off the Friday series, which culminates after seven bouts in the crowning of a Winter Cocktail War Champion. Each guest can sample five of the competitors’ entered cocktails, plus two full tipples. Along with sipping and judging, guests can nibble on passed hors d’oeuvres from Little Town NY. Stick around afterward for the Terrace’s after-hours roof-deck shindig—don’t worry, it’s heated and enclosed via a retractable dome roof. Admission is complimentary with a Cocktail War ticket.
