If the winter’s chill has taken the edge off a cold beer, the Tokyo Hot Cocktail Fair is here to set things right.
Enjoy something sweet, sour, or even a little spicy as you warm yourself up with these unique cocktails. The organizers promise that even occasional drinkers will find a mix they love here!
What to expect
This festival will be held in Ueno’s Onshi Park and focuses on, you guessed it, hot cocktails. Catch several stalls offering unique hot drinks, with everything from beer to spirits.
Apart from the drinking, you can also peruse the food stalls for snacks to go with your shots. You can also enjoy some performances. Shows include dancing, live music, and live painting demonstrations.
While entry to the festival is free, you’ll need to pay for your food and drinks with tickets. You can buy these on the day for ¥800 per drink ticket. However, to avoid queues, you can also buy tickets online here. Not only will you avoid any standing around, but they’ll snag you a slight discount, with a set of three drinks coming in at ¥2,250 for weekends and ¥2,100 for weekdays.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
