Public Cocktail Class

Thursday, August 16
6:30pm-8:30pm
Want to learn from the pros? Look no further than our lead bartenders for an immersive night of cocktail training. We begin our experience with a tour of the facility (with drink in hand) followed by a guided spirits tasting. Then we make our way into the Tasting Room for a hands-on mixology experience where you’ll learn all of the basic bartending terminology and techniques you’ll need to stun your friends and family. Take home the recipes for the 3 unique cocktails you’ll craft during your time here. Tickets are limited for an intimate experience.

Industry Night

Monday, August 27
6pm-Midnight
We know that working in the food & beverage industry takes panache, fortitude, and the unflappable ability to “smile and wave” – consider this a token of our appreciation. We bring one of our favorite bartenders in on the last Monday of every month to create unique drink specials while offering sweet tunes, free za, and some fun bar games. We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Owen from Moxy Restaurant, up in NH to try his delicious drinks on the 27th. Come get served.

GenPEM at BBD

Wednesday, August 29
6:30pm-9pm
The Peabody Essex Museum is one of the most highly regarded art museums here in New England. Truly a hidden gem. They’ve put together a night of cocktails, curated discussion of some of the boozier items in their collection, and an art instillation by our neighbor and renowned sculptor, Bill Thompson. Tickets are available for only $25 and space is limited – snag your spot today!
