London Cocktail Week 2022 will run from 13-23 October, straddling two weekends, following two years of extended month-long festivals.
Its organisers will also reintroduce the cocktail village element of LCW.
“Little Cocktail Villages” will be created across the city, each hosting four or five “immersive pop-ups”, highlighting a broader range of London’s cocktail nightlife.
The festival’s £7 signature cocktails - served to wristband wearers in hundreds of bars in London - will also return.
Once again, bars are not charged to be involved in the festival, with all revenue from the Signature Cocktails remaining with the bar.
The revised dates also mean there is no clash with other European trade shows such as BCB in Berlin.
Hannah Sharman-Cox and Siobhan Payne said: “It was important to us that the festival structure echoes the requirements of our bar partners, brand partners and of course - our guests.
“We loved showcasing our festival and our city for the full month, but moving to two weekends seems to be the perfect sweet spot for everyone involved. We can’t wait to get cracking to make this year’s festival even bigger, even more inclusive and showcasing even more areas of the city.”
