There's nothing quite like a stiff drink - whether you take yours shaken, stirred, or straight-up. And here to bring us over a week of much-needed stiff drinks is London Cocktail Week, returning in a new form for 2022 as renowned bars whip up a month of £7 signature serves.
The festival is a celebration of London's incredible drinks scene and is the biggest cocktail festival in the world, with the best bars across the capital taking part. You'll find award-winning names like Homeboy, Callooh Callay and Nightjar, through to activity-led heavyweights including Flight Club and Electric Shuffle.
The Cocktail Village? Forget one plot, this year there will be a whole host of Little Cocktail Villages spanning Belgravia, Borough Yards, Covent Garden and Devonshire Square; each hosting pop-up bars. For those of you who fancy hitting up your favourite watering hole or discovering a new one, participating venues are going all out with immersive experiences, installations, masterclasses, paired dinners, and tastings.
The Hendrick’s Gin underwater opening party at Silverleaf is bound to be a corker.
London Cocktail Week takes place across London from 13th October - 23rd October 2022. Tickets cost £15 per person (£12.50 in a bundle of 6) and give you £7 cocktails in participating bars. For the full line-up and to secure your wristband, head here.
