While all eyes will be on the stage for the Sunday, June 16, Tony Awards, the stars will calm their nerves beforehand at the bar.

Baccarat and Basil Hayden, the official bourbon of the awards show, teamed up for an official speakeasy pop-up for attendees, nominees and winners to enjoy delicious themed cocktails. All offerings will be served in classic Baccarat glassware.

“In its 260-year history, Baccarat has continued to celebrate creative expression, so it’s an honor to once again return to the Tony Awards and celebrate those in the world of stage acting who have such a profound impact on culture,” Adam Banfield, the president and CEO of Baccarat North America, said in a press release. “Through our partnership with Basil Hayden, we will honor the timeless tradition and modern innovation of both the city of New York and Broadway in true Baccarat fashion – by bringing light and joy to this remarkable occasion.”

Tony Award attendees will drink up at the Lincoln Center bar ahead of the ceremony, while fans can taste the concoctions for themselves at the Baccarat Hotel New York’s Bar and Grand Salon until June 19.
