One of Lagos’ most thrilling events, The Lagos Cocktail Week, is scheduled to hold from October 7th-October 16th 2021 at the Balmoral Marquee, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island. The week-long event, founded by Lara Rawa, promises to be nothing short of exhilarating.
The Lagos Cocktail Week, which debuted in 2014, is the first event of its kind. The annual event allows lovers of the finer things to enjoy the best cocktails and liquor that Lagos has to offer. All you have to do is purchase a ticket!
This year, the organisers of Lagos Cocktail Week have brought on board some prestigious liquor brands as partners. We are anticipating a taste of what Fayrouz, Desperados, Absolut Vodka, Star Radler, Jameson, Olmeca Tequila, Beefeater Gin, Johnnie Walker, Mr. Dowell’s, Gordon’s Moringa and many others have in store for the attendees. Top and upscale bars and restaurants that will be participating in the Lagos Cocktail Week include Brass and Copper, Circa Lagos, RSVP, Slow, Orile, Seetle, South Social, Sao cafe, The Cabin, Stories, Atmosphere, Liquid Hub, Ooh la, la, Cafe de Flore, Light House and Mykonos.
On Tuesday 5th October, the event will begin with a conference that spells out the values that the partners share: drinking responsibly and celebrating Nigerians in their diverse ways and taste. The Cocktail Village will be erected from the 15th to 16th of October to allow guests share in the mouth-watering flavours with some of their favourite influencers. At the Cocktail Village, attendees can go round to different drink vendors and experience their unique bars.
The thrill lovers can also anticipate the bar battle between some of Lagos’ best mixologists. This face-off will round off the Lagos Cocktail Week and see bartenders battle it out to win the title of ‘Best Bartender in Nigeria’.
Speaking on this year’s event, Lara Rawa (founder) says:
“It is such an honour to illuminate an important industry in our culture and society. I am glad that people appreciate the art that is cocktail making. When we are out socialising, we enjoy ourselves and forget there’s someone who has taken their time to craft us a special drink. This event is all about the mixologist and their tools!”
