THE CRAFT COCKTAIL
CLUB

Classy Cocktails for Regular People. 

A community for people who love cocktails. Join for great recipes, Q&A’s, monthly contests, and a positive place to share your drink creations. This is a positive community all about experimentation, collaboration and enjoying great cocktails.

THE CRAFT BARTENDER COMMUNITY

Solidarity & Support for bartenders and bar professionals.

Here you’ll find conversations about surviving the bar career, being a better bartender, and advanced mixology techniques. A positive place for support & solidarity with others working to make a great career behind the bar.

We’re a husband-wife team of cocktail nerds who started A Bar Above way back in 2013, dreaming of a website that would help make craft bar education accessible to everyone.

What started as a blog and YouTube channel quickly grew to include a podcast, online courses, and our very own custom line of barware.

All of the tools and equipment you see on this site are custom-designed or hand-selected by us personally to be the best possible tools for the craft bartender or home mixologist. We hope you love them as much as we do!
