DrinkUp.London have teamed up with gods of boozy coffee, Mr Black, to launch London’s first festival expressly dedicated to the espresso martini. Mr Black’s Espresso Martini Fest will run from Thursday 10th-Saturday 12th August celebrating the capital’s most famous cocktail export and including some of the most prestigious cocktail bars.

Running just like London Cocktail Week (don't worry, they're not going to make you stay awake for seven days, this is just three!) the festival will see 50 top cocktail bars across the city pouring £5 variations on this celebrity of the drinks world. Alongside the eponymous serve, each bar will also be rustling up a unique coffee-based cocktail that makes use of Mr Black coffee liqueur – ensuring that visitors will be spoilt for choice wherever they choose to go.

Stand-out bars taking part include the award-winning Milk & Honey, Jason Atherton’s Blind Pig, the hugely successful Grind venues as well as many other outstanding venues such as Cocktail Trading Company, Original Sin, 46 & Mercy, Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings and all the London Cocktail Clubs. 

Attendees will need to purchase a £10 Festival Pass and download the free DrinkUp.London app to search for bars taking part.

In advance of the festival, you will be sent a 10 digit code which will unlock your festival pass. this will live on your mobile phone in the free DrinkUp.London app. Once signed up, simply flash your festival pass at each participating bar to enjoy outstanding cocktails at any time over the three days for just £5.

Some places were fabulous and great value, and some were downright poor. One coffee venue in Soho clearly didn't even add the vodka. Most venues added a service charge to every drink, so the £5 isn't a realistic price. (yes I know this charge is optional) One venue you couldn't get in without being a member, so not much use. What was good was opening our eyes to new and different places and some were great, with the Bloomsbury Club being superb. Finally, be prepared to be awake all night after! visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

Good way to discover some new venues. Would be useful to segregate the "near me now" app location for the specific event and add opening hours. Karen visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

It was good apart from the fact some Places said that they were open but actually weren't open or they couldn't sell alcohol from a certain time, which meant a lot of walking around and less drinking! Rachael visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

Fantastic day to night activity and excellent service from the Design My Night team and from all of the bars involved! The bars were very welcoming and knowledgeable about their craft, letting you in on their unique takes on the drink! Would throughly recommend and can't wait for the next one!

Managed to get an espresso martini in Burlock... after that came the disappointment. Milk and Honey claimed not to have a coffee machine. Blind Pig and a few others were full. 68 and Boston would only seat in a designated area so we would have to pay full price because that area was full. Basement and Sate were not doing espresso martinis for the espresso martini fest. Not quite sure what the £10 was for... the bars were obviously skipping the coffee to save cash. I'd really like a refund.

very disappointing. I bought 5 tickets and despite visiting a number of bars we only had 1 espresso martini all night. The majority of the bars were offering alternatives or requesting full payment. The event was not advertised properly. visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

Great promotional idea - any venue that signs up gets increased clientele and increased awareness of their existence - "free" marketing. Do Old Fashioned,Mojito and Daquii festivals next! Gareth visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

I am sorry to say I was really disappointed with the organisation of the event Having travelled down from Oxford half the venues listed were not participating and the ones that were said they were at full capacity and some could only offer a full price espresso martini in another area of the venue?! So there was no saving on drinks and a pretty pointless festival that I was so looking forward to attending Kim visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

3 bars that we went to on the Saturday night which were on your list for this said they weren't participating it and were confused when we showed our digital passes. We ended up having one expresso martini in one of the bars so waste of money for a £10 ticket! visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

We attended the festival on Saturday and found it a bit of struggle to be honest. Some bars didn't seem prepared for it and others weren't participating until the evening Nichola visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

We loved bar hopping and tasting some amazing espresso martinis! The participating bars were fabulous. The only complaint was that some of them didn't offer the special price until 6 pm on the Saturday- it should be all day or else please indicate this in the app. Thank you! See you next year! visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

A really great idea and a fun way to visit bars you ordinarily might go in. Bars for future events may want to consider adding a non-caffeinated drink to the deal here and there alongside the many tasty espresso martinis to give people's hearts a little break! nikkicummins visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

Visiting bar I'd never even heard of was awesome. My friend and I enjoyed the different versions that each bar had to office, some being better than others! Would love to do it again :-). That's so much for organising it Corinne visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

Sadly the bar we went to and ordered from were not aware they were part of the festival but thankfully honoured the price. Couldn't find another bar that appeared on their map for central Londn so really didn't get my money's worth for the ticket price. Disappointing! visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

You didn't make it obvious that we'd need to book to get into some of the place, so after spending 30 mins getting to Milk & Honey, we were turned away. You didn't make it clear that some places had an "only 1 drink for £5, then the rest are full price" policy (e.g. at Well & Bucket). Other than that, fairly happy with the event.

We had a great day out but some of the bars let us down. One had no ingredients to make an expresso-martini, another would only serve us a drink if we took food too! Andrew visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017

The festival was fun but most of the bars had no idea it was even happening! It was sometimes difficult to explain in a loud bar why we were there! Charlotte visited ALL ACROSS TOWN on 10 Aug 2017
