First Annual Uptown Flavor Festival Now Calling For Mixologists And Bartenders


VIBE Viva and The Uptown Collective, in partnership with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, have set out to navigate the buzzing streets of New York City for bartending wizardry.

The Uptown Flavor Festival 2017 aims to bring a fresh culinary experience to the city’s culturally-significant area above 96th Street, highlighting up-and-coming mixologists and expert bartenders, along with emerging chefs doing something new and different with Latin American cuisine.

We are now accepting video submissions from those who eat, sleep and breathe the art of concocting the perfect cocktail. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to send us a 60-second clip showing off your personal spin on a classic vodka cocktail, briefly telling us a little about its history and why Tito’s works especially well with it.

Send original material to, and best of luck to you all! We encourage you to also upload your video on Instagram or Twitter using the #UptownFlavorFest hashtag. Winners will be contacted individually via email and will get to participate in this one-of-a-kind collaboration of spirits and food for cash prize.

We invite you to subscribe to the weekly Uptown Love newsletter, like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter & Instagram or e-mail us at
