Cocktail Workshops are back! September 22, 2021

After a long 2 years, we’re thrilled to be able to say our Cocktail Workshops are back! If you’re celebrating something special – a birthday, a hen do, just being able to see each other again – our workshops are a fun way of having a go at something a bit different.

We love giving you free reign behind the bar to learn a bit more about cocktails but, most importantly, get some shaking action in!


As part of our Cocktail Workshops, you can expect:

~ A fun 2 hours for 6 – 12 people

~ Try your hand at making 2 different cocktails to drink

~ Your cocktail bartender will make another 4-6 cocktails for everyone to taste

~ Exclusive use of our Garden Room for the rest of the evening or until 6pm if the workshop is in the afternoon

~ Take advantage of discounts available on our private party menu if you want to eat


We’ll do what we can to accommodate any requests and if you want to make your Cocktail Workshop part of a longer evening do, our Secret Garden and Garden Room are available to hire. Get in touch for details.

So if you’re looking to enjoy yourselves at a Cocktail Workshop in Manchester, we’d love to have you!

Cocktail of the Week: Pineapple & Black Pepper Margarita July 19, 2021
