Cocktails are quite possibly one of the best creations and they may just be one out there for everyone. Luckily for weegies, the city is hosting a week dedicated to splendid and mouth-watering cocktails created by local bars, restaurants, hotels and more.
Taking place from April 19 to April 28, Glasgow Cocktail Week is set to bring the party with a jam-packed line-up of fun immersive events, secret takeovers, brunches, masterclasses and immersive tastings announced in partnership with famous alcohol brands. Plus, the organisers are introducing a secret hub that will add an element of mystery and luxury, providing a unique space for exclusive events and a memorable month for cocktail aficionados.
Celebrating cocktail culture across the city, almost 20 of Glasgow’s most-loved venues are taking part to bring memorable moments and delicious drinks to the festival including popular cocktail hangouts, such as Anchor Line, modern Scottish pub, The Gate, sky-high venue VEGA, negroni and wine bar Malo.
A full schedule full of participating bars, immersive events, masterclasses and secret takeovers will be released next month. Ticket holders will once again have access to hundreds of exclusive discounted cocktails and unlock Glasgow Cocktail Week menus featuring imaginative serves with their wristbands at a host of top venues across the city.
A new tourism partnership with the city’s Regional Food Group, Experience Glasgow Food & Drink is also on the horizon with the festival to develop the first-ever Glasgow Cocktail Trail with a digital map, trail and website. Experience Glasgow already offers a free Glasgow Beer Trail and Glasgow Coffee Trail for drink lovers to enjoy.
