Virtual Monet Inspired Cocktail Workshop with Boleo
October 13 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join this virtual cocktail workshop with Mixologist Sam Garcia of Boleo live-streamed from Garfield Park Conservatory!
Inspired by Monet’s mastery of the changing effects of light and the juxtaposition of colors, Mixologist Sam Garcia of Boleo, has created a series of cocktails that mimic Monet’s passing of time as seen through the movement of light over identical forms. Join this virtual workshop to learn how to make one of the Monet inspired cocktails at home. The list of ingredients for the gin-based cocktail will be sent to everyone who pre-registers in advance of the workshop so you can follow along.
About Boleo: Named for a move from the Argentine tango, Boleo brings the dramatic flavors and sultry beats of South America to the best rooftop in the Loop for Chicagoans to enjoy year-round. Forget the 15-hour flight: All it takes to get to Boleo is a 15-story elevator ride to the top of THE KIMPTON GRAY HOTEL. Up here, the curated playlist never ends and the savory aroma of Peruvian and Argentinian street food perfumes the air, while our massive retractable glass roof keeps the vibe warm no matter the season.
About the Kimpton Gray Hotel Chicago: The Kimpton Gray Hotel Chicago is Chicago’s newest Four Diamond Hotel and was recently named one of Chicago’s Best Hotels of 2019 by U.S. News and World Report. Located at 122 W. Monroe St. in the historic New York Life Insurance Building, originally built in 1894, Kimpton Gray Hotel takes its name from the Georgia Gray marble that’s lent the structure a sense of sophistication for well over a century. The hotel’s granite lobby, art deco light fixtures and contemporary rooms are an ornate retreat in the Loop. The hotel is also home to Boleo, the top-of-the hotel bar and lounge with retractable roof.
