At House of Coco we are always banging on about our love of cocktails (we promise we don’t have a drink problem). So when we heard that Cocktails in the City Leeds was returning on March 26th we were thrilled to say the least. Cue all of our team frantically putting in a holiday request for March 27th!
Now YOU are invited to enjoy the very finest cocktails in the most unusual spaces as we fling open the doors to all the secret rooms hidden around the historical labyrinth that is the Leeds Town Hall.
With cocktails in the clock tower, prohibition drinks in the courtroom, secret bars in the Victorian cells and a street food market in the crypt curated by the exciting new Leeds Indie Food Festival the night promises an evening of discovery and wonder.
Twenty hand-picked bars will be “popping up” in the Great Hall with an exciting new selection of this seasons must drink cocktails created especially for the show.
Andrew Scutts, organiser of the show comments, “Leeds Town Hall has an amazing array of unique spaces that we are excited to be using for extraordinary tastings and experiences. With some great new bars, exciting street food and music we look forward to an even bigger and better 2015 following the success of last year”.
A full list of confirmed bars will be released shortly.
Tickets are £10 and include one cocktail, cocktail booklet, main stage demonstrations.
Additional cocktails, food and extraordinary tastings are £6
