What you'll do

Have you ever watched your bartender marrying strange liquids together, shaking and stirring them into a magical potion and wondered, "I wish I could learn to dazzle my friends, guests, dates and myself like this!"? You can learn how and when to make the most perfect Old Fashioned, Daiquiri or Martini as well as how to create your own delicious concoctions.

Award winning bartender and spirits consultant, Omar YeeFoon will walk you through how to build an adequate home bar, the rules of mixology and how to break them and then teach the group a few techniques and recipes, so you'll be mixing and shaking like a Deep Ellum bartender in no time.

You will arrive at Shoals to a welcome cocktail and light snacks. We will promptly start the fun. This is a very hands-on 2 hour session, but will be pretty laid back and relaxed as well. Professional bar tools and all spirits and mixers will be provided for the class.

For a decade and a half, I've been a student, practitioner and teacher of the bar industry in Dallas. Bartender by trade, I've left my touch on many notable bar programs throughout the city and beyond from managing award winning bars such as The Cedars Social, The Peoples Last Stand and Smyth, to consulting privately. In the fall of 2017, I opened Shoals Sound & Service in Deep Ellum. Shoals has since been lauded as Best New Bar 2017 and Best Classic Cocktail Bar 2018 in both D Magazine and Dallas Observer and delivers top shelf executions of some of the most popular cocktails in the world.

Book it!! Omar was super friendly and customized the lesson to the types of cocktails we all liked to drink. I had a great time! Plus Omar's bar Shoals is just a fantastic place to spend an afternoon, with a delicious menu that is very inclusive of folks with dietary restrictions. This is a must-do experience in Dallas!

We had such a great time. I brought my mom for her birthday, and we had a blast. Omar makes the experience so personal, and he even got my mother to love gin, which she said she had never liked before! You cannot pass up an experience like this!

My experience was great. Omar (and everyone else in the group) were friendly and fun. Omar really knows his subject and has “da skillz”! He helped us understand alcohols, make standards, and then customize some to our specific tastes! Great experience!
