Deets: We’re hanging out with DC’s chefs, mixologists, and producers to create an unforgettably delicious Tastemaker DC. Tastemaker Tour, hosted by each city’s favorite chefs, mixologists, and producers, Tastemaker will bring a new type of immersive culinary experience with food, drink and music at its core to some of North America’s best culinary destinations.

The heart of Tastemaker, like any good party, is in the Tastemaker Kitchen—an open, collaborative space where the best chefs from each city (as well as a few brought along  from other tour stops) will pair up and blend their unique styles to produce one-of-a-kind dishes and menus that reflect the city on a plate. With a rotation of DJs spinning throughout the day and night from inside the kitchen, guests can hit the dance floor while tasting unique creations and mixing with culinary tastemakers.

The same rules apply at Tastemaker’s very own drinks cabinet, The Tastemaker Bar—a craft cocktail hub bringing together the city’s mixologists to put fresh local twists on all the classics. Also joining the party is a curated selection of more than 30 restaurants, wineries, breweries, and producers that guests can discover while exploring Tastemaker’s immersive home for the weekend.

Tastemaker is created by IMG, an Endeavor company and the team behind some of the most popular culinary events around the globe, including Taste Festivals, The World Restaurant Awards, The Big Feastival and Gourmet Escape. The events give guests a unique all-inclusive experience where they can enjoy food, drink, and entertainment, in a unique setting from just $55, and is for ages 21 and over.

Hint for the Average Socialite: Tickets are available May 21!
