Cocktails in the City Leeds is back to serve up the city's most creative cocktail contest, on Friday 1- Saturday 2 March, at Leeds Town Hall.
Join 16 of the city's finest bars as they create new exclusive drinks and compete to be crowned best bar.
We've cherry picked five experiences we think you should be enjoying this weekend.
1) Take a cocktail adventure
Join the nationally acclaimed bar Below Stairs and enjoy a mystery cocktail adventure. You will be invited to read a story and the choices you make will determine the flavour profile of the drink that is finally presented to you.
Enjoy your drink with a little more theatre and intrigue this year!
2) The Tasting Rooms
Take a series of three intimate tastings with some of the newest, tastiest and most prestigious spirits currently available in the UK. For the cost of one token you can enjoy three ten minute sessions with three craft spirit producers and enjoy the new releases of Slingsby Gooseberry Gin, La Diablesse Rum and celebrate the 150th anniversary of Old Forester Bourbon.
3) The Opulence Experience with Vice & Virtue
Book in for a masterclass with a difference as you learn more about your own palette and how flavours can work together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. The session includes the competition winning cocktail La Sinergia and a straight tasting of Bacardi Riserva Ocho paired with a selection of artisanal produce with a guided tasting from the team at Vice & Virtue.
4) Live Music and Cocktails with The Domino
We are proud to announce that Leeds leading live music venue The Domino will be bringing their mix of soul, funk and jazz complemented with the most delicious whisky drinks you are ever likely to enjoy in partnership with Smokehead.
5) Enjoy Fine Food in The Crypt
Luke Downing and Matt Healy have combined to offer a selection of their most popular signature dishes from their collection of restaurants including Vice and Virtue, The Foundry, Nineteen, Dough in the City and Feed.
ps - there might also be a secret bar down there!
