It’s one of the city’s most dazzling drinking events: The Science of Cocktails pairs some of Vancouver’s most accomplished mixologists with the wow-factor of physics, chemistry, and biology for an epic open bar night to remember.

The 2020 event will take place on February 6 at TELUS World of Science, and tickets for this incredibly popular evening of drinks, learning, and fun always sell out. Starting now, tickets are available to purchase for the next Science of Cocktails.

For its fifth year, Science of Cocktails promises more than 30 cocktail stations, each offering uniquely tested and tasted beverages.

Award-wining bartenders will be mixing up their creative concoctions for your sipping pleasure, each served with delicious bites from top Vancouver restaurants, and all paired with engaging demonstrations, alluring science activities, and specialized Science World programming.

All proceeds from the Science of Cocktails event support the Class Field Trip Bursary Program, allowing over 9,000 kids from underserved schools in British Columbia to visit Science World at TELUS World of Science. The Field Trip Bursary program makes it possible for students to visit Science World in the next school year who otherwise might not have been able to visit. Since its inception in 2016, over 23,000 students have participated in the program.

So far, Science of Cocktails has raised a total of $943,000 for this program and aims to add another $280,000 to that number with this year’s event, which would see the program surpass over $1 million raised.

This is a terrific opportunity to have an incredible night out at a unique venue, and enjoy cocktails from the talented minds behind the stick at popular Vancouver watering holes.
