PRIVATE CLASSES – Any Size, Any Time, Any Location, Any Day

We have been specialising in delivering top-quality cocktail making 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.

We host the majority of our masterclasses at TT Liquor, where we have 4 dedicated cocktail making class 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.

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 totally 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 you 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.

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!

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.

Our cocktail making classes have been enjoyed by budding mixologists all ages, for a wide variety of occasions. Everything we do is geared towards making it an event to remember for you and your group.

We are lucky enough to be able to perform these classes 7 days a week and at any time of the day you wish. Due to this flexibility, we teach over 20,000 guests all the skills they’ll need to get mixing every year.

Testimonials - 'What a fantastic evening - it far exceeded our expectations..'

“What a fantastic evening – it far exceeded our expectations. We were warmly welcomed, despite having been delayed on the train, by our mixologist, Louana, and given our first cocktail which was most appreciated! She then explained to us about the different cocktails we would be making and showed us how to make each one before we made it. The set up was great; the room we were in was perfect for our group of 6 people and was impeccably clean, as were all the glasses and utensils. In all we made 4 cocktails each and to finish there was a competition judged by Louana, between the teams to make a winning cocktail, which was hilarious. A really great evening, made even better by Louana who was great fun. Thank you.” – Tess Bass.

Testimonials - 'It was a brilliant evening..'

“Great venue. Went to the Molecular Cocktail making class last night with a couple of friends and it was a brilliant evening. Matilda who ran the class gave just the right balance of instruction and alcohol! Great bar downstairs also, to grab one for the road! Definitely recommend the evening.” – Simon Roose, Google Review.

Testimonials 'AMAZING! So well organised from email 1 to the end of the event..'

“Attended the cocktail making class for 13 people, followed by time in the bar. AMAZING! So well organised from email 1 to the end of the event. Really a unique and wonderful and extremely fun activity. Will definitely repeat and recommend! Well done guys!!” – Sara Caba, Google Review.

Testimonials - 'Timing, perfect. Structure, perfect. Cocktails, perfect. Music, perfect.'

“Not sure if K was K or Kay.. anyway. His cocktail making class was absolutely on point. Timing, perfect. Structure, perfect. Cocktails, perfect. Music, perfect. Loved loved loved from beginning to end. Our bench should have won the invention competition at the end, but you can’t have everything. Highly highly recommended. Have been to other cocktail making classes and this one smashed them all out of the park. Relaxed, informative, fun, trusting. Great.” – paulyb3000, TripAdvisor Review.

Testimonials - 'Many of the big bosses commented that it was the best event I had organised..'

“I arranged for Mixology to come to my office for a staff event. All of my colleagues were very impressed by the cocktails that we made and the staff that helped us throughout the night. Many of the big bosses commented that it was the best event I had organised so far! The cocktails were great and it was great value for money. Well done Mixology!!” – Melissa Watson.

Testimonials - 'Pretty damn good value for money...'

“Really nice venue, excellent (and patient) tuition, and given the volume of booze you get to play with and the fun you’ll have it’s actually pretty damn good value for money.” – Russell Carswell, Local Guide

Cocktail Making Classes up the Shard

Mixology Events hosted one of our cocktail making classes 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.

Cocktail Masterclass at a Scottish Manor

Mixology Events took one of our cocktail making classes all the way to Scotland as the finale of a corporate team-building weekend in an ancient gothic manor house. 

The setting was impressive – one of the most spectacular places we’ve hosted our cocktail making classes – and well worth the trip.

There were some logistical issues due to the age of the building, but through prior correspondence and careful planning we were able to make sure the event went as smoothly as our regular cocktail making classes.
