Southend's popular cocktail week is returning soon with a number of venues hosting top event and showcasing their drink making skills.

The event is back from Friday 22 October to Sunday 31 October 2021 and is being held by Southend Business Improvement Dirstrict.

This is the third annual Southend Cocktail Week, showcasing Southend venues who will create a range of delicious cocktails and mocktails whilst hosting unmissable events.

This will be a celebration of Southend’s night-time economy, supporting local business within the nightlife industry.

Drinks on offer throughout Southend Cocktail Week in previous years have included a ‘Bubblegum Mojito’, ‘Alas Poor Yorick’ (a coconut rum-based drink) and a ‘White Chocolate Russian’; each and every creation highlights Southend’s wide range of cocktail venues, alongside their workers’ exceptional bartending abilities.


Southend BID Manager, Suzanne Gloyne, said: “In previous years we have been blown away by the response to Southend Cocktail Week; it’s quickly become an unmissable event that attracts invaluable footfall for nearby businesses. Since the pandemic, this has become more important than ever before… our night-time economy has been under immense pressure and any efforts to support local businesses’ post-pandemic recovery are greatly appreciated. By promoting local venues’ delicious drinks and supporting events that celebrate their offerings, we’re helping to propel Southend and position our town as a safe, supportive and creative nightlife destination as restrictions have now eased.”
