Manchester drink enthusiasts will want to book the 4th – 10th September off work, as the city’s only week-long cocktail festival returns for 7 days of events, parties, dinners, music, tastings, masterclasses, competitions and discounted cocktails!

Following a successful first year in 2016 that saw more than 2500 cocktail fans attend the festival, Manchester Loves Cocktails is back for seven days of mixing, shaking, creating, drinking, tasting, clinking, debating and sipping across more than 20 of city’s coolest bars, restaurants and venues, of course including plenty of spots in the Northern Quarter.

Manchester Loves Cocktails takes place in partnership with Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin and Rumbullion and Re’al syrups who will host the 2 festival hubs at Crazy Pedros and Science and Industry at Cane and Grain, which will also act as the wristband exchange and information point, as well as host a series of special events during the week.

There’s a ton of other brands involved taking in pretty much every spirit you could think of/need in your life and a who’s who of bars across the city including Kosmonaut, Crazy Pedros, Science and Industry, Sugar Rays and more in the Northern Quarter. Each bar will team up with one of the world’s finest spirit brands to create a unique menu of £5 discounted cocktails and host events exclusively for wristband holders.
