About

Straight talking journalism for the serious bartender

Since 1997, CLASS magazine has built a reputation as the most influential UK bar industry magazine. After a short absence, CLASS returned in Autumn 2016 with a new design and fresh approach to trade journalism, brought to you by the team behind Drinks International, the founders of The World’s 50 Best Bars. Published quarterly, CLASS engages with the UK bartender with straight-talking, practical and inspiring articles. Targeting the UK’s craft bar scene, CLASS is the essential read for key influencers and buyers, namely bartenders, bar managers and bar owners. 

Each issue showcases smart and thoughtful independent writing alongside contemporary, artistic design. Our columns and features will be written by specialist drinks writers, influential bartenders and out-of-industry leaders offering new viewpoints, forward-thinking advice and analysis of the modern-day bar business.

CLASS magazine is distributed to the key purchasing decision-makers in the UK bar industry. Our strict terms of control ensure our circulation reaches the most influential and leading bar owners, bar managers and serious bartenders across the country.
