Bartending was traditionally a man’s world, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been women behind the bar and in the distilleries. We’ll celebrate Women History Month with a class where you’ll meet some of them through their cocktails, from golden age giants like Ada Coleman (head bartender at the Savoy in London), to wartime Bessie the Bartenders, to modern trendsetters like Audrey Saunders and Ivy Mix.
Your booking includes light snacks (pretzels, nuts). The Last Word is closed during the class, so no food service is available. The class includes a combination of history and stories, technique instruction, and hands-on making of cocktails. Plus sampling, of course! Total consumption is equivalent to 1.5-2 cocktails per person over the 2 hour class.
Please note that we have a restricted table layout and use communal seating. Parties of two will almost always be seated with at least one other party of two. Groups of four or more will usually have their own table. You may request a private table in the “seat with” section of the booking form, and we will attempt to honor your request, but there is no guarantee that one will be available.
