Best Way to Learn Your Liquor Lessons

Classes at The Mode Lounge and Mai Thai

Staff Pick

Many of us unofficially enrolled in booze class in college, but we never took alcohol academics as seriously as Mai Thai and The Mode Lounge. Seasoned bartenders from both went to New Orleans for specialized training and upon their return home, recently launched a lineup of liquor-related educational experiences for their customers. Mai Thai's Sunday School is a weekly event that costs $25 a person and includes a flight of booze, food pairings and a liquor lesson. The Mode's classes are a little spendier--$60 a person for high-end booze and snacks--but the bar's first whiskey class sold out so quickly that they hosted a second a week later. themodelounge.com, maithaigroup.com
