LARGER GROUPS

Any time, anywhere, for groups of any size, we pride ourselves on offering 100% interactivity through our private cocktail classes.

Perfect for larger groups of six or more, our largest private class to date is 220 people, with all guests continuously and simultaneously learning the art of cocktail making and everyone being fully included throughout the class. Although our Fitzrovia base won’t quite be able to cater for a group of this size, we have plenty of larger venues nearby which would be suitable. Enquire now for details.

SMALLER GROUPS

Our public cocktail making classes run every Friday from 7-9pm at our central London location, as well as on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at our flagship venue in Shoreditch

These classes are ideal for individuals and smaller groups, or for those who want an idea of the structure of our classes before they book privately. You’ll be joining a wider group of other like-minded people, with a maximum of 4 guests to a bar and an average class size of 20 guests. 

VIRTUAL CLASSES

Inspired by the lockdown era, our virtual classes provide an environment in which to be sociable despite the distances between us.

Now you and a group of friends or work colleagues can learn to make cocktails from the comfort of your own home, all without compromising on our trademark interactivity.

MOLECULAR CLASSES

VIEW TESTIMONIALS

Would you recommend food?

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.

Is food included?

Not as standard, no. However, we are able to add food to most events at most venues. At our central London location, we are able to offer a wide range of cold small plates and deli boards. If you’d also like recommendations about where to eat before or after your class, let your event organiser know and we can book a table for you as part of the service.

What is the disabled access like?

The disabled access at the Gallery is quite extensive, and most areas of the venue are accessible via wheelchair.

How are bookings confirmed?

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.

I need to cancel my event, can I have my deposit refunded?

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.

When do I need to pay the final balance?

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

If I'm deaf or hard of hearing, will I be able to attend a class?

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.

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.

The Gallery is our permanent base for cocktail making classes in Fitzrovia. This unique space has built an international reputation over the past three decades for individuality, innovation, and boundless energy – the striking works of art lining its walls evidence their passion for Non-Western artistic traditions.

The Gallery is a unique art installation space, full of natural light and set in a converted town house.This distinctive space works really well for private group bookings of all sizes. The gallery is radiant, displaying remarkable artwork throughout the space, as well as huge windows that overlook central London. 

The gallery’s overall versatility, distinctive aesthetic qualities, and close proximity to the dynamic hub of the West End makes it an ideal location for our cocktail making classes – leaving you with no shortage of options before, after, and even during your experience.

Address – 2A Conway Street, Fitzroy Square, London, W1T 6BA

Meraki Bar – Hidden beneath the Greek Fitzrovia restaurant, you can access the bar from Foley Street, around the corner from the restaurant’s entrance. The interior is filled with plush sofas and velvet cushions on which to lounge while sipping cocktails, and bar food is easily hustled down for you from the upstairs restaurant. There are also private booths where you can enjoy your Mediterranean inspired cocktails in lavish surroundings; perfect for a romantic date or quiet meal before or after your class.

The Remedy Wine Bar – Located a short walk away from our Fitzrovia base, this cosy wine bar plays host to a rotating blackboard of different wines. The owner opens whatever he fancies – or thinks you might fancy – and chalks it up there for everyone to enjoy. They work with small quality-centred producers, and are quick to come up with a decent recommendation if you’re feeling a bit lost. There are some small Italian inspired plates to enjoy alongside your wine, and you can sit outside if the weather permits. It is a great spot for a date or small group of friends. 

Genuine Liquorette – Modeled after New York’s eponymous basement bar, these guys are challenging the conventional relationship between customer and bartender. There’s a self-service counter, where cocktails come on tap, or if you prefer you can order from a form, and the friendly staff bring it over. Cocktails are fun and playful, served in cans with unconventional garnishes. Both the tap room upstairs and the cocktail bar downstairs are relaxed settings with interesting décor – checkered floors and shelves packed with unusual spirit bottles and cans, in a New York liquor store – meets Victorian pub fashion. All this makes this the perfect hangout for larger groups to continue their evening after their cocktail class.

Homeslice (£) –  Fancy some 20” crispy-based pizza goodness in the heart of London, without spending a small fortune? Homeslice is your go-to. Having upgraded from pop up to permanent Covent Garden home, this second 70-cover restaurant provides a contrast to the Seven Dials site’s stark, bright décor as well as an expanded menu, a basement cocktail bar, takeaway counter and space outside too. Local lagers, craft beers, Prosecco on tap and house wines delivered in measurable magnums (simply pay for what you drink) all feature on the drinks list, making this the perfect location for larger groups looking to continue their evening after their cocktail class.

Salt Yard (££) – Salt Yard is a charcuterie bar and restaurant serving small plates which bring the best of Spain and Italy under one roof. It is currently in the safe hands of Head Chef Michael Carter, whose dishes range from the intricate to the beautifully simple. A short walk from Goodge St and Oxford Circus, Salt Yard is the perfect middle-of-the-road choice for a quick lunch, more lengthy celebratory feast, or simply a lovely glass of cold sherry at the bar before or after your cocktail class with us at our Fitzrovia venue.

Mere (£££) – An elegant and contemporary restaurant nestled in the heart of Fitzrovia, Mere offers a refined yet relaxed dining experience for you to enjoy before or after your class. Headed up by the well-known chef Monica Galetti (who avid fans of Masterchef may be aware of) and her husband, David, the menu is designed to celebrate the passion and heritage of husband and wife team, blending classical French with South Pacific influences. So, if you don’t mind spending a little bit above the average on your bite to eat, or you’re celebrating a special occasion, then it’s definitely worth the 4-minute walk from your cocktail making class to your plate.

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.

Read More...

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?

Our cocktail making classes have been enjoyed by budding mixologists from 18 years of age to 88, for a wide variety of occasions. Everything we do is geared towards making it an event to remember for you and your group.

WHEN?

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.
