London Cocktail Week launches one-off Warm-Up festival

01 June, 2021

For the first time, London Cocktail Week has announced a one-off Warm-Up festival, taking place 05-11 July 2021.

The London Cocktail Week Warm-Up will see 30 of London’s most reputable bars create specific £7 cocktails for those who buy a London Cocktail Week 2021 wristband early.

Each venue taking part in the London Cocktail Week Warm-Up has been chosen not only because of their high reputation within the trade, but because they have no outside space and therefore suffered most throughout the pandemic.

Participating bars include: Satan’s Whiskers, Coupette, Happiness Forgets, Swift Shoreditch, Oriole, Blind Pig, Shrub & Shutter, Funkidory, Little Mercies, Callooh Callay, Disrepute and Homeboy.

Wristbands cost £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.
