We had a great afternoon at Li'l Darlin! We had the venue to ourselves for a few hours and all experienced how to make a cocktail as well as trying a few. The staff were lovely and the food included was amazing. Highly recommend!

• Apr 2019

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.

This was great fun!! We did a corporate "team building" style class. We were well looked after from start to finish. They tailored the class to our needs, the teacher made it very engaging and entertaining and everyone had a good time. Thanks for hosting us!

Had the best time with Alex and Nick. Cocktails and food were amazing. Highly recommend the class. We were lucky enough to have a small group and no one else there, it was the best 60 bucks spent ever! Will definitely be back.

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.
