Los Angeles, California
By aspiring to affect as many of the five senses as possible, we make practical use of physical and chemical transformations combining social, artistic, and culinary components while always using the best spirits and ingredients when crafting each artisan cocktails.
On top of being classic speakeasy-style experts, we specilize in employing various gastronomic techniques to create avant-garde custom libations. The sky is the limit when combining elements like liquid nitrogen, nitrous, fire, smoke, and emulsifiers with special tools like centrifuges, rotovapors, blowtorches, sous vide, infusers, foams, airs, and gels. The list keeps on going. Whether the resulting cocktail features a colorful flavored block of ice, clarified fresh juice or a good ol' fashioned flambé, we feel that the real attraction is the stylish and charming bartender behind the curtain that like some the world's best disc jockeys, knows how to tend and shape the energy of the room. All of our bartenders are hand-picked, personable and attractive professionals from some of the best bars in the world.
Since every event is unique in its own way, we in like manner tailor our bartending services accordingly. Craft cocktail catering and selecting the perfect cocktail chef or mixologist is just the beginning - from a small soirée to 1000+ attendee events, we do all the necessary legwork to accommodate most any of our client's request. We do craft cocktail catering in Los Angeles, but we like to fly to other places, too.
In addition to being featured multiple times in Angeleno Magazine, LA Weekly, Vice, and Imbibe, N2 Mixology has consulted on numerous television commercial productions including Ciroc Vodka, Deleon Tequila, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, and Tanqueray Gin featuring Snoop Dogg.

We have consulted for various bars including Springtime, Rabbit Hole, and Southland in Los Angeles, The Gatsby in Austin, Texas, and Blood & Sand in St. Louis, Missouri.

We do this by providing each guest their own set of tools, spirits, mixers, and garnishes. After a crash course on the history and fundamentals we make a few classic cocktails together before having everyone rolling up their sleeves and get creative, down and dirty. Where it goes from there depends solely on your group! Most classes are held in private residences or private restaurant dining rooms since a proper after-class dinner is something we recommend and facilitate. Most of our cocktail classes are in Los Angeles, but we love flying as well.
Some of our past cocktail class clients in Los Angeles include NBC-Universal, Oracle Corp., Twitter, Google, Yelp, Facebook, Snap Chat, Virgin, Microsoft, Fandango, Yahoo, Hulu and Red Bull.
