The questions you want to ask, answered...

Cocktails in the City? Isn’t that the big cocktail event at The Hub? Yep, that’s right. It’s like one big party under one roof, with the city’s best mixologists competing to be crowned best cocktail bar. This year, it takes place on Friday 03 and Saturday 04 May.

Sounds exciting. Do I get to sample the goods? Yes, you’ll want to leave the car at home as there’s plenty to sample and they’re all new, signature cocktails, created especially for the event by some of the city’s best bars.

Anything else going on? There’s also the chance to sample handpicked craft spirits at the Tasting Rooms and all the latest cocktail trends in the new Future Trends Lounge. You can also expect live music from Fingers Piano Bar, a street food market featuring Edinburgh’s finest vendors and a special celebration to mark 100 years of the negroni.

I’m in. How do I get a ticket? The £12.50 ticket cost includes entry, one cocktail and a cocktail booklet. All cocktails on the evening are £6.50 from any of the exhibiting bars.
