After long days filled with seminars, tastings and events, Tales of the Cocktail attendees and the public can retire to late-night sessions at Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse (Royal Sonesta, 300 Bourbon St., 553-2270). Called Tales after Dark, the series unites jazz styles with appropriate drinks each night. Liquor sponsors will set up special bars offering the evening’s featured drinks. The soirees last from midnight until 2 a.m.

Wednesday is “Havana Nights” featuring Nueva Tierra playing Cuban jazz and Bacardi rum cocktails.

Thursday is "Keeping it Rio," with Chegadao playing Brazilian samba-funk with special guests David Pulphus, Paul Thibodeaux and Alexey Marti. Caipirinhas (cachaca sugarcane liquor mixed with sugar and lime) and batidas (frozen drinks of cachaca mixed with sugar and fruit juice) will be served.

Friday brings the “Sounds of Storyville” with Burlesque Ballroom starring Trixie Minx performing to the music of Jayna Morgan and the Sazerac Sunrise Band. Sidecars (cognac, orange liqueur and lemon juice) and French 75’s (cognac, champagne, lemon juice and sugar) are featured.

Saturday is “Shake Your Brass.” Irvin Mayfield leads the Hot 8 Brass Band as they celebrate contemporary local with Benchmark Bourbon and beer.
