Scott is super personable and very kind! I had a blast during the class/experience. I learned so much about the art, skill and precision behind making craft cocktails! The venue too was an absolute gem. I had never heard of Midnight Cowboy before, and getting a chance to see its beautiful interior outside of its regular operations was a treat in itself.
