The French liqueur company Cointreau is taking over a Potrero Hill warehouse for a week and has transformed it into the specially designed La Maison Cointreau. The event features a variety of rooms, each designed to explore a particular facet of Cointreau’s past and present (including a cocktail lab, designed to look like an apothecary). Each guided tour features a viewing of antique cocktail recipe books and a crash course on cocktail history, lessons, and tastes from Kyle Ford, and fabulous music in a special space (think boudoir meets ballroom). The best part? It’s all free—you just have to RSVP. Tours are available to the public on Wednesday November 14th and Thursday November 15th from 6pm-9:30pm. Trade tours run from 1pm-4pm, both days. 21+. 1550 17th St. at Wisconsin.
