Last year Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend was so bangin’ that a few bars ran out of their signature cocktails.
As it happens, Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend is becoming Edinburgh Cocktail Week. Woohoo!
Block out Monday 15th October to Sunday 21st October for the week long gin fest. Over 80 of Edinburgh’s best cocktail bars will be back again to dazzle you with the tastiest cocktails this side of the border.
While the inaugural event last October saw an incredible 8,000 ginthusiasts flock to the capital, this year it’s set to be an even grander affair.
Expect a Cocktail Village at Festival Square, which is free to enter with a wristband.
Enclosed within a marquee, this brand new addition will act as the social hub of the week-long cocktail celebrations, where attendees can meet up with friends and catch up over £4 cocktails from 15 pop-up bars.
