Spirits Classes

Spirits tastings for all levels of connoisseur.


Our Spirits classes offer courses for all levels. We have classes for connoisseurs, and others for beginners who are simply curious to learn more. Led by our team of in-house spirits experts. You will walk away with both a pronounced appreciation for Whiskey, Tequila, Mezcal, Rum, Brandy, and Wine and a light skip in your step after one of these fun and dynamic courses.

All classes are held upstairs in our private tasting room. The space has been designed specifically for these classes and all details have been considered. A long 16’ black walnut tasting table, wireless microphone, projection screen, sound-proof curtains and a separate PA system. Tastings start on time, so please arrive early to avoid any interruption.

Classes are also available for private parties of any size. To inquire about booking a class for your group, contact Evelina at 212.725.3860 or email Evelina@TheFlatironRoom.com.
