Glasgow Cocktail Week has started today with a full city cocktail takeover over the next ten days. To celebrate the organisers have released three cocktail tours in partnership with Bacardi for guests to explore some of the city’s best bars including The Finnieston, Radisson Red, Spiritualist, Jack’s Bar at Dakota and the sky-high VEGA.
With over 47 of Glasgow’s most loved venues taking part, you’re invited to plan your cocktail adventure and get exploring the city one sip at a time. Ticket holders can enjoy cocktail sampling, exciting events and access to 100s of exclusively discounted cocktails and unlock Glasgow Cocktail Week menus featuring imaginative £5 serves at a host of top venues across the city.
There are three cocktail trails as part of Glasgow Cocktail Week for you to explore between September 24 and October 2.
The Merchant City / East tour features a raft of new venues including Wunderbar, Kong, NQ64, Ralph & Finns and The Gate where fans will find exclusive and interesting cocktails on the menu including Cocktail Cantina at Saint Luke’s, offering tequila and tacos from a seriously cool and brightly coloured Cantina.
If you fancy heading west of the city, try the City/ West tour featuring The Locale, Moxy hotel, El Jefe’s, Glasgow Cocktail Club and Oran Mor to name a few.
As well as trails, you’ll also find memorable moments with a raft of fun events created exclusively for Glasgow Cocktail Week to celebrate cocktail culture in the city including silent disco drinks at VEGA, a fashion brunch at Ralph & Finn’s, some creative masterclasses at Platform and Bowlarama, learning how to craft the perfect mojito or daiquiri.
Moreover, a bespoke vodka bar is set to arrive for the occasion; a former boulangerie van seating inside the Grey Goose Camionnette is limited to only two people. The world’s smallest martini bar has been touring around Europe and is now making its way to Merchant City, just outside The Dam, to cheer up vodka lovers.
Guests that purchase an All Access ticket will enjoy one session at the silent disco in the sky at VEGA, a wristband to unlock exclusive menus and £5 drinks in the festival and your pick of the events found here. Choose to go as many as you wish as part of your ticket price.
