Helmed by brothers Jesse and Eric Jacobs, J.Bespoke was conceived to fill an untapped niche – a refined venue that plays athletic events in an upscale, speakeasy setting. With just 50 seats and attentive, personalized service, the lounge offers a luxe counterpoint to the city’s mainstream sports bars.

Very cool and unique atmosphere - in a speakeasy! Eric led our class, and was so knowledgeable about the drinks and the ingredients, and passionate about the whole process. We were a group of 30 coworkers, and it was just hte right mix of structured time making drinks and social time. Also--the drinks themselves were outstanding - super fresh ingredients, and forced me to try 2 drinks that I would not have otherwise ever picked, and they tasted fantastic. I would highly recommend this mixology class for an after-work bonding event or other team event.

$150 usd per person to only create 2 drinks, that’s to lame and expensive. Besides we ordered three 4 piece canapés orders for $120 usd and only received a small order of guacamole and chips. That’s the most expensive guac I’ve ever eaten.

Eric was a fantastic teacher! He gave us the rundown of his bar, walked us through each step, and motivated us to experiment more at home. I wasn’t expecting to keep all of the equipment we used which was an absolute plus. I surprised my bf with this class for his birthday and he loved it. I highly recommend!

Highly recommend J Bespoke to anyone searching for a cocktail-making class. Eric was incredibly responsive leading up to the class with follow-up, confirmations, and tracking for our kits. Jesse led our class and he was fantastic!

Jessica Sico Aug 2022

The cocktail class at J. Bespoke was nothing less than amazing! The venue classy, intimate overall perfect for our bachelorette party. The owners were attentive to all of our needs (including setting up a station of discreet mocktails for one of our guests who hadn’t told anyone she was pregnant yet). They allowed us to come in early and put up a few decorations to really personalize the space.

Jesse was our teacher and he was phenomenal! He was personable and very articulate. Jesse also helped us make the best cocktails we’ve ever made (spicy paloma, cucumber margarita, elderflower sour). They were delicious! We were also completely surprised that all of the bar tools we were using to make the drinks we were able to keep (along with recipes) so now we can make all of these delicious drinks at home! I would book this class for another private event in a heartbeat.

Thank you, Eric & Jesse!
