Tattersall Distilling reveals its first event space, Clover Club. Adjacent to the original Tattersall building, Clover Club is a 7,000-square-foot with 2,400 square feet used as the event space and the rest dedicated to barrel storage.

"We are incorporating many of the same design pieces from the existing bar into the new event space. This includes actually removing the bar top from our main bar and using it in the Clover Club. We’ll be replacing the bar top in the main bar for a bit of an update," says Jon Kreidler, co-founder/chief officer of Tattersall. "We have never had a private event space, and we have never closed our cocktail room for private events, despite many requests, so this is really an exciting chance for us to share our space with even more people and meet that demand."

Clover Club, which is a more intimate space for up to 50 people, will offer customizable service and menus, while still featuring some of the distillery's classics.

"One of our head bartenders, Alice Brandt, will be leading the bar program in the new space and will leverage both the constant R&D from the main bar, but also her incredibly creative background to make the menu very unique. We are playing around with the idea of having special spirits that will only be available to guests in the Clover Club," Kreidler says.

Kreidler says they are planning on making Clover Club a very flexible event space, offering private distillery tours, cocktail classes, barrel tastings, dinner and cocktail pairings, and more. They are also working on a plan for charitable groups to use the space for a deep discount, helping various causes, he adds.

But Clover Club isn't the only exciting news at Tattersall. They also recently launched their first bottled, ready-to-drink cocktail, Old Fashioned. It features Tattersall's signature Rye Whiskey, Sour Cherry Liqueur, aromatic bitters, and a dash of orange zest and sugar. 

The bottled Old Fashioned is sold at select retailers in a 750ml bottle for $34.99. It is recommended to consume it the Tattersall way: simply and over ice.

A prime site for conventions, trade shows and exhibitions, the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) recognizes that it has a unique opportunity to impact the lives of millions of guests and community members that step through its doors every year. That’s why the center has recently collected and donated 14.1 tons of remaining event items and 12 tons of carpet to various Los Angeles-based nonprofit organizations, in alignment with their commitment to zero-waste initiatives.

 

As with most facets of the meetings and events industry, the art of managing an event budget is a true balancing act. And while it’s easy to get wrapped up in the nitty-gritty, Eventbrite revealed a pleasant surprise in its 2018 Pulse Report (which surveyed 1,200 planners), finding that event budgets overall appear to be on the rise. But where exactly are those budget dollars going these days and how can planners best spend to craft memorable moments?

 

According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, about 1.5 million Illinois workers are employed in the food and fiber system, ranking it as one of the top states in dependency on agriculture. The state’s 72,500 farms utilize 75 percent of Illinois land, including some of the most fertile soil in the world. While nicknamed “The Prairie State,” Illinois is truly a land of plenty and a hub for agritourism—with some of the largest agriculture-focused events (holding the potential for major economic impact) taking place inside its borders.
