Eat, drink and be merry this December at Drink Feast

This December, for three days only, cocktail and street-food extravaganza Drink Feast will pitch up in Hoxton Docks, bringing with it 10 of London’s coolest bars and some of the capital’s most exciting culinary names for a full-on session of gastronomic guzzling.

Bars that will be serving their best brews at the event include Shoreditch destinations Callooh Callay and Shoreditch Grind, City sherry joint Copa de Cava and 1930s’-style hideaway Nola, Notting Hill basement destination The Rum Kitchen, and Kensington playground Ruski’s Tavern. Also providing liquid refreshment will be mobile bar The Rum Runner plus pop-up bars Pisco Fuego, Smokey Tails, and the Travelling Gin Company. What’s more, floating bar Vestal Voyages will ferry guests to the docks, providing ample lubrication along the way.

Each bar will be decked out with props that draw drinkers into its world – be it a 1920s' American speakeasy or a Caribbean beach shack – while actors will surround drinkers with spontaneous immersive entertainment.

But it’s not just about the bars and the booze – street-food kings Street Kitchen, Rola Wola and Señor Ceviche, as well as a clutch of Mark Hix’s restaurants, will provide drinkers with delicious, portable versions of their signature dishes.

Drink Feast will take place at Hoxton Docks from 12-14 December; tickets cost from £12 for one day (including a free cocktail and a map). For more information and to book tickets, visit drinkfeast.com – or follow the event on Facebook
