About London Cocktail Week
Now in its 6th year, London Cocktail Week is the biggest drinks festival in the UK and has grown to attract record numbers. It was created as a chance to open the doors to some of London’s best venues and showcase the best bartenders and spirits brands to an increasingly large number of willing consumers, by partnering with hundreds of bars across the capital to offer £5 Signature Cocktails to those wearing wristbands. This year, for the first time, the festival is also taking over Old Spitalfields Market to create the London Cocktail Week Village – a maze of bespoke pop-up bars, trucks, vans and even bicycles which will be serving up their specially created cocktails at just £5 for wristband wearers.

The festival comes from the same team behind London Wine Week, now in its third year, and London Beer Week, which launched in February 2015. These all sit under the Drink Up.London umbrella, which is headed up by London Cocktail Week founder Hannah Sharman-Cox.
