Today marks the start of London Cocktail Week and at Treves & Hyde in Aldgate East we are practicing our mixology skills to get ready for the week. London Cocktail Week is the world’s biggest cocktail festival – a vibrant celebration of our capital’s unrivalled cocktail scene! Returning for its eighth year, London Cocktail Week (LCW) will take place from 2nd October, championing the bars, brands and beverages that constitute London’s vibrant spirits scene. Throughout the week, we will be serving a range of cocktails, from old time classics to cocktails with unique flavours with a Treves twist.
At Treves & Hyde, our attention to detail and the never-ending battle for the perfect balance are at the forefront of the bar. The consistent theme of the finest ingredients and the best equipment for the job also features in the bar.
Keeping your cocktails summer themed? Try the Sun & Spritz – a mix of limoncello, st germain, lemon and crémant de limoux sparkling wine that leaves you wanting after every sip. Other popular choices here at Treves include the classic El Presidente, a delicate fusion of abuelo 7 rum, dry vermouth, curaçao and grenadine. Smoke & Mirrors is ideal for any romantic dinner or evening drink – sipsmith london dry gin, dry vermouth, islay scotch and a pinch of sea salt.
If you aren’t in the Aldgate area at the time you get a thirst for a cocktail, make sure to check out The Cocktail Village at Old Spitalfields Market.
The Cocktail Village is a great part of LCW. Playing host to the festival for the third year running, and bigger than ever, the site offers an immersive maze of popup bars and food vendors exhibiting in trucks, barrels, bicycles, and just about any other guise you can think of, as well as live music performances and interactive experiences.
