A city-wide celebration of cocktails in Europe's biggest and best cocktail capital screams out for more than a mere week to properly explore. Happily, for 2021, the world's biggest cocktail festival is once again extended to the whole month of October.
This means a £15 wristband will enable you to enjoy £7 cocktails for the whole month of October in a carefully selected collection of hundreds of London's best bars including festival favourites Tāyer+Elementary, Blue Bar at The Berkeley, Artesian at The Langham, Lyaness, Sketch and Three Sheets alongside brand-new openings such as Bar La Rampa, Sucre and Abajo, Park Row and Hacha Brixton.
For 2021, London Cocktail Week has partnered with Covent Garden to launch The Essence House, a two-floor drinks experience in Carriage Hall on Covent Garden's Floral Street. The heart of the Covent Garden hub, the space will incorporate fully immersive, multi-sensory experiences alongside London Cocktail Week's main bar showcasing the cocktails served by some of the world's best bar bartenders.
The festival includes a packed timetable of masterclasses, immersive pop-ups, bar takeovers, cocktail dinners and parties for everyone from amateur cocktail makers to seasoned professionals at venues across London.
