Enjoy signature cocktails at this years Edinburgh Cocktail Week, which includes a lineup of 100 contributing bars in the city.
Edinburgh Cocktail Week is set to return in October this year and has announced that 100 bars throughout the city will participate in the event: making 2021 the biggest yet!
Taking place over two weeks this year from Monday 11th – Sunday 24th of October, those with an event wristband will be able to enjoy exclusive £4 signature cocktails at each of the participating venues, a lineup of favourites both old and new.
House of Gods, Juniper, The Barologist, The Printing Press, Three Marys, and many more will all be taking part for the first time this year.
Some of Edinburgh’s most popular institutions will also be reappearing this year, including Tigerlily, Cold Town Bar, Copper Blossom and SkyBar to name but a few.
Alongside the massive line-up of bars you can visit, wristband holders will be able to head over to the Cocktail Village at Festival Square, which offers £4 cocktails from 20 pop-up bars alongside live music, street food and entertainment.
A venue to look out for this year though is Ooh Mami, found in Bernard Street, Leith, which is famed for their Asian Fusion cuisine but we are told are offering some amazing cocktails.
Edinburgh Cocktail Week’s Gary Anderson said: “After what has been a tumultuous year, the return of Edinburgh Cocktail Week has been welcomed by bars across the city. As well as welcoming more bars, we have extended this year’s festival to two weeks to spread footfall, helping us to deliver a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience in the Cocktail Village and in the participating bars and pop-ups around the city."
"We have also increased the size of the Cocktail Village to allow for social distancing and added in additional ventilation and a completely transparent roof to allow in more fresh air and natural light - measures we know help keep people safe and give extra confidence in attending.”
In addition to the Cocktail Village and 100 participating bars, a programme of events and experiences will run throughout Edinburgh Cocktail Week 2021, the full programme of which will be unveiled in September.
A series of ‘Prestigious Experiences’ is also being introduced to the festival in collaboration with the city’s most exclusive venues and award-winning mixologists.
