Following the success of the inaugural Winchester Cocktail Week in 2016, we are delighted to bring the city's first ever cocktail festival back for a second year from 6 February to 12 February 2017
When the festive season is but a distant memory, the cold nights of winter can feel bleak and long. What better way to cast aside the darkness than to brighten up your evenings with some fun nights out, sampling the best cocktails Winchester has to offer?
Across the city, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops will be getting into the swing of things by offering discounted signature cocktails and hosting special events and parties.
With so many venues taking part, this is going to be a great opportunity to explore the city over a week and enjoy drinks that you might not otherwise have tried. You may even discover a new, favourite tipple!
To benefit from these special offers, you’ll need a Winchester Cocktail Week wristband…
Taking part is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Purchase your ticket online today!
2. Nearer the time, exchange your ticket for a wristband and souvenir guide at the Cocktail Week Hub.
3. Show your wristband at participating businesses to access exclusive Cocktail Week deals and events.
THE NEW ROMANTIC BALL
1980's FINALE PARTY
Finish your week in style at our 1980's Finale Party, The New Romantic Ball. There'll be a cocktail bar serving up 80's inspired drinks, DJ Hammy playing classic New Romantic tunes and spot prizes for the most convincing New Romantics among you!

If tickets cost £15 why am I being charged £16.30?
Tickets for Winchester Cocktail Week cost £15, which includes VAT. Eventbrite also charges a £1.30 booking fee on top of the ticket price.
How long will the festival last?
Special deals will be running throughout the week from 6 February to 12 February 2017. Please check at www.winchestercocktailweek.co.uk for full details of what’s going on.
Why do I have to exchange my ticket?
You will need to go to the Cocktail Week Hub to pick up your wristband and guide to the week. Venues will only serve you discounted cocktails and allow you entry to special Cocktail Week events if you are wearing your wristband. If you forget it at home or lose it, you will not be able to benefit from the week’s activities… so keep it in a safe place or wear it for the whole week!
Where do I have to go to exchange my ticket?
Details of the Cocktail Week Hub, including opening times, will be made available on the website in the weeks running up to the event. Please make sure you know where and when to pick up your wristband well in advance of making your way into the city as we are unable to refund your ticket if you do not pick up your wristband in good time.
Can I still access deals without a wristband if I can show the ticket on my phone or a paper copy?
To make life simple for the wonderful bartenders, waitresses and associates serving up Cocktail Week, you must wear your wristband in order to benefit from the deals available. Printouts or tickets on phones will not be accepted so please do keep your wristband safe. We recommend wearing it for the whole week!
Can I share my wristband with someone else?
If you’re out in a group or as a couple, everyone ordering a special Cocktail Week cocktail or entering a special event must be wearing their own wristband. It won’t be possible to buy discounted cocktails for people who are not wearing a wristband so make sure all your friends have got theirs!
What if I can’t come into Winchester for all seven days of the festival?
There’ll be a lot going on over the week, including the weekend, so we hope you’ll be able to make your way into town on a few occasions. Unfortunately, we don't offer discounts or partial refunds to those not planning to use their wristband on every day throughout the week.
Do I need a wristband to attend the Finale Party?
You do not need a wristband to attend the New Romantic Ball - just a ticket! However, if you are wearing a wristband on the night then you'll be able to purchase our signature 80's inspired cocktail for just £4.
Do you offer refunds or exhanges?
Unfortunately, tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
Do I need to tell you if I have food allergies?
If you have any allergies or food intolerances please let your server know before you order your drinks.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit?
Tickets should only be purchased by persons aged 18 years or over. The organisers of Winchester Cocktail Week support the Challenge 25 initiative, meaning photographic proof of age will be required if you are lucky enough to look under 25!
