Cocktails In The City 2016: Let London’s best bars come to you at a festival of mixology
A must for all cocktail lovers this spring is the return of Cocktails In The City 2016. This celebration of cocktails sets up shop in cities across the UK throughout the year, with the London sojourn taking place over three days this March.
From 10-12 March 2016, Cocktails In The City will be taking place at the capital’s stunning Grade II-listed, Georgian venue One Mayfair. Twenty of London’s most exciting bars, as well as top establishments from Europe will be coming together in one space, essentially bringing the bars to you.
Produced by the Bourne & Hollingsworth Group (famous for their bars and restaurants, The Blitz Party and the Prohibition Party), the extravaganza is like a bar crawl without the hassle of moving from venue to venue. Cocktail aficionados will be able to try anything from classics like Bellinis and Mojitos to unique mixes using rare ingredients created by mixologists.
Entering One Mayfair, the grand hall will feature a combination of your favourite cocktail bars, while down in the atmospheric crypt will be London’s coolest new openings. Among the capital’s venues taking part include Cahoots, Coq D’Argent, Powder Keg Diplomacy, Reverend JW Simpson, Dishoom, Looking Glass Cocktail Club, Hush and The Whip.
Meanwhile, you’ll be able to drink your way around the world on the new ‘International Bars Floor’ on the mezzanine level, with Paris’s Little Red Door, Amsterdam’s Door 74 and Copenhagen’s Ruby represented.
And for those who like to line their stomach while drinking, you can enjoy food and drink with a view at the rooftop BBQ and bar or experience creative dining with a cocktail-inspired menu at the long feasting table in the Great Hall.
