Beach City Food Tours has expanded their tour operations by launching the first of its kind in Long Beach, a walking cocktail tour that offers residents and tourists alike the opportunity to sip boozy offerings from some of the city’s most popular restaurants and bars. Participants experience Long Beach’s eclectic East Village neighborhood through a unique sensory journey while learning about the neighborhood’s history, Hollywood connections and cocktail trivia along the way. The tour is currently available only in the East Village neighborhood but is expected expand to other parts of the city over the next several months.
The tour runs approximately 3 hours on Friday evenings and visits four venues, where a signature cocktail or cider & mead flight is offered. Curated small bites are included at two of the stops that complement the featured adult beverages. The guided tour is priced at $79 per person and participants must be 21 years of age.
“A guided cocktail tour was a natural expansion of our popular downtown Long Beach food tour,” said Layla Ali-Ahmad, founder of Beach City Food Tours. “Long Beach is becoming more and more known for its culinary scene, which includes craft cocktails created by exceptionally talented bartenders. Our tour is designed to give the cocktail lover a one-of-a-kind experience exploring the East Village neighborhood, venturing into both well-known restaurant/bars as well as some hidden gems.”
The stops on the East Village guided cocktail tour include:
- James Republic
- The Blind Donkey
- Great Society Cider & Mead
- Mezcalero and Padre
The tours boast an intimate experience with 4-12 participants and approximate quarter mile total of walking to the different venues. Private tours are also available. For more information on the East Village Craft Cocktail Tour and to book reservations, visit www.beachcityfoodtours.com.
