MEMBERS of the local ladies-only business network ‘Girl Tribe Gang’ were the first to put their mixology skills to the test when The Ticket Office launched their cocktail masterclasses earlier this month.

With expert guidance from barman Ian De Rijk, the group wasted no time in concocting their own favourites from the bar’s range of innovative cocktails, including Pornstar Martinis, Mojitos and Tiki Sauce, a new cocktail due to be introduced in the Spring.

Since opening at Ilkley’s historic railway station complex in December 2017, the stylish, over 21s cocktail venue is fast developing a reputation as upscale alternative to a night out in Leeds.

Ticket Office General Manager Lawrence Doyle expects the masterclasses to prove popular with groups looking for an exclusive experience.

“Through our masterclasses, we encourage couples and small groups to discover the ingredients, inspiration and showmanship behind some of our most popular and innovative cocktails,” said Lawrence.

Alongside its cocktail menu, The Ticket Office stocks a range of premium wines, champagnes, spirits and craft beers, as well as quality coffees and loose leaf teas. The bar, which is also available for private hire, plans to open a heated outdoor terrace and launch a food menu in the spring.
