Amazing fun. Based at ChaChabuchi the model Lewis was brilliant. Would deffo recommend xx
The overall booking was fab. We were sat at the front, straight away a bottle of Prosecco was brought to us and another once we had done with the first! However, a lady unsure why got us kicked out which was uncalled for. The bouncer was then rude and didn’t want to hear what I said, which then conseqented to us being on pub watch and banned from every pub in Newcastle for no reason which obviously ruined the night
We had a great time doing something we have never done before. Dominic was a brilliant guide and made sure we had so much fun
The cocktail making class was amazing. It was truely enjoyed by everyone and the bartender made sure to include everyone and even amended the cocktails we were making to cater to our tastes. It was an excellent night that we would all book to do again.
