From October 3 -9 Old Spitalfields Market, usually home to antique dealers and speciality stalls, will become a huge week-long cocktail village across the entire market space. Visitors can explore a maze of bespoke pop-up bars, trucks, vans and even bicycles – all serving up their specially created cocktails at just £5 for festival pass holders.
From refreshing vodka tipples to fruit liqueurs and bracing pick-me-ups, the market will be a heady explosion of the best drinks in London, with delicious street food stalls interspersing the medley of boozy flavours.
Open all week-long, get ready to party at the biggest cocktail market the city (and probably the world!) has ever seen!
Don’t forget – to get involved in the festivities you need to buy a festival pass. They cost £10 and are available to buy online. It’s important to buy your pass BEFORE the week to beat the queues. To go inside the cocktail village, attend events and access the discounts and offers all you have to do is show your pass. It’s you way in, and trust us when there’s this many cocktails, being on the inside is way more fun.
