Old Fashioned Week
Words by Difford's Guide
Cocktail enthusiasts around the world are invited to join the global buzz of Old Fashioned Week, happening from 30th October to 8th November 2020.
Launched in 2015 by Michael Landart of the Maria Loca bar in Paris, and Cyrille Hugon of Rhum Fest Paris, Old Fashioned Week is expanding. In just five years it has grown from 50 French bars in 2015, to 180 international bars in 2016, and 800 bars from all over the globe in 2017, with a focus on the world's most high-profile cocktail cities.
This year bars around the world will once again invite cocktail enthusiasts to get involved in this ever-expanding celebration and enjoy a classic Old Fashioned at participating bars.
