London Cocktail Week has announced a one-off Warm-Up festival, taking place July 5th through 21st. A mini version of the main event, the London Cocktail Week Warm-Up will see 30 of London’s best hidden bars create special £7 cocktails for those who buya London Cocktail Week 2021 wristband early – offering drink fans an opportunity to celebrate the restrictions lifting in the summer.
Each venue taking part in the London Cocktail Week Warm-Up has been hand-picked for their excellence, but also chosen specifically because they have no outside space and so have had to stay closed the longest. The mini-festival is not only a chance to make up for lost time – but also to support those bars within London’s hospitality scene that need it the most.
Included in the week-long event are Satan’s Whiskers, Coupette, Happiness Forgets, Swift Shoreditch, Oriole, Blind Pig, Shrub & Shutter, Funkidory, Little Mercies, CalloohCallay, Disrepute, Homeboy, and more.
Wristbands are £15 and will be valid for both the London Cocktail Week Warm-Up in July and for the main London Cocktail Week festival which has once again been extended to the entire month of October.
Guests can purchase London Cocktail Week wristbands via the website and collect them from any one of the participating venues while the festival is taking place.
They will then enjoy a full week of special Signature Cocktails for just £7 in each of the 30 venues – a taster of what’s in store for October, when 250 of London’s best bars will be throwing open their doors to offer £7 cocktails to wristband wearers for the entire month – all alongside a full program of events.
In 2020 London Cocktail Week was a lifeline to the capital’s bar scene. This year, once again the festival is committed to helping the hospitality industry bounce back by giving people a reason to get back into enjoying London’s cocktail culture and celebrate a new beginning.
