Cocktails in the City: Mayfair

What All you cocktail swiggers out there will be pleased to know that Cocktails in the City are back for another three day cocktail party from 10th-12th March in one of Mayfair’s’ most beautiful Grade II listed buildings. Twenty pop up bars will be spread over four floors, and this year that includes an international floor with guest mixologists from Amsterdam and Paris. Don’t miss your chance to lap up some of London’s tastiest tipples all under one roof. Another exciting edition for this year are the bespoke cocktail master classes that will be taking place on Thursday and Friday. They all look pretty impressive. I’ve added “What if Tequila were British?” with Oxo Tower and Patron Tequila, as well as “Tales of the Sazera” with Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar and Rittenhouse Rye/Maxime Trijol to my Filofax. I’m heading down ASAP on the Thursday, so can expect another tragic weekday hangover on Friday. Why wait?! Where One Mayfair Cost Tickets are £15 and can be found here:
