Tonight, Tuesday, October 23 at 7:00 kicks off the first set with the introduction of the fall cocktail menu.

The W’s top mixer, er libationist, Joyce Garrison says, “The fall menu is a fusion of cocktails that we are really passionate about. I wanted to feature fresh, seasonal ingredients combined with unexpected flavors that would allow guests to try new drinks and still come back for their favorites.”
