Aberdeen Cocktail Week has been extended for a second time to ensure everyone can enjoy the magic of mixology in the wake of Storm Babet.
The festival will now run until this Sunday, 29th October, at select venues after travel restrictions imposed by the weekend’s severe weather meant hundreds of revellers were unable to get into the city.
Aberdeen Cocktail Week had been due to end today (October 24) but was originally extended to this Thursday because of the storm and is now going to carry on at a number of venues until Sunday.
Those keeping their doors open until 29th October include Arcadia, Common Sense, Dusk, Jam Jar, Noose & Monkey, OGV Taproom, The Esslemont, Orchid, Siberia, Resident X and Under The Hammer with others still to be announced. Due to existing event bookings, some limitations may apply.
Festival organiser, Gregor Sey, said “We are dedicated to the well-being and satisfaction of all attendees, staff, and the hospitality community at large. And after reading and replying to countless messages from stranded attendees, I am so happy that we are able to offer this second extension and be able to showcase the city’s cocktail culture to those who have been unable to travel or worse, impacted by the weather.”
Organisers are urging cocktail fans to continue to follow any travel safety guidelines still in effect.
