We are delighted to announce that Edinburgh Cocktail Week will return in 2021,

Monday 11th - Sunday 17th October.

With the vaccination programme now underway, we are confident that Edinburgh Cocktail Week will take place in October this year.

We hope to deliver the festival in its usual format, but our plans also include 'Plan B', which will allow the festival to go ahead even

if social distancing is in place and if festivals are restricted to outdoors.

So, with that assurance, wristbands are on sale now!

With an ECW wristband you can enjoy £4 Signature Cocktails at over 70 of Edinburgh's finest bars. Wristbands also give you free entry to the Cocktail Village - the buzzing epicentre of the festival - packed with 20 pop-up bars serving £4 cocktails, plus live music, street food, masterclasses and entertainment!

With an wristband you can also attend our week-long programme of unique and exciting events & experiences across the city.

The full festival line-up will be announced in 2021, with those who have pre-booked wristbands online being given priority access to our exciting news and announcements.
