Cocktail Classes at The Violet Hour make for the perfect gift or group activity. Learn cocktail history and fundamentals while sipping on the subject matter.

Private Cocktail Classes range from 4-30 guests, can be booked on specific dates, and can be customized to best fit your group's interests. Food options are available upon request. Evening classes are available Sundays-Thursdays, starting at 6 pm. Daytime classes are available any day of the week. Ask us about available dates and times.

Public Cocktail Classes are available 2-3 times a month, or more depending on demand. Public classes are 2 hours long, interactive and hands-on. They're a great way to spend a spring afternoon while gaining some new skills and knowledge. Check out our upcoming classes and reserve your spot now!
