Over the course of a weekend, attendees will be treated to more than eighteen boozy sideshows, including five themed pop-up bars each exploring a different world.
Three of the pop-up bars will take you on a journey across the seas with the first landing you at the Japanese-themed Sakura Saloon, then a hop to Island Time to drink rum on tiki playground before flying you across the Pacific to Once Upon A Time in Mexico where you’ll be downing tequila, tacos and margaritas.
The other two bars will focus on two much-loved drinks: the espresso martini and all things gin where inspiration will be taken from the leading bars across the UK and Europe.
But that’s not all.
The Perth Cocktail Festival will also feature live music and DJs, a karaoke bar, and a silent disco so that the drinks aren’t the only things shaking and stirring. Masterclasses are also on the cards for everybody ranging from novice to mixology expert. Now everyone will be able to up their cocktail-making game.
There will also be a variety of food on offer with pop-up restaurants and grazing tables peppered around the parklands to keep you fuelled for more.
The Perth Cocktail Festival will take place on 26, 27 and 28 February with four separate, five-hour sessions.
