During London Cocktail Week in October, cocktail tours on original red Routemaster double-decker buses will visit more than 100 cocktail bars, each offering a bespoke drink for £4.
At special London Cocktail Week bus stops outside participating bars, bartenders will serve mini-cocktails to drinkers wearing a London Cocktail Week wristband while they wait for the bus.
London Cocktail Week will also include masterclasses in cocktail mixing, pop-up events and parties. Visitors to London can register for a free wristband until 10 September, after which they will cost £10. A London Cocktail Week wristband allows wearers discounted cocktails in participating bars and free transport on the dedicated buses. The buses will run every day from 6pm to midnight. Wristbands can be collected from the London Cocktail Week hub on the first floor bar in Selfridges, Oxford Street, which will be themed as a temporary speakeasy-style cocktail bar.
London Cocktail Week is now partnering with The Whisky Show at Vinopolis on 7–8 October and the UK RumFest at Olympia on 14–16 October.
