Absolutely brilliant time making cocktails. Kay was an excellent tutor and explained the history and the methodology of the drinks we were making. It was fun and interactive and an excellent day out. Highly recommended.

  • Tom and Ashley were incredible! A group of 10 of us came here after work and had such a great time. The cocktails tasted brilliant and the process was well explained. There was a great variety of alcohol and they don't scrimp on the shots! Will definitely be coming here again and would recommend to large groups for a great evening activity :)

  • We came to the cocktail making class as a work social. Firstly, the drinks we were making were all delicious and proper boozy. Secondly, the room and the whole building are absolutely stunning and such a lovely setting to be in. Most importantly, our mixologist, Marcus, was an absolute gem. His instructions were very clear and his trivia unmatched. He had unwavering patience despite how rowdy some of us got towards the end and such positive energy.

    Highly highly recommend and will definitely be back soon!

We have multiple venues across London.

Although our flagship venue in Shoreditch, TT Liquor, is certainly worth a visit, we have a range of purpose-built venues spanning the capital

Had a great time at their Soho location for our Christmas party. Couldn't fault their professionalism, level of tuition, and - considering the amount we drank - the value for money, too. Will definitely be recommending. Cheers guys!

We have a variety of cocktail masterclass studios spread across the vibrant centre of the capital, whose abundant bars, restaurants, museums, landmarks and nightclubs make it an ideal location for before or after your class with us. Have a browse of some of our key central London locations below.

Soho: The famously bustling streets of Soho feature an eclectic mix of dining, nightlife, and shops, leaving you with absolutely no shortage of things to do and experience before or after your exclusive cocktail experience. The area also benefits from being one of the most accessible in London if you’re commuting in – with Euston Station, Marble Arch, and Waterloo stations mere minutes away.

Fitzrovia/Covent Garden: Our base in Fitzrovia is a great central location for us to host your cocktail making class. The West End is just a stone’s throw away, as is energetic Oxford Street, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus, meaning there is no shortage of things to do and places to explore before and after your exclusive cocktail experience. Guests commuting to and from London only have a short trip to Euston, King’s Cross St Pancras and Paddington.

Clerkenwell: Clerkenwell is one of the creative hubs of London, where new creative industries meet the old warehouses and Victorian boozers. It is perfectly located between the bustle of Central London and the quaint and sophisticated restaurants and cafes of Islington. It is a great location for those wanting to visit the relaxed venues of Exmouth Market before or after your cocktail class, or alternatively, stop by the iconic Barbican. Transport links include Farringdon, Chancery Lane, Angel, and the Barbican Underground Station.

London Bridge: London Bridge is located just south of the river from central London, with its main attractions being the Shard and Borough Market. It is a bustling area full of great restaurants and pubs to visit before and after your cocktail class. It is only a short walk to Southbank, where you can find the Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre as well. London Bridge Station is easily accessible from King’s Cross St Pancras and Liverpool Street via Bank.

The patchwork of leafy green suburbs, Victorian avenues, and bohemian urban sprawls of north London make for a diverse and picturesque backdrop for your cocktail making class with us.

Camden: Located in central north London, Camden is the famed epicentre of the Punk scene, with quirky markets selling everything from street food to handmade jewellery, this is for those who want a peek at London subculture before or after their cocktail class at our Camden base. A stones’ throw from King’s Cross St Pancras and Euston, book your class in Camden for easy access to Central London, or for the chance to visit the area’s many music venues, bars, or pubs after your class.

Islington: Nestled in between central London and the leafy suburban areas of Highgate & Stoke Newington, Islington is a great location for your upcoming cocktail class. Boasting streets of beautiful Georgian houses, a trendy high-end shopping district, award-winning comedy clubs, restaurants, and plenty of pubs, there’s more than enough to be getting on with in N1, whether it’s stopping off for street beers on the canal before your class, or getting stuck into a Michelin-star meal afterwards.

South of the Thames there is a veritable treasure trove of things to do and places to discover. Often seen as the lesser-known but much more picturesque cousin of the northern half of London, south London’s nightlife, food selection, and bar scene has come on leaps and bounds of the past few years to the extent that it can now rival anything you can find anywhere in London. Check out some of our cocktail making hubs below.

Waterloo: Just south of the river from Trafalgar Square and Somerset House is Waterloo, which is not only one of the main railway stations, but also leads you on to the bustling Southbank area. a bustling hub of pubs restaurants towards the Southbank end of the area. Southbank, which begins at Waterloo is home to riverfront pubs, cafes and restaurants, where you can take in the city skyline from across the river. This is the perfect central location for being well-linked to transport, as well as offering a range of bars and restaurants to enjoy before and after your class.

Clapham: Clapham is one of the most eclectic and lively areas south of the river, with the high street and Clapham Common offering a range of places for alfresco drinking and dining. Wander down the high street’s alleys, like Venn Street, for markets and outdoor seating. Book your cocktail masterclass here for easy transport links north of the river via the Northern Line, including King’s Cross, Euston, and London Bridge. On top of all this, it’s only a 10-minute bus ride from Brixton, making Clapham the perfect base from which to explore both sides of the capital.

East London is an area that is simply steeped in history, with the converted warehouses and wharfs dispersed throughout the area standing as brick-clad homages to the area’s colourful mercantile past. As well as being the area we proudly call home, it boasts one of the highest concentrations of bars in the world, a wide range of shops, restaurants, and an array of outdoor food markets, making east London one of the most rewarding places to visit for your cocktail making experience.

Shoreditch: The London hub of our cocktail classes, TT Liquor, is located in the vibrant area of Shoreditch, east London. Also the area where it all began for Mixology Events, Shoreditch boasts an array of pubs, bars, and award-winning restaurants to continue your evening after your cocktail class. Brick Lane and Dalston are also nearby, offering an abundance of things to do before and after your masterclass. Closer to home, there is an atmospheric cocktail bar – The Cellar Bar – located just beneath your feet below TT Liquor’s specialist liquor store, the shelves of which you’ll be free to browse at your leisure. Give us a call and we’ll be able to organise a table booking at TT or beyond.

Liverpool Street: Liverpool Street is one of the epicentres of London, as it is located between the business district and Shoreditch, the trendy nightlife hub. Not only is there direct access to one of the main railway stations, but the area is filled with great restaurants and bars, perfect for a stop off before and after your cocktail class. Explore the food stalls and markets of Spitalfields and Brick Lane, or have a drink in one of the bars, usually located either underground in a speakeasy-style basement, or nestled high atop nearby skyscrapers.

Dalston: Dalston is located just north of Shoreditch, and one is one of the liveliest and most exciting neighbourhoods in London. Bars and restaurants line Kingsland Road, the main artery that takes you from Stoke Newington into the heart of Shoreditch. Visit some of the most unique and quirky bars in London, or stop by somewhere for delicious cheap eats before or after your class. There are music venues for late-night dancing, and buses into Shoreditch if you fancy more variety. Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction are both Overground stations that easily connect you to Islington, and West London.

West London has developed a reputation over the years for indulgent shops, affluent suburbs, and boutique hotels. Whilst, of course, it boasts all these things in abundance, west London is a much, much more diverse and vibrant area than many give it credit for. Come pay one of our west London cocktail making studios a visit and see for yourself before, after, and even during

Notting Hill: Popularised to a global audience through the 1999 smash hit of the same name, Notting Hill is a picturesque and diverse neighbourhood located in west London, with a unique atmosphere. The location is perfect if you are travelling into London through Paddington, and if you are looking to experience the hustle and bustle of London without the tourist crowds. There are quirky shops and vintage markets, as well as a wide range of pubs and restaurants to visit before and after your cocktail class. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting on the last weekend of August, you could even lose yourself in the sights, smells, and sounds of the Notting Hill Carnival.

Chiswick: Chiswick is located West of Kensington and Hammersmith, and has a quaint village feel to it. Stroll along the river, visit the nearby Kew Gardens, or alternatively have a drink at one of Chiswick’s historic 18th-century pubs. You can also visit the Fuller’s Brewery, one of the oldest in the UK. This location is for those looking to hold their Cocktail class in a relaxed setting, amongst greenery and picturesque landscapes. Chiswick Park Tube Station, Chiswick Railway Station, and Gunnersbury are the best travel links for getting to and from Central London.

Our seasonally-rotating cocktail menus have a little something in there for everyone. We also offer seamlessly non-alcoholic options for each drink, meaning nobody gets left out.

Such a fun and wonderful experience! I expected to go in, make a couple of small cocktails in a large group but every time we each got a cocktail to ourselves and Kay was there to help us. Would recommend anyone thinking of booking to go for it, it was a lovely evening.

Equipment & Interactivity

Each guest’s bar station is also equipped with all the necessities in every good bartender’s armoury, including stainless steel shakers, strainers, muddlers, bar spoons, Mexican elbows, and more. Having multiple pieces of each maximises the amount of time each participant spends getting hands-on making their own cocktails.

Masterclass FAQ's

All your really need is an empty space for us to come and set up in, we can come to offices, houses, gardens, tents, rooftops…as long as we have the space and the access we can set up anywhere, you don’t need anything on your side at all.

We’d recommend you allow a space of about a metre and a half depth and a metre and a half-width for each bar, that allows enough space for the bars to be set up and for people to stand behind them. The bars are assembled on-site and pack down to be fairly compact so there’s no need to really worry about door-width.

Absolutely, we can do a class at any time of day, week or year, we just need enough time to set up all the bars beforehand and break them down again afterwards, this is usually between about an hour and two hours either side of the class depending on the size. We can be very flexible when coming to you.

We’re happy to work with most spaces but for instance, in an office, it wouldn’t work in a room full of desks. We also try and avoid using spaces with lots of columns or other obstacles that might block peoples view of the instructor. Anything on a slope wouldn’t be ideal either. We are based in London and are happy to come and do a site visit anywhere in the city if you’re unsure whether or not your space would be suitable.

Generally, after a longer conversation with your event organiser about your event, you will need to put down a 30% deposit to confirm your booking and provide a home or company address to detail. This will all be sent over via email, along with the terms and conditions outlined. The final balance will be due a week before your class or event, generally once numbers are confirmed.

While food isn’t necessarily part of the package, it is certainly recommended. As you can imagine during two hours of making and drinking cocktails, it’s quite a good idea to line your stomachs. Even if the addition of food is a relatively last-minute decision, we will be able to cater to your needs if you get in touch with your event organiser a few hours beforehand.

The vouchers give you unparalleled flexibility when booking onto our public classes. Essentially, you don’t have to choose a specific date for your session – it’s an open voucher. We run our classes twice a week, generally – Friday from 7pm-9pm and Saturdays from 1pm-3pm. They work really well as a gift, for example, if you know someone who would love to come to one of our classes but you don’t know an exact date they’re perfect.

Recipe of the month: THE RAIN (SUPA DUPA FLY)

The drink takes its inspiration from the modern classic and industry favourite, The Paper Plane.

Recipe of the month: HENNY HIGHBALL

Our simple but delicious highball consists of Hennessy cognac, peach bitters and London Essence White Peach & Jasmine Soda served tall with plenty of ice and a slice of grapefruit.

Recipe of the month: GIN & ELDERFLOWER JULEP

The classic combination of summery British ingredients: gin, apple juice, lemon and elderflower liqueur, makes for a deliciously refreshing and drinkable cocktail.

We’re more than just bartenders.

Our hosts are of course experts in their field, but they’re also pretty damn nice people to have around. You don’t need to just take our word for it, either…

Mixologist helping out group of ladies making cocktails in a class

Just enjoyed a fantastic Mixology Zoom session with a group of work colleagues. Led by Kay who was fantastic! Really slick operation, and learned some core cocktail skills. It was so exciting to receive the cocktail kit in advance, with so many new flavours and techniques. Thanks Kay and the Mixology Team!

Event Organiser

For our classes, we have a dedicated and personal team of event organisers based at our flagship venue in Shoreditch. The same event organiser will stay with you from planning and booking your event, on the day and post-event. Your more than welcome to come down visit our unique, purpose-built class set-up to have a look around, meet your dedicated event organiser, and stick around for a well-deserved cocktail afterwards, or we can organise a site visit to your preferred venue.

Your Hosts

Our entire team, from bartenders to our head office, have years of experience in the industry, and with Mixology Events. They each go through rigorous training to learn how to deliver the best cocktail making classes on the market.

Not only this, each and every one of them are enthusiastic, friendly, and – generally – pretty lovely human beings to have around. Don’t just take our word for it, why not meet them for yourselves?

Phone, email or organise a site visit!

We understand the importance of verbal communication, and we know that some questions simply can’t wait for an email response.

That’s why if you’re considering booking an event, we encourage you to give us a call, organise a site visit, or come visit our team. That way we can discuss your ideas, since every event is unique.

Customisation

Depending on your location, there are a wide range of customisation options & potential class add-ons to choose from.

Whether it’s organising food accompaniments, adding in some professional cocktail kits, customising the class itself, booking meeting spaces to use alongside your class, or even having a few drinks before and after at our cocktail bar, just let your event organiser know and we’ll handle the rest.

Please click the relevant tab below for more details.

Nicely lit subterranean cocktail bar with bar stools

Presentations: Many of our London venues are well-equipped to host presentations before your class, with many of them fitted out with rooms of a variety of sizes, projectors, or Apple TVs. This also makes them well-suited for any film or video screenings you wanted to incorporate into your experience.

Meeting Rooms: Related to the above, a wide range of our London venues boast a range of rooms of different sizes available for short term rental. All are fitted out with WiFi, tables, chairs, and refreshments such as coffee and pastries, which makes them perfect spaces for short team meetings, award ceremonies, or conferences before your class.

Reception & Post Class Drinks: We’re truly lucky at Mixology to have so many unique and interesting venues to work out of, a few of which have cocktail bars on-site, or just a stones throw away. This makes them extremely well-placed for a couple of post-class drinks, or for a quick glass of wine or beer while you wait for your session to begin. If you’d like us to organise a table booking for you, let your event organiser know in advance and we can take it from there.

If you’d like a bite to eat, we have a wide variety of food options for before, after & even during your class.

Many of our locations across London include the possibility of adding on small platters, nibbles, and deli boards – available for pre-order – for guests to snack on during the class and help break up the alcohol! Also available for pre-order at select venues are a variety of freshly made hot small plates, which make perfect light dinners or slightly more substantial nibbles.

We also have long-standing relationships with a variety of pop-ups and up-and-coming chefs, so if you’d like to go that extra mile when organising your class let us know your preferences and we’ll see what we can do.

Finally, if you’d rather we give you a few recommendations about where to eat before or after your class, simply let one of our event organisers know in advance and they’ll happily list off a few spots – and even reserve a table for you – no problem.

Cocktail making kit in a wooden box

There are a variety of options when it comes to customising your class add-ons, and the cocktail competition prizes received at the end of the session.

For example, you might want to offer our special cocktail kits as prizes for the competition winners in the masterclass. These are the professional-standard kits that the participants use during the class.

If you’ve got a generous streak and would like to purchase them for the whole group, we have discounts available for that.

Depending on your location, we are also able to source a wide variety of alcohol-related gift sets for you, or if you’d like to personalise the prize or have it as one big surprise that’s no problem at all. Just let us know, and we’ll keep it hush-hush for you.

Although we highly recommend our traditional class for its range, versatility, and skill level, we are able to tailor any aspect of this for our private classes to suit your preferences.

Given enough notice beforehand, we are able to switch out any of our classic cocktails for a list of your choice. We’re also able to tweak the number of cocktails in our line-up, or the alcohol content in each, to suit most occasions.

So whether the class is being organised for your best friend who can’t drink anything but gin, fancied organising a Tiki-themed cocktail class in your back garden, or just wanted to get a boozy history class by learning some all-time classics of the Prohibition era, let us know and we can make it happen.

If you’d like some inspiration to get you started, take a look at our online Recipes resource.

Cocktail making host at the front of a row of cocktail bars in a large rooom

At Mixology Events, we pride ourselves on being as flexible as possible – and this certainly applies with regards to timings.

We’re fully flexible on what time you want your class to begin – whether you’d prefer it at the crack of dawn or the dead of night, we’re more than happy to accommodate.

On top of this, the duration of the classes themselves are adaptable. We can tailor the length to suit most briefs – whether you wanted a quick 15-minute rolling masterclass, a half-length mini masterclass, or a 3-hour cocktail making marathon, we are more than happy to accommodate.

Private Classes – Any Size, Any Time, Any Location, Any Day

We have been specialising in delivering top-quality cocktail classes for over a decade, and in that time we have continuously improved and fine-tuned our experience so we can proudly call ourselves the best on the market.

Many bars offer their own versions of cocktail masterclasses, but they are often not fit for purpose. It is cramped, not fully set up to allow all your guests to continually practice their cocktail making skills for the whole duration of the class, and you are often learning in front of a public audience in busier bars. Not Ideal.

Where?

We host the majority of our masterclasses at TT Liquor, where we have 4 dedicated masterclass lounges that are fully set up when you arrive – freeing you up to make cocktails continuously for 2 hours without waiting for anyone to set anything up for you.

...

We do that all before you arrive. The rooms come in a variety of sizes and cater for groups of 6 up to 80.

If you have a location in mind we also specialists in bring the complete set up with us. All the bars, with all the equipment, all the liquor, fresh products and ice. You simply let us know where you would like it to be and we set it all up in less than an hour and a half. We then offer the same experience you find at TT Liquor at any location you can think of.

Equipment & Tuition

Each bar also comes fully stocked, so that everyone on that bar (max 5 guests per bar) can make cocktails throughout their masterclass, with no interruption and no standing around watching. There are 3, 6, 8 and 16 bars set up in the 4 respective cocktail making lounges across our four-floor venue at TT Liquor and we have a total of 42 of these bars so we can perform a masterclass for up to 210 guests, all still receiving the same experience and all still making cocktails together!

We also provide you with your own professional bartender, who will be your dedicated host for the session. After putting together a reception cocktail for you and your guests, they will then guide you through 4 different cocktails, letting all your guests in on the various tricks of the trade to make your drinks taste better than ever. The perfect skills for your guests to take away with them to show off to their friends at their next garden party or barbecue.

Our expert bartenders are at the very top of their profession and are rigorously trained to deliver the best cocktail making experience possible for groups of up to 80. Their job is to be entertaining and engaging with all your guests, while simultaneously offering unparalleled insights on how to make your cocktails taste amazing. You may not get it right the first time around, but they will work attentively with each member of your group to hone their skills.

Competition

To end the session with a bang, each bar will be set loose to create their own cocktail, testing out their new skills and competing head-to-head with the other bar teams. Your expert host will then have a taste of each creation and crown the winner. There is nothing quite like a bit of healthy competition and 5 cocktails each to bring a group together!

Who?

Great mixology class with Jamal! He made it fun, informative, and he went out of his way to incorporate requests and make recommendations so that everyone was satisfied. I would definitely recommend this as a team bonding event or even for a night out with friends!

FAQ's

You can buy a voucher via the form above. Alternatively, give us a call on 03333 44 77 65 and we’ll happily book them over the phone for you.

They last 12 months exactly from the purchase date. If something comes up and you give us a call within that time frame, get in touch and we can be pretty flexible when it comes to extending them.

As soon as we receive a voucher order they’re sent out via first class post. Depending on how busy Royal Mail is, you’ll usually receive your physical vouchers in 2-3 working days.

Yes of course. If you purchase them and just give us a call straight afterwards, or drop us an email, we’ll respond to let you know whether you can pick them up. Generally, if the liquor store is open you’ll be able to collect them in person. The shop is open Monday-Wednesday from midday-10pm, and Thursday-Saturday from midday-11pm.

Yes, we do. We can send printer-friendly vouchers over to you via email so there’s no need for you to wait for the postman.

The vouchers give you unparalleled flexibility when booking onto our public classes. Essentially, you don’t have to choose a specific date for your session – it’s an open voucher. We run our classes twice a week, generally – Friday from 7pm-9pm and Saturdays from 1pm-3pm. They work really well as a gift, for example, if you know someone who would love to come to one of our classes but you don’t know an exact date they’re perfect.

Our vouchers are non-refundable but we will be happy to reschedule you to a more suitable date.

All your really need is an empty space for us to come and set up in, we can come to offices, houses, gardens, tents, rooftops… as long as we have the space and the access we can set up anywhere, you don’t need anything on your side at all.

We’d recommend you allow a space of about a metre and a half depth and a metre and a half-width for each bar. That allows enough space for the bars to be set up and for people to stand behind them. The bars are assembled on-site and pack down to be fairly compact so there’s no need to really worry about door-width.

We’re happy to work with most spaces but for instance, in an office, it wouldn’t work in a room full of desks. We also try and avoid using spaces with lots of columns or other obstacles that might block people’s view of the instructor. Anything on a slope wouldn’t be ideal either. We are based in London and are happy to come and do a site visit anywhere in the city if you’re unsure whether or not your space would be suitable.

Absolutely, we can do a class at any time of day, week or year. We just need enough time to set up all the bars beforehand and break them down again afterwards. This is usually between about an hour and two hours either side of the class depending on the size. We can be very flexible when coming to you.

Depending on your group size we will need 1 ½ – 2 hours before and after your class to set up and break down.

All we need is a clear space to set up. We will bring everything we need to host the class including, the bars, equipment, glassware, ingredients, ice etc.

Yes we have hosted classes outside before, just be aware we will need a flat ground to set up the bars properly.

We are based in London but can travel anywhere you need us. We have hosted cocktail masterclasses in Scotland all the way to Cornwall.

Flexibility

Our mobile classes are 100% Flexible. We’ve been at this for over a decade, and this experience allows us to carefully cater our classes to a wide range of preferences & customisation requirements.

We are able to tweak the number of cocktails in our line-up, the theme of the class, the format of the competition at the end of the session, or even tweak individual drinks to match dietary requirements or personal preferences, allowing us to tailor our classes to suit nearly every occasion imaginable.

...

We are also able to offer our classes both physically and online, tweak the start times and class duration/length to suit you, put on a series of rolling masterclasses, or split the cocktail making up for a break in between to help work it into a wider event. Simply let your dedicated event organiser know your requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

On top of all this, we are able to bring our classes with us to you – wherever in the UK and beyond you happen to be. Over the past decade and a bit, we’ve set up bars down on the Thames, on the 53rd floor of The Shard, in a Scottish manor house, and in more back gardens & offices than we can count! We have also delivered boxes and tuition to all four corners of the globe thanks to our virtual cocktail classes.

Get in touch with our dedicated team today to talk through your plans and we’ll make it happen.

Any time you wish, 7 days a week. Our unique portable bars also allow us – space permitting – to set up right inside your office and clear away again with minimal fuss.

Case Studies

Mixology Events hosted one of our masterclasses on the 53rd floor of The Shard, located at London Bridge, central London. The cocktail making class was for 40 people and took place soon after The Shard opened in February 2013.

The security at The Shard was appropriately tight, which we took into consideration when organising the logistics of the class – we made a location visit in advance which helped to ensure there were no difficulties in keeping to schedule.

We provided 8 cocktail bars, fitting 5 guests per cocktail bar station – allowing each guest their own workspace to maximise interaction and involvement throughout the class.

The Shard is a great venue to host our classes, providing unparalleled views and providing insights into such a significant building.

One of the best things about running our mobile mixology masterclasses are the opportunities we get to travel to new and exciting places across the country. From Surrey to Scotland we’ve held our interactive cocktail masterclasses at venues and spaces up and down the UK.

We love London, it’s home to our business and most of our team, more than a few of whom were born and brought up in the big smoke, but spending every day in the city can make it easy to forget about things like trees and stars and sheep. That’s why we’re always so pleased when we get to host one of our cocktail workshops at places like Birch.

Situated just outside the city in leafy Cheshunt, Birch is a hotel, spa, restaurant and wellness retreat located in a sprawling manor house and gardens. We have been lucky enough to work in partnership with them bringing our immersive cocktail classes to their grounds for a number of corporate getaways and private functions.

Whether setting up under marquees on their spacious back lawn or in one of their dedicated function rooms, working amongst the natural setting of this modern country club is always a welcome occasion.

Earlier this year we were invited up to host a mixology class for fifty people as part of a company getaway. Arriving at the palatial premises we were given the usual warm welcome by Birch’s staff and directed past their Restaurant, The Zebra Riding Club to their back lawn where we’d be hosting the class.

Under one of their huge purpose built awnings we set up 12 of our custom-built mobile mixology workstations ready to welcome our guests. The class was a resounding hit with attendees, learning to make a bespoke menu of specially chosen cocktails including fan-favourite, the espresso martini. During the class, Birch’s kitchens provided hors d’oeuvres for the guests to graze on and afterwards, cocktails in hand, the guests were invited to enjoy a barbecue and bonfire under the stars.

It’s always a pleasure getting to host our cocktail classes in such an idyllic setting and we’re looking forward to our next trip up to Cheshunt. In the meantime we’ll continue to offer our cocktail masterclasses in venues all over the UK from ballrooms to back gardens.

If you’d like us to bring our mobile set up to your party or event just give us a call or contact us through our website to make a booking, we can;t wait to see where we’re gonna end up next.

We took our mobile cocktail making class up to Hertfordshire for a hen party – we hosted the class outside in the sunshine!

The hens had rented a beautiful large house near Welwyn for the day, and the weather was absolutely perfect for al fresco cocktail making.

Our mobile classes can be taken almost anywhere – and we’ve done a number of events outside now, all of which have been great successes. It’s a great way to take advantage of the British summertime – check out the event we did for Procter & Gamble last summer.

Cocktail classes are also perfect hen party material – after 6 cocktails everyone seems to be in a good mood and up for a party!

We can host our cocktail classes at our new permanent home, TT Liquor, on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch or we can take them with us to almost any external venue of your choice throughout London or the UK.

About Mixology

Since being set up in 2009, Mixology Events has been dedicated to all things related to high-quality alcoholic beverages. We offer an extensive range of experiences – from tastings and bar hires, to award-winning 100% interactive cocktail classes which we’ve taken with us on the road to a huge range of venues across the UK and beyond.

Although we have a permanent home and purpose-built flagship venue in the form of TT Liquor on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch, we have hosted 100s of classes in a wide range of interesting venues and locations and we love to explore and push the limits of what’s possible.

Read on for some of our selected case studies and see if we can provide some inspiration for your event:

FAQ's

We are able to add food to most events at most venues upon request. At our flagship venue in Shoreditch, we have a range of charcuterie boards available thanks to Cobble Lane Cured. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available upon request.

While food isn’t necessarily part of the package, it is certainly recommended. As you can imagine during two hours of making and drinking cocktails, it’s quite a good idea to line your stomachs. Even if the addition of food is a relatively last-minute decision, we will be able to cater to your needs if you get in touch with your event organiser at least 24 hours beforehand.

Yes, we can cater your class with hot bowl food at select venues. Please get in touch with your event organiser to double-check that yours is suitable, and for current menus.

We usually serve bar snacks and deli boards at the beginning of your class with your welcome cocktail, but you can discuss this with your event organiser.

Yes we can offer vegetarian or vegan options, please ask your event organiser for details about our full range.

No, there’s no dress code per se. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, bearing in mind you will be on your feet for around two hours. If you’re coming in fancy dress, please ensure that you highlight this to your event organiser beforehand. Nothing too crude or crass, but generally you’re in a private room so you can come pretty much as you wish.

We’re afraid our disabled access at our flagship Shoreditch venue is very limited at the moment. However, we do have a variety of other venues across London and the UK which have ample disabled access. Please highlight any disabilities in your party with your event organiser beforehand, and we’ll happily advise on a suitable venue.

Yes of course. We have catered for deaf classes before, generally the clients will have organised an interpreter. Again, let your event organiser know beforehand and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

This will be shared when you make your booking, but we’ll need your confirmed numbers 7 days before the class is scheduled. This ideally will be conducted via email with your event organiser, who will send you your final invoice. If there are any changes less than 7 days before your class, it is unlikely that we will be able to amend the final invoice, so please keep in touch with your event organiser.

Generally, after a conversation with your event organiser about your event, you will need to put down a 30% deposit to confirm your booking and provide a home or company address to detail. This will all be sent over via email, along with the terms and conditions outlined. The final balance will be due a week before your class or event, generally once numbers are confirmed.

Once we have sent you the deposit invoice your event has been confirmed, therefore if you wish to cancel your event you must do this by email so we have written proof and you must do this at least 14 days prior to your event date to be eligible for a refund of your deposit. If you have booked your event with less than 7 days lead time, a cancellation must be received within 24 hours of your invoice being sent to avoid liability of payment.

The balance of your event must be paid 7 days before your event, if payment has not been made someone from our accounts team will contact you to make payment over the phone.

No, unfortunately not in the classrooms.

No, due to our licence under 18s will not be able to attend your class in any capacity at any venue – non-alcoholic cocktails or not.

  • This was my first experience with Mixology Events and what an amazing intro into cocktail masterclasses. I did this with a partner but you could easily take part on your own or with a group of friends. Led by a guy called Kay who made us feel comfortable and at ease from the very start. He was funny, engaging and really clear in what he wanted us to do how to make each cocktails. I actually feel like a proper cocktail bartender now. Would highly recommend it! I’m not going to spoil it but there’s a special surprise at the end! Great fun and will 100% will take part again.
