The world's best cocktail bar is coming to Cork for one night only

Perfect for any cocktail-lovers in Munster.

When the sun is out, it's an unwritten law that 'Here Comes the Sun' by The Beatles has to be played on the speakers and it's fitting that 'The Fab Four' have inspired one of the cocktails that will be on the menu when the world's best bar arrives in Cork for one night only.


Sun, drinks, tunes. What's not to love?

Cask, in Cork’s Victorian Quarter, will be hosting a one-night-only bar takeover by London’s 'American Bar at The Savoy' on Wednesday, 1 May.

The Savoy’s 'American Bar' is the oldest cocktail bar in Britain and it's also one of the most renowned bars in the world.

It was named World’s Best Bar at Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards 2018 and it also received the prestigious accolade of World’s Best Bar at World’s 50 Best in 2017.


During the one-night takeover, they'll be creating some of their favourite drinks and they're bound to go down a treat.

The menu pays homage to the legendary musicians and songwriters that have entertained guests in the American Bar for decades, with each cocktail created with one of the bar’s most iconic songs in mind.

Drinks will include the Sun Sun Sun, a tribute to The Beatles’ sun-drenched classic 'Here Comes The Sun', which contains Bombay Sapphire Gin, White Créme de Menthe, Orange Blossom, Yuzu Wine, Lime and Egg White. The #Nomakeup cocktail was inspired by Aretha Franklin’s 'Say A Little Prayer', and contains Grey Goose Vodka, Coconut Wine, Spiced Pineapple, Martini Bitter, and Champagne.

The takeover will be co-hosted alongside Cask’s Andy Ferreira and Carl d’Alton, who both represented Ireland internationally as winners of the World Class Irish Bartender of the Year competition in 2017 and 2018 respectively.


The American Bar Takeover event starts at 7pm on Wednesday, 1 May at Cask, which is is located at 48 MacCurtain Street in Cork’s Victorian Quarter, next door to Hotel Isaacs and Greenes Restaurant.
