This class was SO much fun. Went with a group of 10 people and everyone had a blast. The teachers were amazing (super knowledgable, entertaining, high energy), venue is a great vibe and overall service was outstanding. Really good value value too considering drinks, class and food are all included! Have already recommended to work colleagues, and would love to come again. Thank you

Venue was awesome. Small and bursting with energy. Fabulous vibe.
Teacher was full of enthusiasm and knowledge.
We learnt about a variety of things that make a good, watched the signature cocktail being made and then we had the opportunity to make a cocktail of our chosing.
Great value for money. We had the pizza and tapas option with the cocktail making class and cannot fault any of the food.
Such a great day!

We had Astrid teach us how to make a variety of cocktails. We learnt so much and had a lot of fun. The tapas afterwards was delicious and it made for an amazing wedding anniversary. Highly recommend as an amazing experience they will custom cater for you!

Sean Brady Oct 2023

Great class, really enjoyed.
Booked for myself and my girlfriend.
It’s a class of about 15-20 ppl.
The teachers made it fun and interesting, definitely recommend.
You also get fed quite a bit of tasters throughout the session. Good value for money and good fun!

Shaun Townsend Oct 2023

The teachers were extremely helpful and patient. They explained everything that you needed to know and then ran us through it again while doing the cocktail making. Great experience would definitely go back to this place.

The cocktail making class at Lil Darlin' was a fun and interactive experience to do as part of a large group, and was incredibly great value for money! All the staff were super accommodating and attentive to our group's needs and did a great job managing the activity from start to finish. All of the cocktails from the menu were incredibly delicious and the food was very tasty. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a great team bonding activity or party event with your closest loved ones!

The instructors made the whole experience so fun! They were also accommodating for those of us who wanted to make mocktails instead. The venue is magical with all the fairy lights and greenery around. The cocktails were some of the best I've ever tried. Love the themed cocktails and flavour profiles they had. Would definitely recommend this a group activity!

Tiffany Jun 2023

This cocktail making class was such a fun after work activity, we learnt how to make their signature cocktails (and mocktails) and treated us to a delicious dinner afterwards! Would definitely recommend if you're in the area :)

So much fun! The instructors were very knowledge and very entertaining. The food was great and the venue had a great atmosphere. Perfect for a birthday or hen's party. Will definitely do this class again. :)

Laine Jun 2023

Such a fun and unique cocktail class! The menu is a sweet tooth's dream, we made the white choc and hundreds and thousands cocktails and loved them both. It was so cool being able to actually go behind the bar and the friendly bartenders even taught us some impressive flair techniques. Would highly recommend!

I recently attended this cocktail class and had the best time!
The instructor was incredibly fun and engaging throughout. Not only was the class enjoyable, but it was also highly informative, with the instructor sharing valuable knowledge about mixology techniques and the history of cocktails throughout. The cocktails and food were all delicious and I would do this class again 110% :)

So much fun! Went with my team mates and it was a cute bonding session. The cocktails were yummy and the venue has a very nice fairy woodland vibe. Would be so cute for a hens party or birthday party. They can also help you make the drinks into a mocktail if you don't drink alcohol. Pizzas and tapas were yummy too. Brownie swirls were the best

Our teacher was very friendly and funny, keeping us entertained throughout the class. It sure looks easy until you try yourself. The Fairy floss cocktail was my favourite. Mocktails were available too. The pizzas were so thin and delicious, the atmosphere was perfect and great for a team catch up. Thank you for having us I'd thoroughly recommend this class

The most welcoming and friendly atmosphere!
I highly recommend this class - it's great value, with some yummy food and of course drinks included, and the teachers are fun and friendly. Perfect for small or large groups!

Betty Ho Mar 2023

Our teachers had great energy and knowledge, and they were also so funny and warm! I would highly recommend this class purely for them. The cocktails and food were great as well, though I wish for the price they threw in one more pizza! But overall a great experience thanks to the teachers!

Calli Tsipidis Feb 2023

The entire experience was fantastic - plenty of food and substantial drinks (great value for money) and the class itself was interesting, engaging and fun for all participants. We were attending as part of a hens weekend - the Lil' Darlin team had set our table beautifully with greenery and flowers (a beautiful and unexpected surprise) and let us come early to add our own special touches. Lil' Darlin went above and beyond, highly recommend this class!

Tysha Whiley Feb 2023

The venue was stunning! And the boys behind the bar were super friendly! I’ve recommended this class to a few friends to try out! It was well worth the money. I had the best time!

I celebrated my 30th Birthday here with 20+ people.

The Lil Darlin' team went over and beyond to look after our group. Had pairs of 2 people in the group making cocktails or their choice. Pizzas and sides served was delicious. The whole thing class was very well paced and the whole group thoroughly enjoyed themselves. There was a group of 5+ people looking after our whole group and service was amazing as we had the whole place to ourselves for the afternoon. Highly recommend the place!

We had a blast at a team building event at Li'l Darlin. The whole session was relaxing and allowed us to set the pace. Our teacher was knowledgeable, friendly and the venue provided a great atmosphere to get away from the CBD. Would most definitely rebook for client team building events.

Great class, great venue. Everyone enjoyed it! They even cater to non drinkers. Highly recommend!

Can you cater to gluten free and vegetarians? If we have non-drinkers along do you have other beverages/ mocktail options?

Yes, we'd be happy to cater for all of that (including mocktail options).

I'd like to book with just one or two guests, can I join a "public" class?

Try this class instead

How does the ‘tasting’ of the cocktails work?

Our bartender makes the cocktails during his presentation and hands them around - everyone tries them with a straw.
