London Cocktail Week

Time Out says

Get ready to be shaken and stirred, because London’s annual celebration of the perfectly mixed spirit is back. A £10 digital pass entitles you to £6 cocktails in many of the capital’s best bars all week across an elongated 10-day week (to celebrate the fact that it's LCW's 10th anniversary). It'll also get you into the immersive ‘Cocktail Village’, which this year sits inside the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.  

A £10 pass will get you a mammoth amount for your money. Along with access to the Cocktail Village, over 300 of the capital's best bars will be offering up specially created cocktails for just £6. It gives you the chance to do a cocktail crawl or just slope into top spots like Dalston Mezcal joint Hacha, London Bridge's tropical Nine Lives and the iconic Mayfair Sketch.

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!

Looking forward to trying a unique 'Little Bay' cocktail at Little Bay Farringdon in Clerkenwell.

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?

It was my first time at the London Cocktail Week and I absolutely loved it! For £10, you get discounts at 100s of cocktail bars (each bar selects a cocktail that is priced at £6) and access to lots of free activities. We did the Cointreau sidecar tour of Spitalfields which was a lot of fun and tried a lot of bars we didn't know, best discoveries being TT Liquor, Iron Stag and Happiness Forgets. I just used my cocktail pass at the weekend but next year I will make sure to use it during the week as well because there was so much to discover! Well done LCW!

Yes yes yes! So well organised, amazing bars, drinks and everyone put so much effort in. Good selection of food too. I can't wait for next year

The Schwepp's pop up at the Alchemy Bar during London Cocktail Week was brilliant.  It was innovative, funny and a very boozy affair.  The set-up was great and the staff were fantastic.  The bar in itself was lovely, but the experience was well-worth doing and my friends and I had a lot of fun doing various gin-related experiments.


They only time I can try out London's best cocktails bars, yes 7 tales  have you in my sight!!


God 3rd Oct can not come soon enough!! I love trying some cocktail bars, not sure ill get through 250!

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.
