Poly Cocktails was started on Valentine’s Day 2007 by three polyamorous activists and friends as a way to create a social outlet for the local poly community in New York. From a small crowd at their first event, held at Madame X in the East Village, Poly Cocktails has grown to become the largest regular social gathering in New York. The event celebrated its 7th anniversary in 2014, and (schedule permitting) is held the second Monday of every month.
