We have partnered with the North Carolina Museum of Art to serve cocktails inspired by their popular, annual event Art in Bloom, presented by PNC. In the same way that floral designers interpret works of art in the Museum’s collection, our bartenders were similarly inspired to create cocktails as delicious as they are interesting to look at. A portion of proceeds from the sale of these cocktails will be donated to the Museum.

Join us at The Willard Rooftop Weds, Mar 15, through Sun, Mar 19, during our normal operating hours to enjoy three artfully crafted cocktails from bartenders Andy Skinner, Ashleigh Rosa, Alicia Arritt, and Jessie Rossabi:

Bartender Ashleigh Rosa was inspired by the painting “Tide” by color field artist Kenneth Noland.
