Editor's Choice

Following last year's sell-out success, Cheltenham will throw the spotlight on cocktails when some of the town's most popular bars, pubs and clubs join forces to celebrate Cheltenham Cocktail Week 2018.

Whether you’re partial to a mojito, an old fashioned, or a piña colada, get ready for a tipple or two as Cheltenham Cocktail Week returns to mix things up in town this spring.

Taking place across town from Monday 14 to Saturday 19 May 2018, the event is organised by Cheltenham BID and Pernod Ricard UK, and aims to throw the spotlight on some of the town’s best-loved bars, pubs, clubs and hotels.

Cheltenham Cocktail Week also sees the launch of the Cheltenham Trio, three enticing new drinks that have been specially created, comprising Godiva Spritz by Tom Noori from Door 4; License to Thrill by Liam Dunn from Coco; and The Gold Cup by Simon Rouse from The Clarence Social.

From classic cocktails to an elegant Champagne tea party, there’s something for everyone, with SoGlos outlining the programme below.
