Charleston’s The Gin Joint will have you shaking, stirring and sipping on your next date night or intimate event. The Gin Joint now offers private, one-hour cocktail classes for up to 12 guests at its pre-prohibition-style cocktail bar. Guests can opt to extend the class by 30 minutes.


Become a mixologist and learn from the best at Charleston’s first craft cocktail bar. Each class is personalized to the skillset of the guest. The Gin Joint will provide a specialty cocktail menu during class to facilitate an easy transition for first-time drink makers. Other classes for more expert bartenders will follow a more laid-back style.


Classes can be scheduled beginning at 11 a.m., through to one hour before the bar opens. Time varies on weekends and weekdays. Private classes can be booked by emailing drinkproper@theginjoint.com, and start at $200. Beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages are also available. A small selection of food offerings will be provided.


“These private classes are really just meant to be whatever the guest wants them to be. Whether that’s learning the building blocks for cocktail making, making the best old fashioned their brother has ever had, or learning more about how to work with a specific spirit they love,” said Wells Bolt, owner, The Gin Joint.
