Rye Rocks at the Walters: A Drinks Party

Online tickets for this event are sold out, but there are still a few tickets available at the door. See you at the Walters!

Warm your winter spirits at a special cocktail party featuring rye whiskey, the American classic that launched the Walters family fortune. The evening celebrates our new installation From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story. Sample the original straight-up rye loved by our founders William and Henry Walters, enjoy signature rye cocktails, and hear a talk at 7:15 p.m. about the revival of rye distilleries from James Beard Award Winner and Esquire Magazine’s resident cocktail historian David Wondrich. Roaring 1920s dress encouraged!

The evening includes jazz music and hearty artisan fare. Beer and wine options will also be available.

Honorary Chair for the event is Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. Hosted by The Women’s Committee of the Walters Art Museum. Proceeds benefit the Museum’s special exhibitions and education programs.
