IN-STORE CRAFT COCKTAIL TECHNIQUES CLASSES WILL RETURN IN 2022!

We aim to provide the very best in hands-on cocktail education and are currently working to bring back classes on a consistent schedule. With that in mind, we are preparing to relaunch our in-store Craft Cocktail Techniques Class in 2022. We can’t wait to share our updated in-store class offerings in the new year!

ANY CURRENT CLASS GIFT CARDS MAY BE APPLIED TOWARDS STORE MERCHANDISE OR FUTURE CLASSES AND DO NOT EXPIRE.

PRIVATE EVENTS:

In the meantime, we are considering private virtual and in-store events on a case-by-case basis. We currently offer bespoke corporate team-building events in a virtual environment and will continue to do so through 2021 and beyond. This custom event adapts our longstanding Craft Cocktail Techniques Class to your favorite spirits and drinks.

Private events are available for a flat rate teaching fee ($500). In addition, we also offer a class kit that includes all the tools and glassware needed for the event as well as recipe cards for the cocktails demonstrated in the class.

Class kits are available to be sent to participants across the US. The kits are an enduring reminder of the class and the team engagement fostered by a shared activity— both a souvenir and a practical set of tools for years of home bartending.

Private classes must be booked with sufficient lead time to enact your ideal vision. Classes with purchased kits cannot be booked with fewer than four weeks of advance planning. 

If you are interested in booking a private event, please fill out the form HERE. A member of our staff will be in touch shortly. 

ABOUT OUR CLASSES:

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.
