Why You Can't Miss Cocktails In The City This Summer

Last updated . By Alexa Ross.

The biggest cocktail pop up in the UK is coming to Glasgow.

It's no secret that Cocktails in the City is the country's hottest drinks event, and it comes to Glasgow for the first time on Friday 25th August. In a city known for its pubs, CITC is the premiere event to turn any pub regular into a cocktail connoisseur. That's why we came up some of the best reasons why you have to grab a ticket to Cocktails In The City this year. 

16 of Glasgow's best bars are center stage

Glasgow is more than a bunch of pubs, and Cocktails in the City is here to remind you of that. Top bars like The Finnieston, Gin71, The Spiritualist and Kelvingrove Cafe will be popping up for the event, offering tastings and the opportunity to concoct your own spirit. Signature cocktails made with Arbikie, Campari and Copperhead Gin are a steal at £6.50. Street food vendors will also be in attendance if you need to satisfy your need for drunk munchies.  

It's one of your only chances to drink in the Briggait 

How many times can you say you went for cocktails in a 144 year old Grade A building? The city's former fish market plays host to Cocktails in the City this year, which is only fitting. CITC occupies unique buildings around the country, and the old hub of Merchant City is the perfect place to become the cocktail hub of Glasgow for the night.

The ticket price includes A TON of cool stuff

£12? That will get you into the event and one free drink when you enter. While it doesn't seem like much at first glance but your ticket also includes a CITC Membership Card, which includes VIP access to cocktail preview evenings, masterclasses, tastings, food and cocktail pairings throughout the rest of the year. Trust us, one night of Cocktails in the City isn't enough. 

Cocktails in the City is taking place at the Briggait, 141 Bridgegate, Townhead, Glasgow G1 5HZ, on Fri 25 August from 18:00-23:00. Buy your tickets here.
