Founded in Pittsburgh in 2001, Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (a.k.a. LUPEC) is an all women’s classic cocktail society. The idea is to gather with like-minded ladies and celebrate classic and contemporary cocktails.

LUPEC provides women with a platform to network with other women in the cocktail/spirits industry as well as with female cocktail and distilled spirits aficionadas. Since we are an informal club there are no obligations, no fees… just the desire to join forces, exchange ideas and simply have good time … in style.

Each chapter in the US has taken a different approach to LUPEC. San Francisco finally started its chapter in the spring of 2011 and quickly developed a core group of active members and many event volunteers.

We are committed to welcoming any lady involved, or interested in, the spirits industry. If you are associated with the distilled spirits industry or cocktail enthusiasts, join us at our monthly cocktail hour (first Sunday or Monday night of the month) at select Bay Area bars.

Sign up for LUPEC at or search for LUPEC San Francisco on Face Book. As a group member you will receive a monthly invitation to our gatherings.

Cheers and see you at the next LUPEC cocktail hour!
