Cocktails in the City returns to Bristol in 2017

Posted on: 22 Aug 2017

Bristol’s cocktail scene is one of the most innovative and exciting in the country, so it’s no surprise that the scene is thriving. With such a wide selection of fantastic cocktail bars, it can be really tricky to decide where to go... But have no fear, Cocktails in the City is coming to your rescue!

Cocktails in the City Bristol

Launched in 2012, Cocktails in the City has welcomed over 35,000 guests through their doors mixing up 110,000 cocktails in partnership with 200 bars across the country. Celebrating their fifth Anniversary in 2017, Cocktails in the City now operates eight events in seven cities around the UK and is launching in Los Angeles in October 2017.


Cocktails in the City is making its return to Bristol on Friday 15th September. After five years of touring the country, the event is back, bringing 16 of Bristol’s best bars together under one roof. Held at The Passenger Shed next to Bristol Temple Meads; guests will be able to indulge in specially-designed cocktails by the likes of The Milk Thistle, Red Light, Hyde & Co, Her Majesty’s Secret Service and Harvey Nichols Second Floor Restaurant and Bar.


Cocktail lovers will be invited to discover something different and learn about the art of mixology with interactive masterclasses, games, and food and drink pairing experiences throughout the night. Non-drinkers are well catered for too, with each bar having a non-alcoholic offering.


Nathan Lee of The Milk Thistle says, “We really enjoyed taking part in the inaugural Cocktails in the City Bristol event a few years ago. Cocktails in the City is definitely the best consumer cocktail event this city has seen and we’re delighted to see it return.”


Accompanying the array of cocktails will be plenty of delicious food from a selection of Bristol’s favourite street food vendors, Bambalan, Eatchu and AlpMac. Guy Siddall from Bristol Gyoza restaurant Eatchu comments, “Bristol’s booming independent food scene is creating a lot of buzz so we were delighted to be approached by Cocktails in the City. A chance to pair our gyoza up with some amazing and innovative cocktails, what could be better?”


The return of Cocktails in the City to Bristol follows successful events in London, Leeds and Manchester and precedes an inaugural event in L.A later in the year. Around 850 people are expected to attend the event which costs £12 a ticket and includes a welcome cocktail on entry. Tickets are available to buy now
