The Grove Event Center


Cincinnati is rich in popular music history. The roots of Funk, Soul, Jazz, R & B and Rock n’ Roll can be found right here in our very own Queen City. Join us at The Grove Event Center for a night of storytelling, infectious live music, and signature cocktails, as mixologists and authors of Cincinnati Rocktails: An Amped Up Spin on Mixology, Kristen Kreft and Mayalou Banatwala share the stories of these famous founders of American popular music, and their Cincinnati connections. We will journey through the stories of James Brown, Rosemary Clooney, The Isley Brothers and Nina Simone. With each story, a custom cocktail will be introduced for you to try while Queen City Cabaret sends you down memory lane, bringing the Cincinnati Rocktails: An Amped Up Spin on Mixology cocktail book to life, with performances of songs from each honored musical icon. Your ticket will include 2 of the 4 signature cocktails and dinner. Additional signature cocktail tickets can be purchased for $10 each. As a special feature, copies of the cocktail history book, Cincinnati Rocktails: An Amped Up Spin on Mixology can be purchased in advance with your ticket for just $25. All pre-purchased cocktail books will be autographed and given to you at the event!
