At Cocktails in the City we invite you to try something new, discover something different. As we look back on 2017 we wanted to raise a glass to some of the more unique experiences served up by our fine selection of bars and brands.
THE NORDIC ALLIANCE - LONDON ONE MARYLEBONE
As Scandinavian chic sweeps the nation we were delighted to work with Woodford Reserve and bring over three of the worlds top 50 bars from the Nordics. Ruby from Copenhagen, Linje Tio from Stockholm and Himkok from Oslo recreated their venues in pop up form and shook and stirred a combination of drinks that reflected each bars personality and philosophy to drinks.
GHETTO GOLF - LIVERPOOL
They say Rome wasn't built in a day. It probably would of been and looked a lot different had the team from Ghetto Golf been involved. In 2017 no bar or experience built such an epic space for the benefit of guests to CITC. They turned up the night before with a lot of wood and even more spray cans and by time Friday night came round at the inaugural CITC Liverpool a three hole taster course had been created and enjoyed by all. Ghetto Golf - we salute you and your partners Jim Beam Double Oak.
NIGHTCAP & VENUE 383 - EDINBURGH
Al-fresco and unplugged, guests to CITC Edinburgh were able to step out onto the lawns and enjoy great live music in partnership with highly acclaimed bar Nightcap and their new music venue 383 with Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whisky. The drinks were as tasty as the music was sublime.
COCKTAILS IN THE CLOCKTOWER WITH BLIND TŸGER - LEEDS
If you have a head for heights and bought a ticket early you might of been one of the lucky few who were able to ascend the 203 stairs into the heart of the Leeds Town Hall Clock Tower. With commanding views of Leeds our intrepid explorers were rewarded with tonics, tinctures and freshly carbonated G&T's with Blind Tÿger with Ableforth's Bathtub Gin.
MOVING THE ONES AND TWOS - LONDON SUMMER EDITION
Guests at our summer al-fresco experience could either hot step it to the Charleston courtesy of an immersive Gatsby performance hosted by Copperhead Gin and Nightjar or grab the earphones and dance the day away with good time bar Barrio and Havana Club. Great drinks and great moves were the order of the day this summer.
