Would you care to join me for a cocktail at The Ritz? And then how about if we head to The Ivy? Or we could try a tipple or two at Quo Vadis? And maybe a nightcap at Off Broadway… In what may just be the most sophisticated (not to mention easy to navigate) bar crawl ever, next week sees London’s best bars setting up shop for one night only at the first ever Cocktails in the City event.

Cocktails in the city

On September 26th, a handpicked selection of the Big Smoke’s finest establishments will be shaking up some seriously chic sips at the soirée, with tutored tastings and demonstrations on offer from only the bestest mixologists; think Disco Drinks workshops, gin tastings and Mad Men-themed cocktails courses. And just in case you get peckish (yes, you really should line your stomach if you’re downing the strong stuff), there’s BBQ fare aplenty from Bodeans or Salvador & Amanda’s dependably moreish tapas. Not to mention musical magic from the Horse Meat Disco team.

It’s basically about six months worth of nights out, in one show-stopping event. We’ll see you there. Buy your ticket for Cocktails in the City online here.
