Choose from Three Options

  • $49 for a Martini Workshop for one (a $99 value)
  • $90 for a Martini Workshop for two (a $198 value)<p>

Taught by master-mixer Micah Dew, the hands-on workshop covers recipes for more than a dozen martinis and other drinks. Along the way, Dew imparts manoeuvres for making multiple drinks at a time, mixing for pitchers, as well as dry, wet, burnt, and dirty permutations of each martini. Held Friday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., this workshop is designed with the home bartender in mind.<p>

  • $59 for a Bar Chef program for one (a $125 value)<p>

Dew takes the cocktail class a step further, explaining step-by-step how to infuse spirits with the flavours of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Students will learn to manifest a “Beeting Heart” among other unique drinks, with some wafting hints of cucumber or blood orange. Dew also covers herb and fruit reductions and candied holiday cocktails. The Bar Chef program takes place on Monday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. <p>

Metropolitan Bartending School

Micah, Luch, and Alicia of Metropolitan Bartending School draw on over a decade of bartending chops apiece to impart the art of alcoholic alchemy. Students enrolled in at-home or comprehensive certification courses might recognize Micah Dew as the resident drinkspert of the Province newspaper, or remember his dazzling “Extreme Bartending” performance of juggling and fire-breathing for a stunned Rachel Ray. Between also working a bartending job five nights a week at The Roxy Vancouver, Micah lends industry-veterans Luch and Alicia a hand in leading a lineup of diverse classes and workshops. The sessions range from wine-tasting seminars to Serving It Right certification, a legal necessity in British Columbia. All of these classes take place behind real bars at Metropolitan Bartending School's facilities, equipped with the most commonly used liquor bottles, a POS training-mode system for running tabs, and an animatronic priest, rabbi, and minister.
