Dates and Details for First Belfast Cocktail Weekend Announced

Cocktail lovers can look forward to a weekend of sipping, sampling and socialising around Belfast later this year, 3rd – 5th August, as details of the first Belfast Cocktail Weekend have been announced.

Over 30 of the capital’s top cocktail bars will take part in the event to showcase their mixology skills, with each designing a unique Signature Cocktail which wristband-wearers can enjoy for just £5 each.

Organiser of the event Gary Anderson commented… ‘If you love cocktails, then this is the event for you! It’s all about tasting your way around the city, discovering new bars & flavours, and feeling like you’re part of something exciting. For me, cocktails epitomise catching-up with friends, either after work on a Friday night or getting dressed-up at the weekend and hitting the town, and that’s what we hope to see. We’re working with the best brands and bars so all BCW cocktails are made using premium spirits and are shaken, stirred and strained to perfection.’

The list of participating bars and their signature cocktails is still top secret, and will be revealed over the coming months, with priority announcements given to those who have booked wristbands in advance.

Between their cocktail adventure around the city, wristband-wearers can also sign-up for masterclasses & tastings, enjoy entry to exclusive Belfast Cocktail Weekend spaces & events, and enjoy additional perks from many of the bars taking part.

BCW wristbands can be purchased online at and can be collected, along with a free guide, from the Belfast Cocktail Weekend Hub during the event. Then it’s time to go explore #BCW18!

Earlybird wristbands are on sale now for £5 each (normally £6) at
