Meet Hannah and Siobhan, co-founders of London Cocktail Week...

Get to know drinks legends Hannah & Siobhan...

We are Hannah Sharman-Cox and Siobhan Payne - the co-founders of London Cocktail Week - the biggest cocktail festival of it’s kind in the world. The festival is also actually extended to a month this October so it’s probably even bigger than before.
The best thing about London Cocktail Week?

The London hospitality scene is truly world class, and we are privileged to partner with some of the very best bars in the capital who throw open their doors to welcome our guests and showcase their delicious drinks. And the very best part is the London Cocktail Week Signature Cocktails are just £7 all month long when you have a festival wristband.

Something new we might be surprised to see during London Cocktail Week 2021?
We’ve got our own pop-up bar this year in the heart of Covent Garden - and we’ve opened the Main Bar up to our friends from around the UK and Europe who will be hosting take overs throughout, so you just never know what you might get to taste or who you might get to meet.

Best London Cocktail Week memory (ever)?
Our tenth birthday celebration was pretty special. We gathered our nearest and dearest, got to stand up and give the thank you speech that had been brewing for a decade and then we had an absolutely wonderful party.

Where’s your favourite secret hangout spot?
We’ve got some real hidden gems on this years list and have worked hard to find them. Ogam Tapas Bar in Islington is a truly authentic Korean bar with the most amazing team, the new spot Abajo has also joined the list this year and also KOL Mezcalaria… both a fantastic find if you’ve not been already.

Where do you go to for cocktail inspiration? 
Watching any bartender work is always fascinating - they all have their own favourite ingredient or a certain style to the way they mix drinks that is cool. The only cocktails we make at home ourselves are Martinis - so we wait for our inspiration to arrive through our letter box from you guys! 😜

What are you going to do to unwind after London Cocktail Week?
We’re going to spend a little bit less time on our laptops and hopefully get away for some R&R. We have absolutely no doubt we deserve it…

If we were making a movie about London Cocktail Week, who would you want to play you?
