What our customers say...
I booked the Cocktail Experience in Amsterdam through Hen Heaven for my friends hen do, which was last weekend and what can I say we had an absolute ball :)
The activity took place in a bar called the Coco Lounge, the staff that ran it were fantastic, they let us really let our hair down and have a great laugh, so much so that we went back there again in the evening were we danced on the tables to the wee small hours!!
I am so glad we booked the Cocktail Experience it was great value for money and truly made our weekend totally amazing :)
