Cocktail Week will showcase Cheltenham's buzzing bar scene

The Cheltenham pub and bar scene will be buzzing more than normal next month when the town holds its third annual cocktail week.

Now a firm fixture in the calendar Cheltenham Cocktail Week will run from Friday, May 10 to Saturday, May 18 with a record number of bars, restaurants and hotels taking part.

Organised by the Cheltenham Business Improvement District (BID), the event will highlight the varied spectrum of bars around the town.

BID Operations Manager Belinda Hunt said: "We're pleased that so many different businesses are taking part in Cocktail Week this year.

"We have such a diverse range of bars, clubs and pubs in Cheltenham, all offering something different and we want people to enjoy the variety of venues around the town."

Venues across the town will also be holding associated events to go alongside the hard work of sampling your favourite tipple.

Familiar venues like Revolution, Smokey Joes, Coco and AquaVitae will be joined for the first time by the Cosy Club and newcomers The Botanist and Memsahib Gin and Tea.

As well as a wide array of drinks, classes will be held on how to make classic cocktails alongside tasting events.

There will be a Drinks Village where revelers can sample up to 40 difference spirits and learn how they are made, held at The Queens Hotel by Tom Noori of Door 4 over the first weekend.

The full list of events and participating venues will be updated on the Cheltenham BID website and across social media
