No, you haven’t fallen asleep after one too many Old Fashioneds and woken up in a mixology heaven. The Cocktail Village, which will become the main hub of the highly anticipated London Cocktail Week, is returning to Old Spitalfields Market between 3rd – 9th October. The space will be transformed by 39 pop up stalls, drinking dens, nibbling pit stops and booze-vending bikes, all brought to you by some of the finest bars, restaurants, brands and distilleries the city has to offer. Move, shake, stir and sip your way through the likes of Patrón’s Cocktail Lab, Bacardi & Rum Kitchen’s bar, Tia Maria + Coffee Project and Baileys #PSILoveYou Freakshake Bar. And guess what? All you need to get your hands on is the LCW £10 Festival Pass and you can enjoy unlimited £5 cocktails for the whole week. £5 cocktails? In London? We don’t joke about liquor.
London Cocktail Week, now in its seventh year, is run by DrinkUp.London, who have established some pretty incredible relationships with the best bars across the capital. Along with unlimited £5 cocktails in 250 of them, the Festival Pass also gives you access to exclusive Sip & Snack food pairing deals and discounts across the whole of London. In addition to The Cocktail Village, there will also be a second pop-up hub in Piccadilly Circus. The World Class House, spread across five storeys of mixology wonder, will let wristband holders taste fresh flavours, try exciting new brand experiences and explore the evolution of the cocktail. And you can get endless £5 cocktails here too.
