This spring edition of Cocktails in the City is taking place at The Vaults, the multi-purpose venue within the arches beneath Waterloo Station. Here, several of London’s best bars are present in pop-up form, nestled in seven secret arches that have been transformed to serve up a variety of drinking experiences. Garnish your drinks from hanging plants in the Secret Garden, see how the industry's leading mixologists mix up cutting-edge serves in the The Experimental Lab or work your way through Italy's finest bars in the International Negroni Lounge.
Each bar will be creating three new drinks and pairing up with a spirits brand in the hope of securing your cocktail vote for the winning serve. Meaning you can enjoy London's easiest and most illustrious bars all under one roof.
Among the institutions making an appearance is popular Mexican restaurant-cum-bar Ella Canta, whose mixologists wowed the crowds at Cocktails in the City last summer with their pink margaritas and mezcal-based concoctions. Off-beat, Victorian-themed bar chain Mr. Fogg’s is also present, providing quirky takes on age-old classics. And, for those who’ve heard the hype surrounding Soho cocktail bar Cahoots, but haven’t fancied venturing underground to try it out, now’s your chance to sample its creations without sitting in its 1940s tube station setting.
Tickets to Cocktails in the City cost £20 and include a free cocktail of your choosing from any bar on site, plus a booklet guiding you through the offering from each bar. All subsequent cocktails cost £7.50.
