NEW FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT: LONDON COCKTAIL WEEK WARM-UP! 

Support London’s best-hidden bars and make up for lost time at the  London Cocktail Week Warm-Up – A reopening celebration! 

Dates: 05-11 July 2021 

For the first time, London Cocktail Week – the biggest city-wide celebration of cocktails in the world – has announced a one-off Warm-Up festival, taking place 05-11 July 2021.

A mini version of the main event. The London Cocktail Week Warm-Up will see 30 of London’s best-hidden bars creating special £7 cocktails for those who buy a London Cocktail Week 2021 wristband early. Offering cocktail lovers an opportunity to celebrate the restrictions lifting in the summer.

Each venue taking part in the London Cocktail Week Warm-Up has been hand-picked for its excellence.


Also chosen specifically because they have no outside space and so have had to stay closed the longest. The mini-festival is not only a chance to make up for lost time. It’s also to support those bars within London’s hospitality scene that need it the most. 

Take a week to explore and celebrate the basement bars and hidden gems that have had to stay closed during lockdown. Expect to raise a glass at venues stretching right across the capital including; Satan’s Whiskers, Coupette, Happiness Forgets, Swift Shoreditch, Oriole, Blind Pig, Shrub & Shutter, Funkidory, Little Mercies, CalloohCallay, Disrepute, Homeboy and more! 

Wristbands are £15 and will be valid for both the London Cocktail Week Warm-Up in July. AND for the main London Cocktail Week festival which has once again been extended to the entire month of October.

London Cocktail Week

In 2020 London Cocktail Week was a lifeline to the capital’s bar scene. This year, once again the festival is committed to helping the hospitality industry bounce back. Giving people a reason to get back into enjoying London’s unrivalled cocktail culture and celebrate a new beginning.

London Cocktail Week began in 2010 and is the biggest cocktail festival of its kind in the world. To date, the festival has welcomed hundreds of thousands of guests, inspired a new generation of Londoners to demand better drinking experiences and injected millions of pounds of revenue directly back into the London hospitality trade. London Cocktail Week was named within the top 20 most defining moments of the London bar scene over the last 20 years by Cocktail Credentials and won “Best Drinks Event” at The Drinks Business Awards. On an international stage, the festival has become a blueprint for multiple Cocktail Weeks across the world and is universally recognised to be the best example of a cocktail festival globally.
