This year’s event will see 10 of Cape Town’s top cocktail venues go head to head in the spirit of winning the best in categories such as Most Loved Cocktail Bar, Top Bartender, Most Enthusiastic Brand Ambassador, The People’s Favorite Brand and most of all, Best Signature Cocktail.
Between 4 and 11 November, The Mother City will experience the second installment of SA Cocktail Week and this year they’re creating a stir by introducing the first ever SA Cocktail Week Awards. The festival will begin with The Grand Opening happening at The Cape Quarter and Jarvis Street on Saturday, 4 November from 4:30pm – 10pm.
