London Cocktail Week 2012
Now into its third year, London Cocktail Week is a celebration of London's unrivalled cocktail culture. With a whole host of events running across the city over the course of the week, the centre of this showcase event is at Seven Dials in Covent Garden; this London Cocktail Week pop-up shop is the place to get your wristband (£4 in advance, £10 after), then afterwards proceed to venture across London on the Cocktail Tours (on their vintage routemaster buses), taking advantage of the long list of partner bars offering £4 cocktails for the week. If bus tours aren't your thing however, you can buy a wristband and book for the parties and events that you want to attend during the week.
As well as getting the public to enjoy London's fantastic range of cocktail bars and parties the event also focuses on master classes and seminars, in a bid to teach novices and professionals alike more weird and wonderful tricks about how to make the perfect cocktails.
London Cocktail Week 2012: a week full of cocktails in London!
Some of the festival's flagship events are focused in a very concentrated area, the historic and beautiful Seven Dials area of Covent Garden. However the range of London Cocktail Week events will extend far beyond this small corner of London with bars in Shoreditch, Fitzrovia, Soho, Notting Hill, Camden and Canary Wharf all taking part in this homage to the glamorous cocktail. With some big drinks companies such as Cointreau, Absolut Vodka, Bacardi and Grand Marnier putting their names to the event, this is bound to be the biggest and best London Cocktail Week yet and we urge you not to miss out.
