The week-long festival kicks off with The Grand Opening on Saturday, 4 November 2017, from 4:30pm to 10:30pm.

The evening will include over 20 pop-up bars, tons of interactive cocktail activities and have only the best in local DJs to keep you on your feet all night. Line your stomach with delicious burgers, pizza, pasta, sushi and so much more available from the Cape Quarter! Taste your way through mini-versions of premium cocktail bars such as Arcade, Café Caprice, HQ, The Twankey Bar and Harringtons Cocktail Lounge, who are also some of the official SACW venues for this year.

The likes of Asoka, Orphanage Cocktail Emporium, Cause & Effect, Primal Eatery and Burger & Lobster will ensure they have their top mixologist whipping up spectacular signature cocktails made with their partner spirits. Brands such as Bacardi, Jim Beam Bourbon, Absolut Vodka, Tanqueray 10 and Monkey Shoulder will be sending taste buds on a tantalizing journey and educating people with affordable taste-drinks from each pop-up bar ranging between R15 and R30. 

To keep cocktail lovers on their toes, they’ll be encouraged to vote for their favourites in various categories throughout the night which will result in the SA Cocktail Week Awards. A theme that supports sustainability and refuse-the-straw campaign can be expected with no straws being served on the evening.

For the remainder of the week, ticket holders are encouraged to visit as many of the 10 partner venues as possible, using their SACW wrist band to attend SA Cocktail Week feature events and redeem their 50% off signature cocktails, designed specifically for the week, and available only to people with a valid wrist band (which will be handed out in exchange for tickets at The Grand Opening).
