London Cocktail Week is back for its 7th year and is bringing us a 7 day cocktail party from the 3rd to the 9th of October. This celebration of London’s cocktail culture will allow you to taste and try all the capital has to offer. Hosted by DrinkUp.London, the 7 day cocktail showcase will be spread across more than 250 participating bars in London. Week-long festival passes are £10 and can be bought here 

London Cocktail Week’s two homes

The cocktail festival is due to be housed in 2 main locations; The World Class house (Piccadilly Circus) and The London Cocktail Week Village (Old Spitalfield Market). In Drinkup.London’s own words, “At the World Class House experience an exciting new liquid journey unfolding before you, exploring your senses and future trends – with a cocktail in hand of course. Participate in workshops and classes by World Class bartenders and experts, try a range of delicious drinks all made from their premium reserve brands and let the hedonistic immersive pop-up transport you into the unknown. Over at the Cocktail Village you’ll discover an entire market of pop-up bars, trucks, vans, even bicycles all serving up bespoke £5 drinks. There’ll be hands-on masterclasses from brands such as Chivas alongside street food, great music and a fabulous festival atmosphere.”

What will a pass get you?

Well… the £10 pass will ensure you are able to get unlimited £5 cocktails in over 250 of London’s best bars, unlimited entry to the two main hubs (where all cocktails are only £5), a guide book to London’s best cocktail bars as well as other deals and discounts.
