There’s so much to sip, sample and socialise your way around at this year’s Edinburgh Cocktail Week, 15th – 21st October.
Buy a wristband and enjoy £4 signature cocktails at over 80 bars across the city and in the new Cocktail Village at Festival Square on Lothian Road – it’s packed with 15 pop-ups bars, masterclasses, live music and DJs.
There’s also introduced a ‘Secret Spirits Study’ on Queen Street – a masterclass hub by day and free-entry underground speakeasy by night PLUS a week-long programme of events & parties for you to hop between on your cocktail adventure around the city!
• Weekday Wristband £6 (valid 5 days, Mon – Fri)
• Weekend Wristband £8 (valid 2 days, Sat & Sun)
Entry to the Cocktail Village (open 12pm – 11pm) is FREE with an ECW wristband. Inside you’ll find 15 individually themed pop-up bars serving £4 cocktails including Belvedere Vodka, Edinburgh Gin, Johnnie Walker, Poco Prosecco, Rock Rose Gin, Grey Goose Vodka, The Herringbone Horsebox, and a special ‘Golden Ticket’ themed bar from The Pop-Up Geeks (the brains behind the Harry Potter bar). It’s also beautifully decorated in the style of an Autumn Garden to make you feel like you’re at an outdoor festival, while being in the comfort of an enclosed marquee. Come hangout with us!
Throughout the week they also have a programme of free-entry parties and events for you to hop between on your cocktail adventure around the city, with Absolut Vodka kicking off the celebrations with a Porn Star Martini Party at 4042 on Monday 15th October. There’s also a sleepover themed Tequila Party at Tonic with Altos Tequila on Thursday 18th, and a week-long programme of tastings, competitions, masterclasses and gin debauchery with Pickering’s Gin at Brewhemia.
And the benefits of an ECW wristband don’t end there: wristband-holders can also enjoy offers on beauty treatments at NOW by One Spa, promotions at the ECW Bottle Shops (Royal Mile Whiskies and Drinkmonger), 50% off a ride with mytaxi, and free entry before midnight to Edinburgh’s top late-night venues including Lulu, 4042 and Shanghai.
