Why Cocktail Classes in Melbourne Are Perfect for Every Event

Why Cocktail Classes in Melbourne Are Perfect for Every Event

Sam Bowden

Our cocktail classes in Melbourne are one of our most popular workshops and for very good reason! Mixology courses work for nearly every possible event and function! Whether you’re looking for something to jazz up the hens night, get the office together for a fun team building event, or putting the finishing touches on your engagement party, our Melbourne workshops will give your event the garnish you’ve been chasing! Still need convincing? Check out our compelling evidence below. 


Cocktail classes for team building events

Team building events are often a source of major anxiety for employees. Too many have suffered through terribly thought-out corporate trust activities, droll event speakers, and messy pub crawls. Turn Friday office drinks into an interactive, full team experience with our mixology classes in Melbourne! 

Cocktail classes are like covert team building events. With the distraction - and reward - of alcohol, cocktail workshops have a way of subverting the delicate art of corporate team activities by establishing a festive environment! Making cocktails is a fun way to get the staff working together instead of just sitting and drinking. It’s also the perfect activity to bring any new faces into the fold as it’s engaging and social in a pressure-free environment. Also, if you organise it for a Friday arvo, your team will get the much-deserved drink they’ve been waiting for all day, and you’ll be able to get them bonding and working together. 


Cocktail classes for birthday party ideas

Ahh yes, birthday parties. The holy grail of annual personal celebrations. It’s important to keep those birthday events fresh and exciting. If you’re willing to splurge a bit on either the birthday boy/girl or yourself (depending on who’s doing the party planning of course), one of our mixology classes may be the perfect addition to your celebrations. 

If like many, your birthday is a mix of family and friends, a cocktail class is a great way to bring them both together. Your family wants to spend some quality time with you, while you and your friends want to - shall we say - embrace the festivities. With our mixology workshops in Melbourne, you can, quite literally, mix the two together! Break down boundaries and have Nanna sipping an espresso martini with your best mates! 

One of the best parts about our cocktail classes in Melbourne is their versatility. Many can actually travel directly to you, and offer special packages and additional extras to ensure your birthday party gets the bounce it needs! Cocktail classes can be a wonderful way to celebrate milestones, such as a 21st, or a 30th. Or, if you’re really feeling up to it, book it for a 60th and let the golden oldies show you how it’s done. 

Cocktail classes for bucks party ideas and classy hens party ideas

Here at Classbento, we find it hilarious; the idea of having to explain why a cocktail class is perfect for a bucks weekend or a hens party. We will, though, just to be on the safe side. 

Whether you’re organising a bucks night or a hens party, chances are that alcohol will play some part in the pre-planned agenda. How can it not be? Melbourne has one of the best bar scenes in the country, and it would be a shame not to take advantage of this before the big day. 

Taking it one step further with a mixology class, however, is sure to make the evening truly memorable. Get your pre-marriage crew together and dive on into one of the best cocktail classes Melbourne can offer. Go behind the bar and discover what it takes to shake a perfect martini, absolutely crush a cosmo, or marry the flavours in a margarita. Most of our cocktail workshops in Melbourne offer two to three cocktails, leaving you plenty of room - and time - to continue the festivities. 


Cocktail classes for engagement party ideas

Before the hens night, there’s the engagement party. Now, we’re not suggesting you shake up some cocktails for both your engagement celebrations and your Hens (but by all means, don’t let us stop you) but often engagement parties need a bit of jazzing up. With cocktail classes that come directly to you, you can throw your engagement party at any venue, house, apartment or barnyard and a certified mixologist will make sure your party really gets going. It’s also important your guests do something with their hands before your imminent nuptials starts becoming contagious, and everyone starts to feel the love in the air. Feel the love with a Mojito instead; far fewer politics involved.


Cocktail classes for baby showers ideas

Ok, so obviously the baby doesn’t drink, and it’s probably best that the parents don’t either. But there’s only so many times you can play “pass the newborn” before guests start getting restless. Melbourne’s mixology classes are a wonderful addition to the cheeseboard and easily-consumable Starbucks jazz playing in the background of your baby shower!

By running a cocktail class, you can actually have greater control over how much your guests drink, as it’s important to enjoy yourself, but not over-exert the party animal at a baby shower. If everyone has two-three cocktails, you’ll get the booze fix in a very creative and playful environment. 


Cocktail classes as gifts for couples

Wedding anniversaries require a certain je ne sais quoi, and to be honest, a cocktail class in Melbourne may not be ideal. But if you’re looking for something small to spice up the evening or date night is coming up and you can’t think of anywhere to go, why not explore one of our Melbourne workshops in mixology? 

Experience gifts are becoming more and more popular, and learning to create a cocktail with your special someone is a unique way to let them know you enjoy their company. It’s important in a relationship to keep creating new memories, and shaking up a martini is a very pretty feather in that cap. Loosens up the shoulders too, if you catch what we’re putting down. You smoothie, you. 


Our cocktail classes in Melbourne are as versatile as they are delicious, and have a range of applications. Before booking, always check with the class instructor to see if they offer any additional extras and packages to give your experience the personal touch. Many of our mixologists do both public and private bookings, so always enquire as to what’s best for you and your group. Happy shaking!
