Behind the scene

Our story

At Harp & Hawthorne our mission is to empower others by teaching the understanding of mixology and cocktail culture to all who imbibe. Jump right into a hands-on learning experience with an expert mixologist in the comfort of your own home, your event, or at our studio-bar. We bring everything from the ice to the garnish, so all you have to do is sit back and soak up the knowledge while enjoying your favourite cocktails. Don’t worry, there’s no test at the end

It's simple

Choose your favourite cocktails, and we’ll be there to help you celebrate – whatever the cause – with a one-of-a-kind, premium, mixology experience.
