5 Reasons to Choose Cocktail Classes in London for Your Birthday Party

Hands-on, educational and loads of fun, our cocktail classes in London are high up on our list of most popular birthday experiences – and it’s easy to see why! Alongside your loved ones you’ll shake, stir and slurp your way to delicious cocktails and mocktails, all in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.

They’re loads of fun!

Birthday parties are all about having fun and celebrating your special day with those you love. Our cocktail classes just happen to be one of our most popular fun things to do in London – and it’s easy to see why!

In a lively, laid-back environment you and your gang will be getting hands-on and stuck into shaking and stirring, looked after by a local mixology maestro. You’ll be able to have a go at flavour pairing, blending and building some classic cocktails - covering all the basic skills needed including preparation and presentation. The emphasis at a cocktail class with us is firmly on fun and having lots of laughs, so don’t worry if you encounter some slips and spills along the way – it’s all part of the process!

Making the most of the fully stocked bar and beautiful fresh ingredients at your disposal, at a cocktail class you and your fellow partygoers will be free to indulge your imagination and pretend you’re a brilliant bartender for the day whilst having lots of laughs. Recreate a favourite tipple like old fashioned, daiquiri or margarita, or go off-piste and put together a summer cocktail flavour fusion of your own!

Enjoy an activity that’s suitable for everyone

If you’re under pressure to find a birthday party activity everyone can enjoy, don’t stress. Our London cocktail classes are designed to be suitable for all abilities and ages – even complete beginners! 

A lovely local mixology expert will be on hand to make sure everyone is getting involved and has all the help they need to make the most of their cocktail making experience. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch up and chat with your buddies as you muddle and mix your favourite cocktail combinations!

Get creative with cocktail making

If you feel like getting creative for your upcoming birthday activity but don’t fancy getting crafty, a cocktail making class is a perfect choice! Engage all five senses and get your taste buds tingling with a variety of gorgeous ingredients at your disposal.

One of the essential skills of cocktail making is creativity, so don’t be afraid to let your imagination lead the way. You’ll learn to make the classics like cosmopolitan and pina colada, of course, but you’ll also have an opportunity to invent your very own creation. Your signature recipe will need a name, too, so be sure to have plenty of fun coming up with some catchy, menu-worthy titles. Be as bold and daring as you like – you may even come up with a new modern classic!

Catch up over a cocktail (or mocktail!) with your favourite people

At one of our London cocktail classes, you’ll be learning how to make cocktails, of course, but you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to have a good old chinwag!   

Whether you’re bringing the group together after some time apart or welcoming friends from further afield, a cocktail making class offers a chance to chat and catch each other up on how you’re doing and what’s been going on since you last touched base. It’ll be just like being at a fancy cocktail bar or your favourite nightclub – without having to shout over the music!

Learn an exciting new skill

How many birthday parties have you been to where you’ve learned a brand new skill whilst celebrating someone’s big day? With one of our cocktail making classes, you’ll learn the art of mastering mixology secrets in a fun party atmosphere!

One of our passionate resident cocktail experts will be guiding you through the essential skills needed to mix up some magic cocktail creations. From pouring and pitching to dashing and splashing, they’ll share absolutely everything you need to know as you embark on your journey from budding bartender to master mixologist. After the cocktail masterclass, you’ll be able to share your skills with your loved ones and build on them as you recreate what you’ve learned at home. 

Our mixology classes offer a truly unique experience you’ll remember for years to come. You’ll take away magical memories and some expert cocktail making knowledge to impress your family and friends with!

Enjoy your own exclusive bar experience

Usually, at a birthday party, you might often find yourself heading off to a bar or a club, but with one of our cocktail making classes in London you’ll get the best of both worlds. Benefitting from your very own fully stocked bar, you and your mates can sip your favourite tipples, chat and soak up the good vibes and party atmosphere – the only difference is this time, you’ll be making the drinks yourselves! 

No lengthy queues for the bar, expensive cocktails or waiting outside to get in – just good music, great company and lots of fun!

Can I book a cocktail making party near me?

Our London cocktail classes can be found at various locations in and around the city, so you’ll find one at a time and place to suit you. Explore your local area, or discover a new place you’ve never been to before – the choice is yours!
