Leeds Loves Cocktails - the city's only week long cocktail festival - returns this June with its most exciting event programme to date!
35 of the city's best bars and venues are teaming up with the world's finest spirit brands for seven days of mixing, shaking, creating, drinking, tasting, clinking, debating and sipping!
Join us for one-off events, tasting dinners, masterclass sessions, competitions, and parties to celebrate the art of mixing. In addition to the event's programme, each of the participating bars will be serving a unique menu of selected £5 cocktails exclusively for wristband holders.
Wristbands get you:
- discounted £5 selected cocktails at participating bars throughout the entire week of the festival.
- free entry into all festival events throughout the week*
Loves Cocktails 2017 also sees a very exciting partnership with the premium drinks distributor, Cellartrends, who will be supporting the festivals with their Re’al range, described as “the bartender’s new best friend”, as well as Ableforth’s Rumbullion and the multi award-winning Bathtub Gin. The Loves Cocktail hub at Jakes Bar will serve bespoke cocktails from these outstanding brands, as well as host specialist events for consumers and trade.
