From measuring ingredients to delicious sips, learn how to create classic cocktails with our hands-on workshops.

Our classes are loved by beginning home bartenders and experienced mixologists alike. Classes are interactive and open forum, with a focus on proper cocktail tool techniques, balancing drink recipes, cocktail party tips, ice management and more!

Personal coaching and demonstrations will help ensure your success when you’re whipping up cocktails at home for yourself, friends and family.


All classes are held from 7:30 - 9:30 from our store at 69 Holland Street in Davis Square, Somerville, unless noted otherwise in the class description.

Class Policies:

All class sizes are kept small, usually between 8-12 people total. Due to the nature of our classes and limited class size, they are non-refundable, except in the case of a cancellation by The Boston Shaker due to inclement weather or emergency (please see below.)

As such, if you know that you are unable to make your purchased class date, please contact us as soon as possible, and more than 48 hours in advance of class start time. You may change to the next available class date, transfer your seat to another person, or convert your class purchase to store credit. Please email or call us during store hours to do so. As class space is limited, and we often have a waiting list, your alerting us as soon as possible to any changes is always much appreciated. 

Should you find yourself unable to attend within 48 hours of your class date, please call us directly, and we’ll work with you to figure out a solution. 

If The Boston Shaker must cancel due to inclement weather or emergency, you may either request a full refund, transfer to another available date, or convert your class purchase to store credit. Refund requests due to class cancellation must be made within 14 days of the scheduled class date.

If you have any other questions, you can get in touch with us and we'll be happy to help.

Unfortunately, due to technical limitations we cannot remove automatic shipping charges. Please choose In-Store Pickup on the shipping screen OR view your cart and enter code CLASSNOTSHIPPED, to remove the $3.37 USPS fee.
