Imagine if 20 of London’s best bars were to pop up in a beautiful Georgian garden slap bang in the middle of London and bring you the al fresco cocktail experience of your dreams?
Well, you don’t have to imagine it anymore thanks to the genius team at Cocktails in the city who have transformed Bedford Square Garden into the ultimate summer cocktail paradise during August and September.
Food and Drink
Dubbed the London Summer series, it’s a delicious medley of street food, cocktails and live entertainment and a must-visit for fans of all things al fesco who want to make the most of the UK heatwave. Whatever you want from a drinks festival, Cocktails in the city deliver in abundance. Whilst you dawdle around the beautiful garden sampling the finest cocktails that London has to offer, you can also indulge in lip-smackingly delicious street food too. Gorge on the Bento box of your choice from Sticks ‘N’ Sushi or tuck into Cafe Pacificos’s Tacos and Burritos, loaded with a sensational guacamole and perfectly crunchy corn chips. And for those wanting something a bit more gourmet, Oficina 00’s show stopping pasta dishes which include fried ravioli and panko lasagna will have you queuing up for a second serving.
In addition to seriously bop-inducing live music, there is also the option of swaying your way around the garden courtesy of the silent disco . You can also learn a new skill (and also cool down) by taking part in the popular ice carving workshop, and the best part? You can use that ice in a bespoke cocktail that you can make yourself in the interactive cocktail making masterclass.
Music and Entertainment
If you’re able to drag yourself out of the comfy garden chairs, a game of shuffleboard where groups of up to 8 can participate definitely beckons for the more competitive amongst us whilst sparkly festival makeovers and pampering, courtesy of Chambord and Iris add a touch of glamour and sparkle to the day. As if that’s not enough, there are tasting stage talks aplenty throughout the day that you can pop into if you want to learn about different flavors, pick up some tips from the experts and be immersed into the world of cocktail making.
So if you’re in need of a summer plan, GRAB YOUR TICKETS now for the next installment of the Summer Series which is taking place 11th- 13th August. It’ll be a Summer Series with a twist, an ‘International Edition’ which promises to transport you around the globe with a diverse food and drinks offering. The best bit?
