If you’re looking to gain some knowledge about the spirits industry, support your local business and community or if you’re just looking for an excuse to socialise – Ely Cocktail Weekend is for you.
ECW is a weekend to celebrate our beautiful city and the fantastic hospitality scene within it. Taking part on the 1st & 2nd of February 12-5pm both days at The Maltings down by the river.
Our plan is to capture the local bars, suppliers and global brands and put them into a relaxed atmosphere with music and food and invite the general public in for a peak behind the scenes. We want people laughing and socialising but above all we want people supporting our community and learning!
We’ve got the number 1 and number 2 spirit brands in the world (Diageo & Bacardi Brown-Forman respectively) showcasing their portfolio and what is to come on the market in the future. Many other brands also to feature.
Riverside Bar & Kitchen will be hosting the after party on the Saturday til the early hours with live music and DJ sets for the patrons that thought the afternoon was not enough.
It really is about community, with a percentage of ticket sales going towards Babylon Arts a local charity. We want to see faces we’ve never seen before and we want to welcome back faces we’ve enjoyed seeing in the past.
Tickets can be purchased by visiting RBK or The Cutter.
