I recently organised a cocktail making course for my best friend's hen do in Newcastle. Upon making the booking I received excellent service from David, who promptly helped me to organise at 12pm slot on a Saturday for a party of 14. 3 cocktails each for a bargain payment of £25, where only a £5 deposit per person was needed in advance. All of the staff I spoke to whilst booking were very helpful and accommodated my need to await a couple of responses from some of the party whilst holding my booking, free of charge, for a few days.
We had a lot going on over the weekend and I was slightly nervous that everything went to plan, but with The Living Room I needn't of worried! We had a friendly greeting on arrival and were taken downstairs to a large bar area where we met Ram, our cocktail guide. Ram is an asset to have working for The Living Room. She was friendly, fun and most importantly patient when we were getting mixed up with our measurements and spirits! For starters Ram made us a cocktail each that we chose from a varied menu. 2 of our members had mocktails (for a reduced payment of £15) and one of these was changed at the last minute on the day, which was sorted without any problems.
We then paired off, which was a great way for people to get to know each other, and decided on a cocktail that we would like to make together. Then we went behind the bar with our pairs whilst the rest of the group sat around the bar, chatted, drank and took photos. Ram talked us through each step and was very knowledgeable. Once everyone had made their first drink we got to choose another to make, encouraging us to change partners.
We spent around 1 hour and a half taking part in the cocktail making course and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It was a great way for everyone to bond, have a laugh, have a drink and take lots of photos, where it is clear everyone is having a fantastic time. Considering the fact that it was August in Newcastle (peak Stag and Hen do season) The Living Room was fantastically priced, offered friendly service and the perfect location for a really special occasion. I could not recommend this venue and service more highly for an event that you may be wanting to celebrate. It was faultless.
Many thanks to Ram, David and the rest of The Living Room staff for making my best friend's hen do such a success.
