Get ready to be shaken and stirred, because London’s annual celebration of the perfectly mixed spirit is back. A £10 wristband entitles you to £5 cocktails in many of the capital’s best bars all week. A new festival hub in Soho, the World Class House, offers retro and futuristic drinking experiences, while Old Spitalfields Market will be LCW party central.

Some of the special events worth planning for include classic cocktails made with vintage booze (1970s negroni, please) at Peg + Patriot, an LA takeover at White Lyan, rooftop gin masterclasses from Fever-Tree and a Patron Cocktail Lab with masterclasses from internationally renowned bartenders.

Afternoon!

I'm so happy to be writing this in my Pjs from my sofa! I was delighted when searching for something to do last night to find a London cocktail week event 10 mins walk from my house!

My first 'drink a long' movie last night at the Gorringe Park pub (one of my favourite locals) in Tooting was a blast. A delightful birthday treat from a friend but at £35 for 5 (proper) cocktails, some snacks accompanying Breakfast at Tiffanys, I think it's a bargain.

We pigged out on the new cinema menu - corn dogs are going to be my new addiction! (Not included in movie/cocktail deal)

Night kicked off around 745 with an espresso martini & cinnamon swirls which were followed at apposite moments with an old fashioned, a zombie (& some popcorn & peanut brittle (delist)), an aperol spritz & a planters punch! Not all would be choices I would make but they all worked perfectly and were delicious!

It's on every night so I'd urge you to get along! But if you're a lightweight like me you might want to plan a duvet day for the day after!

If anyone's reading this I'd love the cocktail recipes!

Do we even need to buy the wristbands? No one ever checks them, why did I buy it at all?

How can you include SushiSamba in the Dizzy Heights page? Yes, the view is fabulous. But the 2 cocktails me and my partner had were more ice than cocktail ingredients. They were very disappointing. The wine and champagne represented good value and you know what you are getting.
