The London Cocktail Week began in 2010 and welcomed 5,000 cocktail lovers to a pop-up hub in Selfridges department store. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and grown into a London wide celebration of the Cocktail.
London Cocktail Week is now one of the biggest drinks festival in the UK with over 250 bars taking part .One of the most popular aspects of the festival is £5 Cocktail Tours in which participating bars sell some of their most popular concoctions for only £5. Each area has its own selection of bars to discover.
The Festival has two major sites, the LCW Cocktail Village in Old Spitalfields Market and The World Class House at Piccadilly Circus. At both hubs, visitors can participate in workshops and classes by World Class bartenders and experts, try a range of delicious drinks made from premium reserve brands, listen to great music and enjoy street food.
To get involved in the festivities you will need to buy a festival pass; which cost £10 and are available to buy online. It’s important to buy your pass before the week to beat the queues. To go inside the cocktail village, attend events and access the discounts and offers all you have to do is show your pass.
