A message from the Founders to our beloved hospitality industry...

DrinkUp.London was designed to be a platform which supports London's wonderful hospitality scene - and in this unprecedented time - here's an update from us.

We understand that you, our beloved members of the drinks industry, are going through a horrible time and we want to do everything we can to help you. 

So for now, with bars and restaurants across the country temporarily closed and events cancelled, we will be dedicating our DrinkUp.London platform to showcasing the ways in which you’re adapting. 

Whether this be through highlighting drinks delivery or voucher schemes, or listing virtual drinks events taking place, we will do our best to cover these within these pages. So if you’re a bar owner or event organiser who has something happening – please do get in touch with us by emailing [email protected]. We're here to help. 

If you're ready to submit an event to us - you can do that HERE

Our biggest event - London Cocktail Week - is due to take place across the capital in October, and for now we are working on the basis that the country will have this situation under control and the biggest celebration of cocktail culture can continue as planned. However, we will of course be keeping a close eye on the situation, and if the government determines that we have to change the dates – we will. When we’re through this terrible time and the bars start to reopen – we know that the hospitality community is going to need London Cocktail Week more than ever - so please know - London Cocktail Week will still go ahead.

We are not going to attempt to be a platform for practical or legal information about getting through the crisis but we have linked to some of the very best resources within this trade page.

If there are any other ways at all that you think we might be able to support you, please do not hesitate to be in touch with us - we will do everything in our power to help throughout this difficult time. Whether you are a bar owner or bar back -  even if you'd just like a chat over a virtual coffee or martini - we’re here for you, just drop either of us a message on social media or email us: [email protected].  

Please stay well and know that we support you.

With love,

Hannah Sharman-Cox & Siobhan Payne
Founders, DrinkUp.London
