The London Cocktail Week 2018 hitlist

Every year since 2010, the capital’s best-known bartenders have marked the start of October with London Cocktail Week; a series of collaborations, guest residencies and special drinks offers.

The week-long event is a celebration of cocktail culture, offering a chance to try some of the capital’s best drinks at London’s top bars at discounted prices, encouraging new audiences to switch from their usual drinks order to something a little more complex.

Drinkers can get a LCW pass from events group DrinkUp’s website for £10, which entitles them to offers at bars, masterclasses, parties, and pop-ups around the city, as well as unlimited entry to the Cocktail Village — the event’s headquarters at east London’s Old Truman Brewery.

London Cocktail Week allows bartenders and bar owners to sell cocktails short and long on their drinks lists for just £6 to anyone with a pass.

London Cocktail week has expanded rapidly during its nine-year run, this year including more than 300 bars across the capital, compared to just 50 when it launched.

We’ve rounded up our pick of the cocktails and parties you need to seek out this year, based on the biggest trends in London’s bar scene right now.

From sober serves to rum deals, this is the drinks business‘ 2018 London Cocktail Week hitlist.
