Cocktails In The City Returns To Bedford Square Gardens

The alfresco summer cocktail festival returns to Bedford Square Gardens for its second edition for the summer.

Bars include The Aubrey, 8 at The Londoner, Café Pacifico, Laki Kane, Bourne & Hollingsworth, City Social, Cafe Pacifico, Nightjar, TT Liquor and Kindred.

Workshops include interactive cocktail workshop classes fsrom TT liqour and ice carving workshops with Tito’s Vodka for those who want to up their cocktail amking and presenting game.

Sipsmith, Carlos Londono and Georgi Radev reps will hold talks to offer insights into gin, agave spirits and rum.

As the series has partnered up with Everleaf non-alcholic aperitifs, even those who are off the booze for whatever reason can enjoy a drink.

Wood and Water will serve Jamaican dishes, while Prairie Fire BBQ will cook up a smoky American-style BBQ and Get The Greek will prepare authentic Mediterranean dishes.

The Travel Edition follows a sell-out first edition held in July.
