Cocktail festival SIP is happening on Changle Lu this weekend

Literally what more could you want than a load of great boozy drinks right in the centre of town? Oh pizza... They have that too

It's the SIP Cocktail Festival, but that doesn't mean you have to 'SIP'. By all means, sip in lowercase, or slam a Long Island made with homemade organic lemon syrup and four-leaf clover infusion. Chug a Bloody Mary infused with joss smoke and a unicorn's whinny. Skull a Ramos Gin Fizz, right in the face of the bartender who spent ten minutes shaking it, though they'll probably stop serving you after that.

Social Supply is bringing back the booze-fuelled festival for its second year in a row, featuring some of the city's top bartenders all in one place. This year the fest includes a lineup of 15 bartenders including Charlie Andrews (Our/Vodka, Botanik), Chris Lowder (Diplomatico), Colin Tait (Shake), Dean Li and Jerry Yu (Le Baron), Dylan Lam (Woobar), Geoff Marett (Hong Kong), James Liu and Harry Zhang (Atelier), Lucky Huang (Alcocase), Micaela Piccolo (Plantation Rum), Nathan Tse (Cityson), Rocky Tang (Peddlers Gin Co), Sasha Bondi (Barbarian) and Timothee Becqueriaux (Highline).

Beer and wine will also be offered by Seven Brews, 8 Wired, Zeffer and Sarment, while eats will be coming from Madison Kitchen, Latin Woo, Taco Laoban and Homeslice Pizza.
