Meet the bartenders at the top of their game and look on as experienced mixologists muddle together ingredients to create liquid delights, all against the beautiful backdrop of Bedford Square Gardens.
Each weekend comes brandished with a different theme. First up, The Bars are Back (Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 June) is a fittingly titled celebration of the reopening of London's bar scene, where visitors can expect to find the champagne flowing as well as lovingly designed pours from stalwarts of the city's cocktail scene: Coupette, Nightjar, Bar Swift and Bourne & Hollingsworth.
A World of Cocktails (Friday 23 to Saturday 24 July) is the internationally focused arm of the event and a chance to introduce the palate to global flavours and unusual delicacies from the likes of tiki-themed Laki Kane, Swedish export Kosmopol, Mexican favourite Café Pacifico and walk-in catalogue of rare spirits TT Liquor.
Last but not least, on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 August, is Festival of Drinks – The Ultimate Cocktail Experience. Expect festival vibes, interactive experiences, live music led by The Piano Works, street food from Club Mexicana, and games. Bars to make a beeline for include London Cocktail Club, Barrio Bars and Callooh Callay.
Entry tickets include a complimentary cocktail of your choice upon arrival.
