Master Class


Hippo Co Master Class offers you and ten of your friends / colleagues the rare opportunity to get behind one of Australia’s leading cocktail bars and mix drinks!

It’s all about having a good time, mixing up a couple of drinks from the Hippo Co menu, and with the guidance from our head bartender, creating your very own cocktail using the ingredients of your choice!*

By the end of a two hour Master Class you will have the skills to throw the cocktail party of the century straight out of your kit.

You will learn about the craft of the cocktail, mixing techniques and principles behind combining ingredients and flavours in your mixing glass!

We can tailor the master class based on your interests to include specific information on whiskey, bourbon, tequila, beer, wine or bar room counselling (maybe not counselling).

Please remember you will be consuming alcohol at Master Class, so leave your car at home and catch a cab, walk or levitate your way to the bar. Don’t drink and drive!

Hippo Cocktails


Creating amazing cocktails has been at the heart of what we do here at Hippo Co for the past 15 years.

Every day before service we squeeze fresh citrus juice and you will see our bartenders squeeze fresh apple juice right in front of you, it takes a little longer but it just tastes better than anything you can buy off the shelf!

Have a talk to our bartenders, they can help you decide what you might enjoy from our cocktail list.

We mix an extensive range of classic cocktails that are not on our list and are more than happy spending time working out exactly what you feel like drinking.

Unfortunately we are not able to mix drinks like appeltini’s, lychee martini’s, chocolatini’s, mud slides.

They are not part of what we do well, and we only want to serve you the best drinks we can possibly produce.

We hope you enjoy your time with us!


Please fill out the booking/enquiry form below and we will get back to you ASAP.
We would love to accommodate your group however we do not take bookings for groups smaller than 10 people.
