It’s London Cocktail Week! One of the biggest weeks in the professional boozehound’s calendar, this week is brimming with events, whether you fancy transporting yourself to New York via St Paul’s Cathedral, a pop-up dinner club with gin, blending your own whisky, or seeing what happens when Melbourne and Berlin spirits collide, there is something for everyone.
The main event to head to is the Cocktail Village in Spitalfields market, home to over 30 specially created pop-up bars from some of the biggest names in the industry. Oh, and cocktails here are only £6 a pop!
You will need a wristband to get into the festival, which you can get from the lovely folks at Time Out for half price at only £5, or from the main organisers of the festival, DrinkUp London. This pass gets you a wristband, which gets you unlimited £6 cocktails all week, both in the cocktail village and at several participating bars! Forget that 1935 bottle of Scotch you have been pining over, this is easily one of the best booze investments you will make this year.
For a full list of bars and events, check out the official website of the festival here. Now what are you waiting for? There is no better excuse this week to have a drink, so raise a glass to the best bars and cocktails this fine city has to offer!
