Sixteen bars, two evenings, one landmark venue.

The UK’s leading cocktail festival is back to deliver a double header of cocktail creativity in one of the world’s finest neoclassical buildings, St George’s Hall. Secret speakeasies, members bars, party bars and glamorous institutions are coming together in pop-up form to celebrate the quality and diversity of Liverpool’s world class cocktail scene on October 12th and 13th.

From the Albert Docks to The Baltic Triangle and on to popular Seel Street all in just a few short sips, guests are invited to get shoulder-to-shoulder with the city’s leading bartenders to celebrate the craft of the cocktail. From the decadent Belle Epoque period of the late 1800’s through prohibition, retro cocktails and modern drinks, guests will be taken on a journey through the golden ages of the cocktail under the expert guidance of bars including Berry and Rye, 81 LTD, Filter and Fox and The Alchemist.

Guests will also be able to enjoy a new immersive drinks experience at Cocktails in the City. The Tasting Rooms hosted in partnership with leading online drinks retailer, is a 30-minute intimate series of tasting sessions with three craft producers in a private setting. Additional experiences also include interactive Espresso Martini masterclasses with Tia Maria and The Coffee Project, and foraged cocktails with The Botanist Gin.

Founder Andrew Scutts comments:

“After an incredible launch in 2017 we are delighted to be returning in 2018 in the stunning surroundings of St George’s Hall. With a leading line-up of bars and a great selection of unique drinking experiences we can’t wait to build upon the success of last year”
