Cocktails in the City – COMPETITION

Are you a cocktail aficionado or perhaps just the kind of person who likes to prop up the bar up whilst sipping from a martini glass in a sophisticated manner? If either of these sound like you then read on – there’s something very exciting happening soon.

Edinburgh’s got a fantastic bar scene, and our cocktail game is particularly strong. But have you ever considered what it would be like if these bars came together under one roof for a festival of all things cocktails? Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it? Well, as much of a dream as this sounds you can pinch yourself because it’s very much real and happening next Thursday!


In a fantastic one-night extravaganza, Cocktails in the City is coming to Edinburgh on Thursday 23rd October to celebrate all the best cocktail bars and mixologists our fine city boasts. There will be demonstrations, cocktail making classes and the opportunity to talk to some of the very best in the business – as well as sampling many of these delicious creations, of course.

Along side 15 of the city’s bars appearing in pop-up form, there will be food, fashion advice and live music throughout the evening. More information can be found here.

The wonderful Mansfield Traquair, in Broughton, will be the venue for this cocktail extravaganza, with some of the city’s best bars lined up to take part, including:

56 North & Whitley Neill Gin
The Blackbird & Belvedere Vodka
Panda and Sons & Polugar
Harvey Nichols Fourth Flour & Chase Marmalade Vodka
99 Hanover Street
Clouds and Soil
and many more…

Sounds pretty amazing, right? The best part is that you and a friend could be going! Working with Cocktails in the City, Edinburgh Editor is giving a pair of tickets to the event to one lucky winner!
