‘Spirited’ Education At Black Dog Ballroom


Black Dog Ballroom’s bar team has joined forces with award-winning Mixologist Massimo Zitti to design the new series of themed cocktail masterclasses. Manchester’s cocktail lovers can pick from the three packages on offer: the Mexican-inspired ‘Poco Loco’ package, the New York disco style ‘Studio 54’, or the prohibition-themed ‘Boardwalk’ option.

Taking its inspiration from the passion and energy of Mexico, the ‘Poco Loco’ option offers a fun-filled masterclass, guaranteed to give customers a taste of the sun, as well as a feel of it… expect fire! Guests can enjoy classic South American-style cocktails including the Hurricane, Frozen Margarita, and Tequila Sunrise.

The Studio 54 package on the other hand, is the embodiment of its namesake club in cocktail masterclass form. This option is perfect for tipplers who love the New York disco scene. Cocktails will be focused around popular drinks of the time such as a Manhattan, New York Sour or Long Island Ice Tea.

Classic cocktail lovers who wish they had lived in the prohibition era, are advised to opt for ‘The Boardwalk’ package which reflects the secret speakeasy concept within the Black Dog Ballroom venues. Guests will have the chance to learn about the origins of classic drinks such as the Sazerac, Mary Pickford, Bellini and Bloody Mary whilst sipping on some of their own creations.

At £25 per person the classes are perfect for hen and stag parties, quirky dates or special birthday celebrations. Classes can accommodate parties of 4 to 20 people.
