Hands-on Team Building Events
It seems like finding unique team building activities in Downtown Vancouver for a small group is like finding a needle in a haystack. Not every group company event needs to be about learning to paint or make pastries. For groups less than 20 people, why not treat them to a seminar on how to mix some drinks?
Get your coworkers together and learn to bartend as a fun team building event. Knowing how to build a few new cocktails is a great way spend an afternoon, and with the school being just a stone’s throw from some of Vancouver’s best cocktail bars… the party doesn’t need to end when your group is done with practicing some new drinks. Keep the party going with a stroll through Gastown for some happy hour beverages at any of the pubs just down the street.
Bartending isn’t an easy job, but it can be a fun one. At Fine Art Bartending, we have been teaching bartenders in Vancouver for more than 35 years now. During that time we have identified a few key points that everyone can appreciate. For corporate groups, we have created a straightforward and streamlined 2 to 2.5 hour program.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We took a team of 13 colleagues to a Friday afternoon cocktail making class. Chris was a brilliant teacher and host. We made 12 cocktails in 3 hours, and learnt some great tips and tricks about cocktail making. We’ll definitely recommend Chris and Fine Art Bartending School to other teams in work. – Alex M. from Hootsuite
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ These guys went the extra mile to set up a custom course as a corporate team building event. They are engaging and entertaining instructors and they peppered the course with helpful tips, tricks, and jokes! – Wesley C. from Tasktop
What Happens in These Private Events?
Over the course of a couple hours we will step your team through
- Pouring an ounce… how much liquor do you actually get in that shot
- Four different methods of mixing a cocktail
- Tips on some new cocktails to try out, and variations on some old classics
- Tasters of some not so common, yet familiar and flavourful cocktails to watch for when out in Vancouver
Who Have You Had For Corporate Groups?
We have had inquiries from many groups over the last few years. No, we can not do groups of 50 or 100. We don’t have a lot of space, but we can neatly fit groups of 6 to 24 people. The more the merrier.
For our most recent groups from Toronto Dominion, Intracorp, Tasktop, Cisco, and Scotia Wealth have had a blast during this team building event. Hootsuite and Symmetry Lighting came in for a couple hours for some fun cocktail making too. Teams from Amazon and law firms nearby have also gotten out of the office for a few hours for something different to do. Come learn some of those cocktail basics that everyone can have fun with!
When Can I Book A Time For My Team?
For Team Building Events Monday to Thursday
We typically have our regular Day classes operating from 11-3PM and our Night classes running from 6-10PM from Monday to Thursday. Team building events slot nicely into the 3:30-5:30PM time slot, neatly between that Day and Night Class. It also gives a bit of time to catch the tail end of happy hour!
For Team Building Events on Fridays
Friday is our only class-free day. This means whatever 2 to 2.5 hour time slot works for you will also work for us. Again, round up your coworkers and confirm how many might be interested in doing something like a fun bartending class as a team event.

How Much Does it Cost
Teaching individuals on how to be bartenders is our primary motivation. Having fun groups of people come in for a short and entertaining seminars adds something different to the day-to-day educational grind. As a result we have priced these private seminars as follows.
2020 Pricing for Private Corporate Events
