Well I have to admit when I got invited to sample some of Leeds cocktails finest it was pretty hard to resist! Mojo claims to ‘offer an alternative night school’ and what better way to get back to class than with the promise of 2-3 hours in cocktail heaven.
Mojo offers classes for groups of 10 or more at the cost of £25 a head, where believe me you’ll be able to indulge in a more exciting range of drinks to sup than you know what to do with!
The bar opened up 15 years ago and can be found on the 2nd floor. Decked out with authentic dark wood and funky leather seats it creates a cool, pretty – retro, laid back vibe.
Our main man Joe entertained us with some interesting stories and facts about the bar and the masterclass before he set us to work on our first taste tests! From pink Bellini to French Martini, rum punch, Cosmos and more, I can honestly say there’s not a lot we didn’t try!
The great thing about this class is that you can really get involved. It includes cocktail making, competitions, interesting facts and witty ancedotes. I couldn’t believe it when the time had passed…one cocktail to many perhaps! Hic!
All in all a fantastic alternative to the usual night out or corporate function and a night I’ll definitely be organising with pals soon. The service was fantastic and the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable. Just make sure you book a taxi home afterwards!
Thanks Mojo, I’ll be back!
