Get ready to tap that tipple as this October, London Cocktail Week returns for another week-long celebration of the capital's best mixology. As per last year, there are no wristbands to be had, with festival passes once again available through the DrinkUp.London app. A £10 pass will give drink aficionados access to all sorts of fabulous pop-up cocktail bars, £6 cocktails, parties and entry to the Cocktail Village, this year located at the Old Truman Brewery.
If supping on cocktails for a week isn't luxe enough for you, this year London Cocktail Week will be offering VIP packages for the first time. These packages will give VIP-ers fast-track entrance to the Cocktail Village, a free drink and access to special VIP-only areas. It'll make that Tom Collins taste that much sweeter.
If you're content with a £10 pass, there's still a mammoth amount for your money. Along with access to the Cocktail Village, over 300 of the capital's best bars will be roffering up specially created cocktails, also for just £6. It gives you the chance to slope into spots like The Booking Office, cocktail innovator Tony Conigliaro's Gazelle or Satan's Whiskers in Bethnal Green, and see what delectable drinks they have to offer for just six quid.
In the heart of things in Brick Lane there'll be three different areas – Back Yard Market, Brick Lane Yard and The Boiler House – all giving you a chance to taste some tipples from the biggest names in mixology. And this year, guests even have the chance to learn about the wizardry of cocktail-making with ‘The Cocktail Experiments’ – time to perfect the art of making that martini.

Previously this has been great, but this year what a rip.... why has it gone up to £6 per cocktail PLUS £5 just to get into the hub?? Does that £5 include a cocktail?
God 3rd Oct can not come soon enough!! I love trying some cocktail bars, not sure ill get through 250!
Went over to Old Spitalfield Market and tried out some drinks from the small pop-up bars. Head over before you miss out!!!
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.
