Review from walta5

Got this for the free plus fee deal, and at $12 it was fantastic for that. I'd pay up to $25 to go once, but I'm cheap. The competition was fun, but not THAT exciting in and of itself. The sample sizes were good, and then you got the 2 full...continued

I was a little skeptical at first, but it was so worth it by the middle of the night. We went on the 2nd week that it had started and Jim Beam was sponsoring the event. There were complimentary drinks from Jim Beam and the cocktails they were...continued

The event was alot of fun and very well organized. The drinks were delicious and both bartenders had unique styles. The venue was awesome as well.

Review from Zhong Zhong

Good event with a good amount of booze served for just the goldstar service charge. If you haven't been to Hudson Terrace, it is a chill venue, very hip but not full of itself and very adult compared to Pacha across the street. Most of the...continued

Very fun event. If you can get the ticket for less, its definetly worth it. I think I saw tickets for this event in the $40-50 range, which I believe is too much and you won't think its such a great deal. Hudson Terrace is nice, smaller then i...continued

Review from amazonqueen23

There were 3 rounds inspired by a secret ingredient and 2 bartenders going head to head. There was adequate snacks, very nice atmosphere and interesting mixes.

While the two competing bartenders were entertaining as they mixed and served various cocktail samples (for competition) and other bartenders served larger versions of the cocktails for guests, the overall atmosphere seemed somewhat like a disco...continued

This was such an amazing event!!! There was food available for no charge. On top of the 6 free sample drinks and the 2 comp drinks they offer, the bar had complimentary drinks as well!!! I literally had 12 drinks for ZERO dollars. Well of course I...continued

Review from Kelly Ann Hudak Arzberger

Great concept for the event, however the "featuring a rotating selection of delicious stationed appetizers" was not at all up to par. Make sure you eat before you get there as the sample drinks vary in liquor and were bigger than the anticipated...continued

Review from Jolavs

My friends and I had a great time. We made it a girls night out. It was a great venue, we were able to try all the drinks that were made and got 2 free drink tickets on top of that. It was a definite STEAL to get the tix through Goldstar!

Review from Lisa

Pros: The event was organized well. It was nice to get in for free, receive 5 tastings and 2 free drinks. I was curious though because some people checked in and received 4 free drinks. Great MC and DJ. The contestants were energized and...continued

Bartenders were friendly, but the drinks were juice. It was all pre-made which I understand because they have a high volume of people to pour for, but they just tasted like juice. There was no hustle from the competing bartenders. We left half way...continued

Review from Sarah

Drinks are great, place is nice, mixed crowd, appetizers - great for a relaxed/fun night out.
I didn't give 5 stars as I think it is not worth the full price. If you get it at a discount - go for it!

Review from Lauren

It is not a very sophisticated event, and I would not describe the bartending as "mixology," but the cocktails did contain alcohol, and that seemed to be the priority for most other guests. The format is not particularly well thought out- having...continued

Review from prichardnyc

I'm happy I bought tickets for only $15 or $20! The place might not be the best for a lot of fun. We thought it was ok but a bit boring. It's probably a good idea to go with a lot of friends to have your own fun atmosphere.
