The Singapore Cocktail Festival is an annual event that gathers drink and cocktail lovers across Singapore and in Asia, giving attendees a chance to try tasty cocktails from some of the best bartenders and bars in the region.

The festival is divided into two parts:

From 5 - 7 May: SGCF Festival Village This is a a 3-day live event at the Marina Bay where attendees can tour different booths set up by bars and spirit brands to try out different cocktails. While the full line-up is set to be announced in the coming weeks, some of the bars already confirmed to be participating include Analogue, Origin Bar, the Elephant Room, Stay Gold Flamingo and Manhattan. Spirits brands that will also be setting up booths for tasting include Codigo Tequila, Black Tears spiced rum, and Tanglin Gin.

From 5 - 21 May: SGCF City Takeover After the Festival Village concludes, the Singapore Cocktail Festival will continue to run for another 3 weeks with the City Takeover. 45 of Singapore's bars will continue to offer unique festival-special cocktails at their respective venues. These cocktails have been designed to the theme of "Shaking Up New Possibilities", and will represent each bar's vision for the future of the cocktail industry.
