Make sure youve got some free time in August, because an Espresso Martini Festival is coming to London.

The festival first took place last year, as Londons first ever Espresso Martini Festival, courtesy of Mr Black, and it was a massive success.

So much so, that theyve decided to bring it back for a second year – this time with a dedicated space for the celebration of coffee culture.

The festival will be taking place in bars all across London between 16 and 19 August, celebrating the capitals most famous cocktail export, whilst Mr Blacks Church of Coffee pop-up space in Shoreditch will keep the coffee liqueur flowing throughout the weekend.

The event comes in partnership with DrinkUp.London, the team behind London Cocktail Week.
