Wat gebeurt er tijdens de eerste The Hague Cocktail Week?

DEN HAAG - Cocktailliefhebbers kunnen tussen 11 en 19 mei terecht bij maar liefst achttien bars in Den Haag. De Cocktailweek, georganiseerd door Nick Mosley en Astrid Philipsen, is dit jaar voor het eerst in de hofstad en belooft spectaculair te worden. Het concept is simpel: gasten kunnen voor €12,- bij deelnemende bars of op de festival-website een polsbandje kopen. Elke locatie biedt drie cocktails aan voor slechts €6,-. In totaal zijn er 54 cocktails uit te proberen. Daarnaast zijn er proeverijen, masterclasses en andere evenementen, zoals een Bloody Mary-brunch en The Hague Cocktail Cruise.
