Elizabeth Murphy, Manager of Wakefield BID, said: “The face of Wakefield’s evening economy and nightlife is changing and this event is designed to encourage people to come and experience that first hand in a quality, responsible way.

“I think people will be surprised when they experience this quiet revolution of quality new venues, especially when compared to even just a few years ago. We’ve now got strength in depth, with more on the way.”

Venues taking part in the cocktails event include: Jock’s Cavern, Robatary, The Establishment, The Quarter Cafe Bar, Velvet, The Supper Club, Now Serving, Kindred Spirit, Stereo and Qubana.

WFD Cocktails in the City will take place from Thursday, November 15, to Sunday, November 18, 2018.

Cocktails in the City is part of Wakefield BID’s attempt to achieve Purple Flag status, an official accreditation which would recognise Wakefield city centre as a high quality, safe night out.

WFD Cocktails in the City will run from Thursday, November 15 to Sunday, November 18.
