It is that time of year again, and for the fifth season running the successful and delicious London Cocktail Week is returning to town to entice drink enthusiasts and mixologists alike.
To get involved then you need to get a wristband which cost £10 in advance. You can get them once the week has started but they are more expensive at £15. The band gives you access to a week’s worth of low cost cocktail frivolties.
More than 250 participating bars across London will be running free sampling sessions, demonstrations and self-guided cocktail tours. Bespoke and unlimited cocktails will be on offer for just £4 each, with a special app telling you where the best and nearest offerings are available.
The week runs from Monday 6 to Sunday October 12, along with eleven pop up bars featuring distinct spirits from the capital .
For those with more luxurious tastes LCW will, for the first time, be offering The Luxe List in association with Belvedere Vodka, five very exclusive bars which will be offering a signature serve at the reduced rate of £8 per cocktail.
Hidden beneath Harrild and Sons in the City, this basement bar opened earlier this year and specialises in rare whiskies. From Wales to Japan, Holland to Taiwan and Sweden to New Zealand, the bar’s vast whisky collection includes over 80 bottles making it one of London’s most extensive whisky bars.
