Whether you're planning a stag or hen party in Newcastle, want to celebrate your birthday in style or just fancy a night out with a difference, a cocktail masterclass is always great fun - especially as you get to enjoy your creations afterwards!
Quirky venue The Botanist in Newcastle city centre is known for its super-creative cocktails, and its mixologists are only too happy to share their knowledge with you at their Cocktail Masterclasses. They offer a choice of themed cocktail making classes so you can pick the one that best suits your party, plus you'll have your own private area so you can feel like real VIPs.
Banyan is a glitzy bar and restaurant known for its creative and signature cocktails, so why not learn how to make them yourself guided by your own personal bar tender?

Stylish and sassy, Florita's Miami Bar and Tropical Garden really leads the way in Newcastle cocktail making classes for hen parties. Not only will you be spoiled with cocktails, shooters, party games and sweets and finger food (if you like), but you can add a 'Butler in the Buff' to your class too to make it extra cheeky! It'll be a night out with the girls that you'll be talking about for years to come, so be sure to bring your camera.
The focus is firmly on fun in the Cocktail & Mixology Masterclasses at Revolution Bar Newcastle, and you might find yourself handcuffed to a partner while attempting to create a cocktail, riding the 'vodka train' or even taking a dreaded chilli shot - but it's all part of the fantastic experience. To fuel your party, you can upgrade your class with nibbles or even a two or three course meal, making it the complete night out in Newcastle for cocktail lovers.
Down on the Newcastle Quayside, chic cocktail bar Livello offers the perfect way to kick off your night along the Tyne with their own take on the Cocktail Masterclass, which you can enjoy in their exclusive Opulenza VIP Lounge.
