What you'll do

YES, WE ARE OPEN! Come and join us for a mixology lesson, with modified COVID-19 protocols. We are also offering virtual mixology lessons! Inquire to learn more!
—————-

Jump right into a hands-on learning experience with an expert mixologist in the comfort of our bar! We provide everything from the ice to the glassware, so all you have to do is sit back and soak up the knowledge, and enjoy learning about your favourite cocktails.

It's simple: We’ll decide on three of your favourite classic cocktails, and we'll be there to help you celebrate - whatever the cause - with a fun and memorable mixology experience.

Our lesson will be focused on the tools, techniques, and ingredients used to craft the cocktails, but we will also cover much more, including:

- How to set up your own home bar
- The history of each cocktail & the history of prohibition
- What’s happening “behind the scenes” at your favourite bars

We look forward to teaching you everything that you’ll ever need to know about mixology.

Other things to note:
Please note that in order to enter the studio, you will need to use the door directly to the left of “Pizza Libretto,” then proceed through the door straight ahead of you, at the top of the landing (do not use the door on the right).

Water & snacks will be provided.

This was such a great experience for me and my friends, we got to learn so much about Mixology and really celebrate my friend's going away in style. Peter showed us some Irish cocktails since she's moving to Ireland, taught us some fun trivia and was very patient with us once we hit cocktails 2 and 3 and had a bit of a challenge staying focused 😅 our drinks were amazing, the ambience, experience, trivia questions, and environment was great. Would definitely recommend this experience. Thanks Peter!

The mixology lesson with Peter was super fun and awesome! My friend and I had a truly great time 🤗. Peter is very fun(ny), entertaining, informative, and just overall an fantastic teacher in the art of mixing some darn good drinks 💯. We were immediately made to feel welcomed. Plus, we both loved that as soon as we had signed up for the lesson, Peter had taken the time to reach out and ask what our preferences - in terms of drinks, tastes, etc. - were; and so the fact that we got to make (and drink) drinks we would actually try outside of the lesson itself made the experience that much better!!! 😊

We celebrated a bachelorette with Peter’s mixology experience. It was one we will never forget! Peter was super engaging, made the day special for the bride to be, created personalized drinks the group would love and taught us lots about mixing cocktails. Thank you Peter for making it a memorable experience. Cannot recommend this enough and we will be booking again in the future!!
