London Cocktail Week and the Restaurant Festival
London just got tastier! We love October because it's an irrefutable excuse to indulge a little and discover some of the best bars and restaurants in London. With so many new and old places to discover it's hard to keep up with the best or the most recommended which is why London Cocktail Week and the Restaurant Festival make it so much easier to stay in the know. London Cocktail Week (6th-12th October) isn't just about drinking. It's about learning, participating and celebrating. With various events and activities going on like Masterclasses, Tasting sessions and Parties, even trade events if you're a professional - you can pick which you attend, or do them all! Dotted all over the city, the mini festival has teamed up with some of the best bars there are. From north to south of the river you can drink your way across town, being tended to by the best bar tenders, and entertained by the best entertainers. All you need to do is buy a Wristband (limited early birds are available if you get in quick!) and you'll be let into a fun members club for the week. Fancy sipping on delicious £4 cocktails, or shopping and sipping at exclusive sample sales in Covent Garden's iconic Seven Dials? We thought so. For the whole week your wristband will also grant you special deals and discounts in participating bars and outlets; including taster menus and special deals on your favourite bottle(s). Even pop-ups are in on it, too. All you need to do is purchase your ticket and book the events, offers, masterclasses parties you want and it's as simple as that! If you like all things gastronomic, London's Restaurant Festival is a must if you're in town, too. Kicking off a few days after London Cocktail Week, it will run from the 8th-27th October. So plenty of time to get tasting! A 'citywide celebration of eating out' it's great for both Londoners and visitors alike; after all, who doesn't mind a slap up meal every once in a while. To raise the profile of restaurants in London, this festival will celebrate chefs and restaurants by hosting events, tasting sessions and tours of some of the most popular eateries in the city. Get involved and get your ticket to discover the wide range of Events, Festival Menus and Side Orders to enjoy gourmet delights, charity dinners, film screenings and Shakespearean Sonnets.
