Get ready for London Cocktail Week!


On October 6th, London Cocktail Week returns for seven days of drink-fuelled debauchery with parties, pop-ups and masterclasses all over the city. Check out the full events schedule on the LCW site – they sell out fast, so don’t miss out! Here are some of this year’s highlights:

–  Tanqueray Gin Masterclass – A free gin talk and tasting at Mark’s Bar at Hixter City.
–  Vestal Voyages – A trip down Regent’s Canal on London’s first floating distillery and bar.
–  Eat Meat, Drink Buffalo – A 3-course dinner & Buffalo Trace bourbon tasting at JW Steakhouse.
–  Fever-Tree’s G&T Safari – A walk ‘n’ sip tour of five bars to try five outstanding gin and tonics.
–  Soho Food Walk – A tour of Soho’s finest bites and beverages led by London from Scratch.
–  The Rum Ramble – An unmissable rum-focused tour of five bars with Shake Rattle & Stir.
–  Freixenet terrace at Swingers – Sip cava at the crazy golf and street food pop-up in Shoreditch.

As ever, the LCW wristband entitles you to £4 cocktails at over 200 London bars including Callooh Callay, The Jones Family Project, The Blues Kitchen, and Silk & Grain. It’s a great excuse to revisit old favourites or check out those exclusive hotel bars and speakeasies you’ve always fancied trying. You can use the bar map to plan a cocktail crawl and if you need restaurant recommendations along the way, try a search on OpenTable or ask our experts on twitter.

Wristbands cost a tenner and can be collected from the LCW hub in Seven Dials and new hubs at Bluebird in Chelsea, Mark’s Bar at Hixter City, and The Whisky Exchange in London Bridge.
