Ticket Purchase Rules
What happens if my wristband is lost or damaged?
Under no circumstances will wristbands be replaced whether lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed – even with proof of purchase. Wristbands are non-transferable.
What is the minimum age requirement?
You must be 21+ to purchase and participate in NYC Cocktail Week. You will be required to present your ID when picking up your wristband at featured bar locations.
When can I use my wristband?
Your wristband will be valid from Monday, July 13th – Friday, July 17th.
Can I buy discounted drinks for my friends?
Unfortunately, you may not purchase discounted drinks or food for anyone else – no buying rounds or doubling up. Your wristband entitles you personally to the benefits of NYC Cocktail Week.
Are there any limitations on the number of drinks or food that can be consumed?
There are no limits on the number of discounted drinks or food that you are allowed to consume; however, participating bars and restaurants reserve the right not to serve individuals who they believe to be intoxicated. Please remember, the week is all about trying out signature drink and food items at participating locations. You should be mindful of how much you consume and ensure you are behaving properly.
Is there anything else I should know?
If you’re thinking about driving, don’t do it. We want everyone to enjoy himself or herself throughout NYC Cocktail Week, but we want you to get home to tell people about your great time. You should not drink alcohol and then drive and you should not offer alcohol to anyone who will be driving. Have fun and stay safe!
