First things first - buy your e-ticket. Then, when the festival begins, we look forward to seeing you at The Monkey Shoulder Hub at The Mailbox. The Hub is where you will swap your e-ticket for a wristband and guidebook. It’s where your cocktail adventure begins. You’ll start off with a complimentary dram before setting off into the city to sip delicious cocktails.

Each of our 40+ participating venues will be serving up a £5 signature cocktail, exclusively for wristband wearers. Yes you did read that right, just £5! Simply show your wristband at each bar to gain access to their £5 signature drink.

Your wristband also gives you access to a series of great events, a fab hotel discount, £4 mocktails and exclusive food offers. Everything you need for an absolutely amazing weekend!

Birmingham Cocktail Weekend starts when the first venue opens on Thursday 24 October and it runs right through until the last venue closes on Sunday 27 October. Wristbands are valid for that entire time. That means you can dip into the festival for just one evening of cocktail sipping or enjoy all four days exploring venues and sampling their signature drinks.

Our participating venues are located across the city and your guidebook includes a handy map to help you navigate between them. As always, our hand picked venues will be revealed on our website in the run up to the event. You can expect the line up to include luxury hotels, trendy bars, cosy pubs and more!
