Back bigger and better than ever before, Birmingham Cocktail Weekend will be shaking up the second city next weekend. Celebrating five years, BCW returns for a bumper four-days, bringing together 50 of Birmingham’s best-loved bars for a festival like no other.

When is it?

From the moment the first venue opens on Thursday 11 July until the last venue closes on Sunday 14 July.

How does it work?

Cocktail-lovers can purchase a #BCW wristband for £10, which grants wearers access to £4 signature cocktails in venues across the city, as well as access to a line-up of exciting events that will take place over the four-day festival: from tastings to masterclasses and everything in between, they’re sure to keep you shaken and stirred.  The venues create a new exclusive cocktail which is created especially for BCW and served only for the weekend!

Where can I get a wristband?

On sale now, wristbands are available to buy from www.birminghamcocktailweekend.co.uk.

Where do I pick up my wristband?

This year, the Birmingham Cocktail Weekend Hub will be located at the Urban Rooms in the Mailbox, sponsored by headline sponsor, Maker’s Mark. The Maker’s Mark Hub at The Mailbox will be the starting point for cocktail-revellers, where they can grab their wristbands before heading out to explore the best of the city’s bar scene. Cocktail-lovers will be able to pick up their guidebook and map, so they can navigate their way around the city, sippin’ one signature cocktail at a time. It will also be a chance to try Maker’s Mark and get to know the bourbon brand.
