About the Event

Mark your calendars, Philippines’ very first Cocktail Festival is here! A celebration of the Filipino cocktail scene and the warmth in its close-knit, fun-loving bartender community, this first iteration of the Manila Cocktail Festival will take place from September 12 to 14 in some of Manila’s most iconic bars.

Manila Cocktails Festival

Recognizing the trailblazers who have done the country proud on the global bartending stage, this year’s festival features Filipino bartenders who are currently helming bars around the region are coming home and joining forces with local icons to make some mighty tasty cocktails showing off the dynamism of the cocktail scene. 

Cocktail enthusiasts looking to get involved can attend any of the 18 guest shifts being held across Makati CBD, Poblacion and Bonifacio, sign up for a bar tour, or complete a cocktail passport to redeem exclusive MCF merchandise.

It’s not all about drinking, trade-focused panels tackling topics like sustainability, service and cocktail trends will provide a platform for those in the industry to exchange knowledge and experience.

“We have come a long way since 2011 when one of the first speakeasy cocktail bars opened in the country. This year three bars were recognized in Asia’s 50 Best Bars list, with many more gems to be discovered, and we are so excited to now have a platform to celebrate the cocktail scene and encourage more people to visit these great bars,” said Ken Bandivas, On Trade Commercial Manager, William Grant & Sons.
