Welcome to Conscious Cocktails Gatherings intellectual salons

About Us

Who we are and what we do:


Conscious Cocktails Gatherings are enlightening, engaging, and inspiring intellectual salons for women. Each get-together is a thoughtfully curated, intimate, spirited, multi-sensory experience incorporating music, literature, and other art forms to immerse you in the subject at hand and get the juices flowing. 

No required reading, just be curious and open! We’re intellectual, but we’re relaxed.

Our evenings will nurture your mind and spirit while you connect and share with others - IRL. Signature cocktails and mocktails round out the experience quite nicely, we think!

Conversations are designed around interesting, open-ended questions to spark ideas. And women who are experts in the topics gently moderate each discussion, to ensure that the dialogue stays on course, that everyone is heard, and to add valuable input throughout.

As for the rest of us amateurs? Conscious Cocktails Gatherings is founded firmly on the belief that everyone’s life experience is significant, and everyone is worthy of contributing to the conversation. And we’re committed to bringing diverse perspectives to the table.

We aim to limit our gatherings to small groups of women who, for a few hours, come together for a shared purpose; we’ll schedule additional sessions on a topic as appropriate. Evenings will also allow some time to chat with others over a cocktail or mocktail, and process the experience while you listen to the evening’s soundtrack.

Upcoming planned events will be posted below, and on FB & IG. We’re also happy to curate a custom Gathering for you and your friends.

Come gather with us!

Upcoming scheduled Gatherings:


Mark your calendars!

**Our next gathering, is happening on Saturday, October 19th, at Rebel Folk Studio in South Orange. Registration IS now LIVE!** 

Caroline Chubb Calderon, founder and CEO of HelloHumanity ( will lead us in a discussion about all the amazing things that make us uniquely human, and how we want to evolve in the face of AI. Caroline has taught, spoken, and written extensively about the subject, and is involved in defining the standards for ethical AI.

So much to delve into! Ethical decision-making, socio-emotional intelligence, creative thinking... It’s all part of this thought-provoking discussion, as we explore the space where humanity and technology intersect.

As always, Beth Nydick and Tara Roscioli, local cocktail mavens and authors of ”Clean Cocktails: Righteous Recipes for the Modern Mixologist”, bring us signature cocktails to sip.
