Nottingham Cocktail Week

For one week only, enjoy exclusive cocktails, offers and events at over 40 city centre bars and restaurants.


Nottingham Cocktail Week is back for a second year and there's a lot to look forward to! Over the last few months your favourite city centre bars and restaurants have been working tirelessly to create the ultimate menu of exclusive cocktails for you; the great people of Nottingham. The result? Over 43 absolute works of art that perfectly demonstrate the abundance of talented bartenders in our city. The week-long celebration of all things cocktail related will take place from Monday 11th - Sunday 17th November. and everyone is invited so get the dates in your calendar!

The inspiration behind Nottingham Cocktail Week is pure and simple ( a lot like a good cocktail! ). To showcase the raw creative and talent lying at the heart of Nottingham's phenomenal night life scene. It's an opportunity to try something exciting, find a new favourite drink, meet new friends and of course... to drink some fantastic cocktails!

Three categories to enjoy

As with the previous year, there will be three categories of exclusive cocktails to try and enjoy.

Twist On A Classic: 

The Twist On A Classic category is all about giving the cocktails we all know and love a new lease of life. It's taking something great and making it even better!


This one is what dreams are made of. Imagine your favourite coffee house teaming up with your favourite bar to create the ultimate cocktail?! Well that's exactly the case with the collaborations category. Enjoy!

Nottingham Personality:

These quirky cocktails are inspired by some of Nottingham's most infamous personalities. Take a look at the menu and see if you can work out who or what each cocktail is inspired by.

The Menu: 

There's over 40 exclusive cocktails to try at Nottingham Cocktail Week. To help you pick out your favourites ahead of the event we've created a handy digital menu. CLICK HERE to take a peek.

Battle Of The Bars:

As part of the celebrations we offer all the participating venues the chance to submit their creations into a competition to find out who concocted the finest cocktails of Nottingham Cocktail Week. After a tough judging process by industry pros, the finalists are invited to a head to head competition.

The final of this years cocktail week will be taking place at Boilermaker on Monday 18th November. We can't wait to find out who will be crowned King or Queen of cocktails in Nottingham!

Please note that this event is only open to participants. We'll be sure to update you with all the results though! Until then, check out a few photos from last years final.
