Welcome to Negroni Week, presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari. Imbibe launched Negroni Week in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. Since 2013, Negroni Week has grown from about 120 participating venues to over 12,000 venues around the world, and to date, they have collectively raised over $3 million for charitable causes.
For one week in September, bar and restaurants will mix classic Negronis and Negroni variations for a great cause. To participate, each venue signs up at negroniweek.com, chooses from our list of official charity partners, and makes a donation to that charity. Then they can return during and after Negroni Week to make additional donations to their chosen charity. After Negroni Week is complete, we tally up how much was raised collectively by all of our participating bars, restaurants and partners.
We hope that you will join us in safely celebrating this year and supporting this fundraising effort. Don’t forget to keep tabs on the Negroni Week action on Imbibe’s Instagram and Twitter feeds (@imbibe) and by following the #NegroniWeek hashtag and Campari’s social media channels (@campariofficial, and @campariUSA). And, of course, be sure to mix yourself a Negroni!

I registered my venue, but it's not published on the website—what's going on?
Most likely, you have not completed a piece of information that’s required upon signing up. If you log into your account, you should be able to tell if this is the case. If you don’t complete all of the required information, your profile will be saved as a draft and marked as unpublished in your account.

Why can’t I find my venue on the ‘Add Your Venue’ page?
To make sure all of your information is correct, we are using Google Places to find your venue. Head to google.com/business to make sure your venue is registered in Google My Business. If you’re already registered with Google and your venue is still not coming up, try typing additional information into the venue name box, such as your venue name plus the city.That usually does the trick! If you’re in a city or country without access to Google Business, click here to add your venue. If you continue to have problems, contact us at [email protected]
I have 30+ venues—do I need to register each one separately?
If you have 30 or more venues you want to register for Negroni Week under one account, please reach out to us at [email protected] and we can help you with this process.
I'm a consumer—can I make a donation on the website?
In 2020, due to bar and restaurant shut-downs caused by COVID, we collected consumer donations for the hospitality industry. However, in 2021, Negroni Week is returning to its usual format of collecting donations from bars and restaurants, so online donations are only open to registered venues. In the meantime, you can still show your support by patronizing your favorite participating bars and restaurants who you know have made donations upon signing up, and by purchasing Negroni Week items in our shop.
