A night at Watts & Ward begins with its entrance on the side of the historic Montague building, leading you downstairs to speakeasy-style bar Watts & Ward.

Finding the 1920s-meets-modern cocktail bar is just the beginning of what’s in store at Watts & Ward on Thursday.

Guests at Making Raleigh: The Local Cocktail, from Raleigh Convergence x Watts & Ward, will hear stories from behind the bar in an exclusive evening of experiential cocktail tasting.

The event is organized by Raleigh Convergence and our partner Hibernian Hospitality. Tickets are $30 and limited in number for a more intimate event.

Attendees will be guided through a tasting of three local cocktails in a flight by Watts & Ward Beverage Director Logan Mosteller.

The program, which begins at 7 p.m. this Thursday, will include stories of the creative products and processes that make the Triangle area unique, including:
  • How award-winning Durham Distillery and Conniption Gin are made
  • A moderated panel will discuss how the ingredients of the local cocktails work together, from herbs to bitters to spirits
  • The ethos of one of Raleigh’s best bars from Watts & Ward’s Saul Parada
