Get ready for a week-long celebration of all things cocktails in the heart of the city. Southampton Cocktail Week 2024, which takes place from 30th August to 8th September, is a late-summer celebration of the city’s coolest and most exciting hospitality venues.

GO! Southampton is supporting Southampton Cocktail Week, organised by a team of managers from the city’s hospitality industry. “Our cocktail bars and lounges are some of the best in the country” said Gary Bennetton, a Southampton business owner, “and we wanted to showcase them all, so that everyone knows what they offer and how to find them.

“There are some real hidden gems in the city, each with its own unique atmosphere. Visitors will find quirky, dramatic, sumptuous and retro bars plus delicious cocktails to delight and surprise them. We know it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Each participating venue will hold a fun activity or event during the promotional week, as well as creating its own signature cocktail for visitors to enjoy. With wristbands starting from just £5 per person, participants will receive a goody bag which they can collect from one of the participating local businesses. Make sure you stay tuned for further details.  There will be mocktails and other activities on offer for those who are alcohol free.

Each goody bag will contain a comprehensive guide to the events happening throughout the week at each bar; a wristband that entitles the wearer to exclusive perks; special discounts on unique cocktails crafted specifically for this event; a map of Southampton highlighting all the cocktail bars involved, plus giveaways from renowned brands like Pernod Ricard, Bacardi and Brown-Forman.

Flo Bevis, Marketing Manager at GO! Southampton, said: “We’re inviting everyone to be part of Southampton Cocktail Week and contribute to this vibrant community event. Let’s come together to celebrate our shared love of cocktails and support our beloved hospitality industry.

“We know it’s been a tough time for the industry, but Southampton has such a great offering, and it’s through these kinds of initiatives that makes the city such an exciting destination for lunch, afternoon drinks or a night out!”
