A menu of limited-edition specialty cocktails celebrating Met Museum Presents' Artist in Residence, Alarm Will Sound, will be available for purchase before select performances, in either the Petrie Court Café or the Great Hall Balcony Bar.

Both inspired by and named in honor of the ensemble's first performance at the Met, "The Permanent Collection" cocktail menu will feature an assortment of classic cocktails with a modern twist. This menu will be offered throughout the year, exclusively on evenings when Alarm Will Sound performs.
