Event Details

CLASS BY ASSOCIATION offers cocktail enthusiasts an opportunity to delve deeper and refine their knowledge. Classes explore bar basics, tools and techniques as well as individual spirits, their history and use in classic and contemporary cocktails.

The Association's head mixologist, Scott Cushman and Eliah Mountjoy, hosts the 45 minute classes EVERY SATURDAY (formerly on Fridays; switching to Saturdays effective 9/22), with each class focused on different levels of expertise and topics. The early class delves deeper into topics already covered in previous classes (aka: for the true spirit nerd!); the later class is our basics class. That said, you are not required to attend the classes in any particular order.

PRIVATE GROUP CLASSES Private custom group cocktail classes can be booked or reserved in advance for groups of 12 or more any day. Private custom group cocktail class pricing varies depending on the dates, times, beverage package and size of the group.

Established in 2008 The Association, located in the historic Bank District in Downtown, LA, is a low-key, NYC-style lounge, offering classic cocktails in a warm and inviting ambiance.Shielded on the subterranean level of the Pacific Electric Lofts building, The Association's exterior is simply represented by its unique black door with a brass lion head knocker. It is dimly lit and strategically split in two sections--the bar and the lounge area--offering guests variety in space and atmosphere. The musical taste of the venue is considered eclectic, ranging from classic rock to disco, alternative, new age and loungeThe lounge is characterized by its intimate leather banquettes, mirrored light fixtures, brass ornaments and Vegas casino--style, regal carpets.

The Association's cocktail menu, conceptualized by San Francisco based consultant Kent Howard and owner Ashley Joyce, consists of an impressive list of classic concoctions such as America's first-ever created cocktail, the "Sazerac".
