Philadelphia's Cocktail Talent Shaken, Stirred and Donating to The WardrobePhiladelphia, PA - Philadelphia's premier custom menswear boutique, Henry A. Davidsen, is excited to announce the return of Suits & Sazeracs, a charitable cocktail competition raising funds for The Wardrobe, a local non-profit empowering individuals through professional attire.

Sazeracs, Jazz, and Giving Back

This New Orleans-inspired evening promises an unforgettable experience. Guests will be treated to expertly crafted Sazeracs by Philadelphia's top bartenders, all featuring Bluebird Distilling's Straight Rye Whiskey. While indulging in these creative cocktails, attendees will enjoy delectable bites prepared by Square 1682's Executive Chef Patrick Czerniak, with live NOLA-style jazz setting the mood.

The evening goes beyond delicious food and drinks. There will be a silent auction, a live presentation of a sizable check to The Wardrobe, and even a "Best Dressed Guest Award" for those who embrace the glitzy New Orleans theme.

Charitable Impact
