Bristol Cocktail Weekend: how to get exclusive £4 cocktails in bars across Bristol

Bristol Cocktail Weekend: how to get exclusive £4 cocktails in bars across Bristol

Posted on: 11 Sep 2019

Bristol loves a good cocktail - a quick trip to the city centre will tell you as much.  

 

But cocktails are a treat, right? At £7 or more a pop, they’re certainly not the cheapest drink at the bar.

 

Enter Bristol Cocktail Weekend. 

Bristol Cocktail Weekend 2019: 27 - 29 September

Between 27 and 29 September, Bristol has the chance to enjoy dozens of the city’s favourite cocktail bars without breaking the bank. Here’s how.

 

With the Bristol Cocktail Weekend wristband, cocktail lovers will be able to access discounted, signature cocktails in participating bars across the city.

 

Forget the £9 kind-of-average-martini: each BCW cocktail will be available for just £4. That’s cheaper than a pint!

 

And these discounted cocktails won’t come plucked from an existing menu, either. Each bar has created its very own cocktail, especially for Bristol Cocktail Weekend.

Flipside Cocktail Club’s exclusive cocktail is the ‘High Life’ made with Dead Man’s Finger Hemp Rum

So, who’s taking part?

 

From Flipside Cocktail Club on Whiteladies Road to Aluna down at the Harbourside, there are over 20 cocktail bars participating in Bristol Cocktail Weekend. Find the full list here.

 

Wristband-holders will also receive a Bristol Cocktail Weekend map to help navigate their mixology misadventures.

 

Adding a little extra sparkle to the proceedings are the BCW add-on masterclasses.

Blue Bird Tea

Our favourite? It has to be the sampling session dedicated to the next craze- tea-infused gin. Join the masterclass on Saturday 28 September at Bird and Blend Tea on Park Street. Book in here. 

 

Sound good? Exclusive £4 always sound good. Here’s how to get involved.

 

Grab an e-ticket for just £10. Then between 27 and 29 September 2019, head to Bristol Cocktail Weekend HQ (or Bristol’s Hotel du Vin) to collect your wristband. At HQ, you’ll be treated to a Brockmans G’n’T!

 

Collect your wristband from Bristol Cocktail Weekend HQ between 12:00 and 20:00 on Friday and Saturday, and between 12:00 and 16:00 on Sunday. 


So, what are you waiting for? Get ready for a city cocktail crawl for half the usual price. It's the best kind of payday treat!
