Dundee Cocktail Week returns this month with more than 40 bars, restaurants and shops signed up.

Between October 6 and 15, the event will see a series of special offers for customers.

The 10-day event is designed to encourage people into the city centre and to support hospitality businesses as they face increasing challenges.

We have all you need to know in the run-up to Dundee Cocktail Week 2023.

What is Dundee Cocktail Week?

Customers can buy a wristband for Dundee Cocktail Week, which can then be used in participating businesses.

The wristbands give people access to a range of discounts and deals.

The event is being run in collaboration with Scottish charity The Ben – which works to help those who are facing financial hardship within hospitality.

How much is a wristband?

Wristbands to unlock the exclusive offers cost £8.95.

A £1.50 booking fee will also be applied at the checkout.

Wristbands can be bought online and purchased throughout the week.

Where do I collect my wristband from?

Wristbands can be collected from the dedicated kiosk in the Overgate Shopping Centre – located on the upper floor next to Primark and New Look.

The wristbands will be available for collection from 11.30am to 4pm each day.
