City’s week of cocktails

OVER 80 bars, a hidden Masterclass Hub and a Pornstar Martini Party will all be part of Edinburgh Cocktail Week next month.

The event, held from October 15 to October 21, has been expanded from a weekend last year and also sees the introduction of a new Cocktail Village – a marquee containing 15 pop-up bars in Festival Square.

Signature £4 cocktails will be available at more than 80 bars across the city, as well as in the Cocktail Village, for wristband holders.

Cocktail Week organiser, Gary Anderson, said the larger programme across the city this year would give the event “more of a festival feel”.
