London Cocktail Week is back!

Listen up G&T lovers, London Cocktail week is back and we want to give you the lowdown on what’s occurring gin-wise. There’s lots going on and we for one can’t wait to get involved!

But the fun doesn’t stop there, as well as these events the festival’s organisers DrinkUp.London, have hand selected 300 of the best bars across the whole city to get involved. Each one of these bars will be creating a drink that reflects what they’re all about, and so you’re not bouncing from pub to pub trying to find a cocktail that suits you, you can check who’s serving what using the DrinkUp.London app.

So I bet you’re thinking ‘how much is this going to set me back?’ Well I can tell you that for the price of a digital wrist band – £10! – you can get into the Cocktail Village that covers three spaces in the heart of Brick Lane for free AND the cocktails created for LCW at these 300 bars are only £6!!!

 

Check out the 300 participating bars here!

 

So, let’s get onto the good stuff … the gin. Here is what each of the three spaces are hosting:
