Every guest of Cocktails in the City receives their cocktail guide but unfortunately we can only fit one drink per bar into our booklet. Introduce yourself to every bar and find out what else they might be serving. We have selected a few drinks we think shouldn't be missed at this years event courtesy of Arcane, Tast, The Alchemist, Grafene and The Anthologist.

The winner of best cocktail last year will Arcane take it twice in a row? Inspired by the decadent Belle Epoque period and using their signature homemade ingredients this looks like a winner to us!
