Here are a few of my favorite selections for cocktail hour songs 2016. During the cocktail hour you want to start building the energy but not going to wild. Keep the volume low enough for people to conversate but just loud enough to feel the groove. You can either go for the classic lively jazz or some classic/pop feel good songs.
