Top picks for London Cocktail Week 2020

28th September, 2020 by Nicola Carruthers

This year’s London Cocktail Week will take over the entire month of October and will put bars at the heart of the festival. We present some of the highlights to look forward to at the 2020 event.

London Cocktail Week will be held across the whole of October for the first time

Now in its 11th year, London Cocktail Week will see brands and bar teams come together in London to host a number of cocktail events, food and drink pairings, masterclasses and activations across the capital.

The organisers have implemented several changes to this year’s festival due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Cocktail Village will not feature in this year’s event. Instead, focus will be directed towards supporting partnering venues that are often small owner-operated establishments who have been severely hit by the pandemic.

Wristbands are free for those who work in hospitality. Members of the public can purchase a wristband for £15 (US$19).

Festivalgoers will receive access to The Cocktail Tours, which offer signature serves from hundreds of bars across the city for £6 (US$7.70). London Cocktail Week at Home has also been launched to offer the signature serves to homes nationwide in partnership with delivery service The Drinks Drop.

Drinks companies Brown-Forman, Diageo, Edrington-Beam Suntory, Moët Hennessy and Bacardi, along with 30 individual brands, will offer a timetable of masterclasses and immersive experiences.
