As part of our ongoing work to nurture a thriving night-time economy, City Centre BID supported the first ever Cocktail Weekend Bristol in September 2019.
Our sponsorship resulted in the design, production and distribution of a stylish venue map. This ensured that levy paying businesses involved in the event were directly promoted to Cocktail Weekend customers.
With 520 tickets sold and more than 2,500 signature cocktails enjoyed across the weekend, the event has had a positive start, and feedback from businesses shows enthusiasm for making this an annual event. Not only does it enhance Bristol’s reputation for vibrant nightlife, it provides businesses with an opportunity to link up, share promotional opportunities and reach new audiences. Indeed, Julian Hook, founder of Cocktail Weekend Bristol , described it as ‘…an elegantly sociable way to explore Bristol with friends and perhaps discover cocktail bars never considered before.’
