Seattle Cocktail Week is upon us once again!
Whether you love a good cocktail, prefer mocktails, or just want an excuse to get out on the town with friends, you won’t want to miss this annual event. Cocktail enthusiasts in Seattle get to choose their own adventure during the upcoming Seattle Cocktail Week, which starts this Sunday, March 26. Over 100 bars in Seattle will be participating through April 2 with one-of-a-kind drinks concocted just for this week. You can also buy tickets to attend the immersive Carnival of Cocktails event held at Seattle Center on Saturday, April 1.
Read on for all the details!
The main event of Seattle Cocktail Week is the Carnival of Cocktails on Saturday, April 1 at Seattle Center. Tickets are on sale online now and cost $65 per person (general admission tickets purchased at the door cost $90 and may not be available). Your ticket will get you 12 tasting tokens that can be used for spirit tastings or mini cocktails.
If you don’t drink alcohol, there will be zero-proof options available. In addition to tastings, you’ll be able to enjoy food trucks, educational sessions, and prizes.
If you don’t want to purchase tickets to Carnival of Cocktails, you can still join the fun by visiting one of the participating Seattle bars throughout the week. Over 100 bars in Seattle will be offering specials for Seattle Cocktail Week, from Northgate to Mt. Baker (and yes, West Seattle too!).
You can bar hop all around the city or just stick to your neighborhood favorites. See the full list of participating bars. Many of the bars will also be hosting events throughout the week (click on each bar to see more info).
Not a drinker? If you’re not drinking alcohol for whatever reason, you can follow the previous link of participating bars to see which ones are offering non-alcoholic cocktails. For example, Life On Mars in Capitol Hill will be offering a refreshing, citrusy Pathfinder Spritz and a fruity cocktail dubbed I Wanna Be Adored.
You can get tickets and more information on the event website or follow along on Instagram. There is also an app that you can download to help you navigate the week’s events and locations.
