India Cocktail Week Returns To Delhi After 4 Long Years With Exciting Drinks & Music

The standards set at cocktail bars in India are no longer second to anywhere else, and this is slowly being recognised internationally. No matter where you head to chill, a glass of cocktail makes everything worth it. What’s better to celebrate the art of mixology and the cocktail culture in India through a weekend of celebration?

Yes, India Cocktail Week is what we are talking about. But this time making a grand return on the 1st of April and 2nd in New Delhi after four long years.

India Cocktail Week In Delhi

Over 20+ brands to explore, live music, art and delicious food—that pretty much sums up what awaits you at India Cocktail Week at Dhyan Chand stadium in New Delhi. The event will bring together some of the best bartenders, mixologists, and cocktail enthusiasts from around the country to showcase their skills and creativity. 

The festival has never been about just drinking cocktails but also about learning and exploring the history and culture behind the drinks. The first India Cocktail Week was held in 2015 in Mumbai, and since then, it has grown in popularity and expanded to other cities, including Delhi, Bengaluru, and Pune. The events had earlier featured masterclasses and workshops on various topics, including the history of cocktails, the science of mixology, and the art of garnishing.
