About the event
Seattle Cocktail Week is a week long festival celebrating the Emerald City’s cocktail scene, including the bars and brands which make up this vibrant landscape as well as the best cocktail concoctions available - all while benefiting a local charity in our community.
We have the following ingredients in the mix:
We are partnering with cocktail partners across the city to offer their most delicious drinks. Each participating location will offer up to three highlighted drinks for the week for you to try. Your festival pass will serve up one $6 cocktail per venue Sunday through Thursday of the event. You can plan your week accordingly by seeing what bars are serving online or through our printed event guide available at each location. Seattle Cocktail Week is a great chance to visit a new bar and try a new cocktail, spirit or flavour without hitting your bank balance.
Not sure where to start? We have curated a variety of experiences for you to try during the week. Our specialty tracks include Whiskey, Gin, Tequila/Mezcal, Tiki, and Dessert Cocktails.
Be prepared to have your mind blown in our immersive cocktail experience. Cocktail District is your weekend location for pop-up cocktail bars, tastings, education, experiences, food, take home spirits, and more. Want to learn what makes the best “Kentucky Hug” or what spirit can be used to make artificial diamonds? - this is your chance to taste, learn and enjoy. With over 100 brands represented, Cocktail District is a carnival of cocktails and food.
Seattle Cocktail Week is about more than just about exploring the bars. Together with our partners, we will be hosting fun and engaging events. This could be masterclasses, distillery tours, parties, tastings or paired meals. Want to learn how tequila is made? How to taste drinks like an expert? How to pair cocktails with food? How to make your favourite drinks? Or just meet loads of fun Seattleites and drink delicious cocktails with them while benefiting a great cause? There’s an event for everyone, amateur to expert.
A handful of our participating locations go one step further than a $6 cocktail and put together a unique offer for festival pass holders. This could be anything from a cocktail and paired desserts to a complete meal.
Priced at $10, the week-long Festival Pass will get you access to the city’s best cocktails priced at just $6 at participating locations across the city. Essentially it’s your key to the city for the week.
Why should you sponsor?
This is the largest tasting event in the Pacific Northwest with opportunities to reach 25-55 years olds in a creative way.
The creators of Northwest Tequila Fest, Beard and Stache Fest, and Ballard Burrito Fest thought it was time to honor our city's vibrant (and growing) cocktail scene and formed STIR to create a celebration of Seattle's best cocktail bars and restaurants, but will also showcase spirits from all over the world.
With strong ties and affection for the Seattle community, STIR will focus on bringing support and awareness to local charities whose mission it is to make a positive impact in the community.
We are proud to announce our 2018 beneficiary will be Seattle nonprofit organization, The World is Fun.
