Birmingham Cocktail Weekend Is Back!
It’s the news that Birmingham’s cocktail-connoisseurs have been waiting for: after a tremendously successful launch last year, Birmingham Cocktail Weekend is back in full-force for 2016. Taking the city by storm for the second year running, this three-day event will see participating venues concoct a new and exclusive £4 cocktail, available only from 15-17 July.
This year, the event is bigger and better with around 30 of Birmingham’s best-loved venues confirmed to take part. Island Bar will be playing host to the Jim Beam Hub where revellers can collect their wristbands and guidebooks before beginning their cocktail expedition.
Once wristbands are in place, BCW attendees will be able to branch out across Birmingham. Participating venues include New Alexandra Theatre, the newly refurbished Mailbox with Gas Street Social, Malmaison, Aluna, Bar Epernay, Pennyblacks, Marco Pierre White’s, and Harvey Nichols all taking part this year as well as the Hyatt Regency’s Gentleman & Scholar pub, Pushkar, and Rub Smokehouse. Across the city Hotel du Vin, Great Western Arcade’s 1847, Amantia, Cosy Club and the Lost & Found will all join in on the action.
Wristbands will be available for purchase online from 1 March, costing only £6! Wristbands will not only allow the wearer to enjoy the exclusive signature cocktail in each venue for just £4, but will also grant access to all of the great free tastings, master- classes and exclusive events too.
