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. There will be close to 100 different cocktails to sip on, all priced at $15 only. Many of Singapore's best bars will be making their appearance, including Jigger & Pony, Analogue, Republic Bar and No Sleep Club. In addition, the festival will feature some Headliner Bars from overseas, including Indulge Experimental Bistro (Taipei), Maybe Sammy (Sydney), Penicillin (Hong Kong), ReCraft (Manila), Sidecar (New Delhi) and The Bar at The House on Sathorn (Bangkok). Spirits brands that will also be setting up booths for tasting include Codigo Tequila, Black Tears spiced rum, Monkey 47, Monkey Shoulder and Tanglin Gin. 

From 5 - 21 May: SGCF City Takeover The City Takeover will occur over the course of three weeks, running concurrently with the SGCF Festival Village for the first week. 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.
