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.

We all really enjoyed the class, our best work 'night out' in ages! Cocktails were tasty and we learnt some fun facts along the way. Thanks for a great night!

Helen Sanders Apr 2021

This is the third online company event we've done and by far the best. Tosh was engaging, funny, not at all egotistical (unlike another bartender who hosted us for another team-building 'do' earlier in Lockdown. Tosh knew his stuff, shared his knowledge, guided our group with ease and confidence, making it fun all the while. And it wasn't just Tosh, on the night, who was brilliant. The communication and customer service ahead of our event was awesome and I'd happily recommend the team from The Bartender and ClassBento every day of the week. Thanks for making our event both fun and memorable.

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.

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.
