The Bar Convent is the heaven of boozy dreams where industry folk get to mingle. Each brand of alcohol presented itself in a unique way whether it was a cafe-bar or an info-booth. Martini & Rossi set up Caffe Torino where they entertained with an array of specialty cocktails made by various bartenders all over the world. Master Herbalist Ivano Tonutti and Master Blender Beppe Musso discussed the brand’s newest Riserva Speciale range, including Riserva Speciale Rubino vermouth, Riserva Speciale Ambrato vermouth, and the new Riserva Speciale Bitter liqueur. Each carries the famous Martini taste easily distinguishable amongst other alcohols, but each is also unique with its tasting notes. All three are absolute bar-cart essentials (more on that note.) -AP

Welcome Tulum newcomer! Gitano is soon to be NYC’s hottest summer boozing spot. Located in a vacant lot just between TriBeCa and SoHo, the location easily distinguishes itself with 15-foot palm trees and beachy vibes — the lush tropic can seat 450 people under the shade of the Freedom Tower. Offering contemporary Mexican cuisine, Gitano (meaning gypsy) will bring the laissez-faire seaside vibes so necessary as summer kicks off. -AP
