We all marvel when we see an expert at work, making complex tasks look easy or illustrating their knowledge on various subjects in a meaningful way.

St. James’s Hotel & Club gives you the opportunity to become an expert in some quirky, creative skills. All classes are conducted by experts in their field and include practical demonstrations, the opportunity for questions and a goodie bag to take away. The classes make excellent gifts for friends, family or partners and are perfect for corporate bonding, hen and stag parties.

You are invited to join us at one of our exciting Cocktail Masterclasses. Discover the very finest creative concoctions with tastings, demonstrations and the chance to recreate your all-time favourite cocktails.

The Cocktail masterclasses are ideal for corporate entertainment with a twist, or a more social occasion with friends where you will enjoy a hands-on group tutorial led by one of our experienced and skilful Bar team members.

The Cocktail masterclasses are suitable for smaller parties, they are both fun and informative and will begin with a welcome mocktail or tea/coffee on arrival. Then, while enjoying a delicious tapas, learn how to make and shake three classic cocktails before trying your hand at mixing up your very own.

The cost is £65 per person and includes VAT. A discretionary 15% service charge will be added to the bill.
