One of the most exciting, hands-on experiences that Dublin Bar Academy offers is the Bartender for a night. This is the perfect mix of entertainment and education, where each guest is greeted with a welcome cocktail upon arrival before sinking into the art behind mixology. This leisurely introduction is then followed by a Classic Cocktail Tasting, where guests have some time for sampling in anticipation of the Mix-Off Challenge, where things get a bit competitive!

Old Fashioned’s, Martini’s, Mai Tai’s and much more for you to sample on the night.
Outcome – what you will enjoy
  • Welcome cocktail on arrival

“We wouldn’t have another house party without hiring an event bar & cocktails staff. Our guests were blown away by the cocktail bar staff and really cool bar we hired, as well as the cocktail glassware”

House Party Cocktail Bar & Bar Staff
Yvonne, South Dublin.
“For our last house party we hired beer keys and pre batched cocktails which worked out really reasonable but were very impressive for our guests. It saved us a lot of work. People were able to serve themselves and be creative about how they served their own cocktails. It was well worth it. The kegs and cocktails were delivered and picked up afterwards so it was hassle free”
