The Wheatbaker Hotel and Lagos Cocktail Lagos present Lagos Cocktail Week 2016 | October 10th-15th

Following two successful editions, Lagos Cocktail Week (LCW) returns this October!
Lagos Cocktail Week is a festival that
celebrates the unique cocktail culture in Nigeria through events,
seminars and training sessions. This five-day event aims at educating on
cocktail culture both locally and internationally, inform on global
trends and entertain individuals, businesses and corporations.

Created by the CEO of Eventi Cocktails, Lara Rawa,
Lagos Cocktail Week was established to showcase the best of Nigeria’s
cocktail culture, with the aspiration for the cocktail industry at large
to be recognised as an integral aspect of the Nigerian beverage
industry. This festival can also be described as a gathering of cocktail
enthusiasts as beverage brands and lovers of great cocktails and
mocktails alike get to indulge their taste buds at designated hubs.
“There is so much potential for growth
in the cocktail industry in Nigeria and I believe that we have what it
takes to compete globally. Given that the cocktail industry is a viable
SME option with the potential of contributing significantly to the
Nigerian economy, we have included seminars, workshops and an exhibition
in our line-up of events to attract a wider audience” – Lara Rawa, the
CEO of Eventi Cocktail and Creator of Lagos Cocktail Week.
Lagos Cocktail Week is also signing up
partnering bars that will offer cocktails at a discount to LCW wristband
wearers. In order to take advantage of the promotions and offers
happening during the week-long event, participants will be required to
purchase wristbands at The Liquid Hub, 2 Olawale Dawodu Street, off
Kingsway Road Ikoyi Lagos”.
