Now a new cocktail festival is hoping to get in the mix – and City Buzz can reveal the exciting line-up of bars for the event.

The Leeds Cocktail Experience will be held at Aspire later this year – and 13 venues have already signed up to the event.

Pintura, The Alchemist, Oracle, The Botanist, Manahatta, The Maven, Sandinista and Malmaison are just some of the names taking part.

The event on Friday, October 14, will include three themed rooms where top mixologists will create some weird and wacky concoctions for guests to try.

Ticketholders can also make the most of the masterclasses, entertainment and food on offer.

Jordan Odu, director of Pink Gorilla, which is organising the Leeds Cocktail Experience, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the best that Leeds has to offer by throwing one amazing party!”

Tickets for the event cost £15 each, which includes two cocktails.


Additional drinks will be available for £5 each.

VIP tickets are also available at £25, which includes a welcome drink plus two additional cocktails and access to the VIP room.

Tickets are expected to sell out fast and only 750 will be available.
