9 cool, tasty and interesting events to check out at London Cocktail Week 2019

Every year for the past decade, the capital’s best-known bartenders have marked the start of October with London Cocktail Week; a series of collaborations, guest residencies, drinks offers and unique ways to learn about booze.

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.

LCW kicks off at the Old Truman Brewery from 9-13 October, where 40 pop-up bars will be serving cocktails.

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.

The event has expanded rapidly during its 10-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 parties, masterclasses and activities you need to seek out this year.

From sober serves to sweet deals, this is the drinks business‘ 2019 London Cocktail Week hitlist.
