What is Cocktails by Design?


Cocktails by Design is a new series of small events hosted by the Goldstein Museum of Design at area design and creative locations. Each event features unique craft cocktails by the amazing Eat Street Social, opportunities to explore new sites across the Twin Cities, and a fun way to mingle with other design enthusiasts. The Cocktails by Design Series consists of three events-one each in the spring, summer, and fall (generally March, June, and November). Each event will have its own locate, theme, and cocktails specifically created for the evening.
