This is a virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, GQ, Daily Mirror, The Metro, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. The Bartender (liquor license number: 1307148) will deliver a Box to you - this is a physical DIY cocktail kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. We ship nationwide. You must be 18+ years old to purchase this Box.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Welcome to The Bar From Afar, the only virtual bar set up by the very best bartenders in the UK, if not the world.

Learn how to make three cocktails at home whilst having fun. Your expert bartender slash teacher will help you mix your drinks and give you some great home hacks to mixing great drinks whilst the pubs are closed. Everything you need will be sent to you in your cocktail kit (see below).

This live online class is perfect for a group of friends celebrating a special event, or staff looking for fun virtual team building activities. Boxes can be shipped all over the UK and much much further afield.

Want to share this amazing cocktail kit with a family member, housemate, or an imaginary friend? Our couples boxes are an extra £35, giving your loved one a £5 discount to join in on the experience.

Whether you need fun things to do in Edinburgh, Manchester or Bristol, no matter where you all are in the UK, we can deliver a fun and tasty workshop.

Modern Classics menu:

  • Dark and Stormy
  • Espresso Martini
  • Tommy's Margarita

Mocktail options are available upon request too, we use free-spirits such as Lyre's, Mockingbird and Caleno. Due to the prices of these, the box cost is the same.

Please note: Public classes require a minimum number of students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform and reschedule/refund you, so please watch your email prior to the class

Our team of bartenders have been mixing cocktails professionally since 2003, initially mixing drinks in people's homes and gardens, entertaining on a small and entertaining scale. Everything exploded with the launch of our website in 2005 and since then we've been shaking our stuff and teaching cocktail enthusiasts how to make cocktails, from small groups of hen parties, all the way through to entertaining corporate away-days of over 200 delegates.

Since 2020, we've taken our offering online, which, paired with our penchant for tech and our love of teaching, we created The Bar From Afar, a place for groups to get together and have fun with drinks as a group again, whether it be for a work's Christmas party, or a birthday of close friends desperate to see each other and have a bit of a boogie at the same time.

With us, you won't just be taught how to make some drinks, and we won't drone on about the intricacies of gin variants or the differences between Russian and Polish vodkas. Instead, we want to have fun with you - we miss making drinks face to face! We want to bring the fun of visiting a bar direct to you at home.

Really enjoyed the class and the cocktails were delicious!
It was nice to do something that felt like going out while in Lockdown too.
The cocktails were easy enough that we can re make at home which was a bonus.
Loved the box and presentation, thought this was a lovely touch.
Would really recommend.

The class was fantastic. Tom was brilliant. This was a present for my partners birthday, it was so much fun. I highly recommend!

Naomi Rahman  •  Feb 2021


Excellent host, all essentials provided, instructions were superb, Tom glided through teaching cocktail making in a fun way covering the history and basics. Great music background which was clearly selected to match the cocktail theme. Highly recommend bar from afar and if I am ever in Bristol, will definitely visit them for their awesome cocktails - they taste amazing!

We had a great time.
Leis was very engaging and knowledgeable. He managed to keep everyone upbeat and the team (22 people) had a fantastic time.
Perfect for corporate teams

Louise Acus  •  Feb 2021


Tom the bartender was great and the drinks he taught us were delicious! So much fun!

In all I would give 4.7 stars if I could. We had items missing in two kits and a big issue with UPS (but that was the bartenders or ClassBento’s fault). Lewis the manager was very helpful and fixed everything he could, plus was very prompt with replying to emails.

Tom the bartender was great and the drinks he taught us were delicious! So much fun! In all though if could give 4.7 stars I would, we had a few items missing from two of the kits and there was a huge mess with UPS (but that’s not the bartenders or Class Bentos fault). Lewis the manager was very helpful fixing why he could though and was very prompt with answering emails.
