Hannah Sharman-Cox and Siobhan Payne aka the masterminds behind London Cocktail Week are really spoiling us. Not only are they planning a whole month of cocktail-loving goodness for LCW in October (the largest of its kind in the world btw), but for the first time they’ll be bringing the capital to life with a one-off, week-long Warm Up festival in July. Whoop, whoop!
That means cocktail lovers have another opportunity to sip tip-top tipples from some of the best bars in London for the amazing price of £7. It’s a win-win sitch for all concerned. You get a fantastic drink for an absolute snip and the 30 participating bars – each chosen because they had to remain closed longest as they don’t have outside space – get much needed revenue to help them get back on track. Result!
The festival runs from 5-11 July with £7 cocktails available in an array of our faves including Swift Shoreditch, Callooh Callay, Homeboy, Happiness Forgets, Opium, Blind Pig and Shrub & Shutter. You’ll need a £15 wristband to qualify, which is easy enough, get yours at londoncocktailweek.com. And the good news is, if you sign up early doors not only does said wristband entitle you to the Warm Up festival in July, you can use it for £7 cocktails in 250 London bars throughout the month of October. Happy days…
