Back & Bigger Than Ever: London Cocktail Week Is Finally Here!

It’s back, and it’s better: 300 bars, £6 cocktails, one pass. London Cocktail Week 2018.

That’s right, folks! London Cocktail Week is back this year for the world’s biggest annual seven-day boozy bonanza from October 1-7, and it couldn’t be simpler to get involved. Just one pass  – available from us for £10 – is needed to get access to no fewer than 300 of the best bars in London.

What do you get? Delicious signature cocktails from each participating bar for a mere £6 each – and free entry, with even more £6 deals, to the Old Truman Brewery’s The Cocktail Village (open Oct 3-7) where hundreds of mixologists will be concocting mouthwatering drinks. Count us in for moderate and responsible drinking.

Now, where are the fabled 300 bars the pass gives access to? LCW’s full list is on their website – you can even search for your ideal bar by area, spirit or type of experience – whether it’s rooftop, basement, tiki or speakeasy, date night,, wine bar, whisky joint or hidden gem you’re after – the organisers has this down to a fine art.

Here are our top picks for the week by area:


 Hoxley and Porter

Whisky fans will love the lavish surroundings at Islington’s Hoxley & Porter and their signature Smokey Bob Roy cocktail: Laphroaig Scotch Whisky, Sweet Vermouth and Angostura Bitters.


Hackney Coffee Cok

Unassuming from the outside, the Hackney Coffee Co. in Bethnal Green is a plant-lover’s paradise, and they have a cocktail to match with the lively and herbaceous Revivo: Thyme-infused Patron Silver Tequila, Joven Mezcal, Yellow Chartreuse, Suze, Lemon and Habanero Simple Syrup.


fac 49

Hidden in south London’s Mercato Metropolitano, Factory 45, Borough are serving up the Mademoiselle Louise, with White Rum, Cointreau, Lemon Juice and Cognac.



Pomona’s in Notting Hill is a fresh ‘gram-worthy setting to sip the Matcha Mule, featuring New Amsterdam Vodka, Fresh Lime Juice and Matcha Powder topped with Ginger Beer.


Mr Foggs Soc Explo

The brand new Mr Foggs Society of Exploration in Covent Garden is a steampunk dream, and they’re mixing up The Mechanical Mixologist featuring Star of Bombay Gin, Martini Riserva Speciale Rubino Vermouth and Martini Riserva Speciale Bitter Aperitif.

If, like us, you love cocktails but don’t want to break the bank, London Cocktail Week is the perfect time to get your fix. Even if you only end up getting two cocktails, you’re still quids in – and even more so if you’re getting non-alcoholic cocktails at £4 a pop!

The digital pass is loaded onto a custom app on your phone (and located in your ‘wallet’), which also provides all the information you need to explore the many venues.

London Cocktail Week runs citywide Monday Oct 1 – Sunday October 7. Get your £10 pass here!
