We’ve been lucky enough to experience Cocktails in the City firsthand, from Leeds to Manchester, but now we’ve got the sneak preview of the London edition … and boy, is it good. On 18-19 September, at The Grand Hall in St Pancras, you can get a taste of the greatest cocktails from the city’s finest bars and bartenders. From the Tiki chaps at Trailer Happiness to the party kids of London Cocktail Club, there’s more than enough to satisfy all your boozy desires.
Try the sippable summer servings courtesy of Chase Marmalade Vodka, which will come alongside some seriously indulgent pampering courtesy of Harvey Nichols. Then it’s time to taste the elegant and refined Beluga Vodka Caviar Martinis from the talented gents of The Rivoli Bar at The Ritz. And then … well, there’s more than enough masterpieces to keep you busy on the night.
You’ll even get to try out the offerings of a few brand new bars that haven’t opened their doors yet, like The Alchemist and Call Me Mr Lucky. And we can confidently tell you — you’re in for a treat.
Best Bars tip: For £12, you get a cocktail on arrival, access to the biggest party in London, tutored masterclasses, product sampling and on the day additional drinks will cost £7. What else do we need to say? Get your tickets now!
