The Leeds Cocktail Experience first stirred the city’s interest back in October 2016 and was an instant success. Two sell-out parties followed, with each one getting bigger and better, reflecting the very best of Leeds nightlife scene. Organised by one of Yorkshire’s leading PR agencies, Pink Gorilla and Hairy Lemon, it has now become a hotly-anticipated staple in the Leeds’ social calendar.
Pink Gorilla Director Jordan Odu said: ‘’It’s hard to believe it’s almost two years since our first Leeds Cocktail Experience, but then time really does fly when you’re having fun. The Leeds cocktail scene has evolved massively since 2016, and our fourth party will be the perfect place to experience the huge amount of homegrown talent and diversity we have access to.
As ever, our event is as much about the people and the partying as it is having the very best bars, bartenders and cocktails under one roof, and so guests can expect a night they won’t forget in a hurry. We hope to see you at all the bars for a cocktail or three!’”
