Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
Santa loves it when you leave a glass of milk out for him beside the Christmas tree.
But truth be told, he’d rather you left him out a French Martini (dapper old grandpa that he is).
And who can blame him? It really is the very best cocktail. Unless, of course, you’re going to argue that mojito rules?
Settle the argument with today’s Handpicked Deal on a cocktail masterclass at Arta, where you’ll get to make both drinks. Needless to say, this would also make a fun Christmas gift for anyone who loves to sip a creative mixer or three.
Shaken, not stirred
This Handpicked Deal is for a cocktail masterclass for one, two or four people. On arrival, guests will be served a sweet and zingy lemon sherbet shot to put them into the swing of things.
Next, Arta’s resident bar maestro will lead them through the process of making two classic concoctions – a French Martini and a Mojito. Nibbles will be served as well.
This masterclass is taking place on a choice of two dates – 18th January or 22nd February 2020 – both at 5pm.
Jewel of a venue in the Merchant City
Based on Albion Street, Arta is a truly fancy pants space for brushing up on your cocktail making skills.
Designed to look like an antique Spanish hacienda, the main bar area has enormous standing candelabras and staircases worthy of a castle. It’s all very grand.
Afterwards, if you’d like to stay on for a bite to eat, then you could enjoy Mediterranean-style cuisine in the restaurant area, including tapas.
This 5pm customer adored their recent visit to Arta:
‘What a find. This was our first time at Arta and we couldn’t believe how great the whole experience was. The setting, tucked away in Merchant City, is not what you’re expecting – super Med vibe amidst an amazing cavern of a place! The food was stunning – absolutely everything was delicious – and the service was outstanding. It was a family dinner to celebrate a birthday and we honestly couldn’t have asked for more in terms of being a unique and super special evening. Definitely returning and recommending to everyone we know.’ 5/5
Christmas gift for cocktail lovers
Know anyone who loves to get the cocktail shaker out?
