Old Town Cocktail Lounge King’s Ransom Reopens With Local Cocktail Classes

King’s Ransom — an Old Town cocktail lounge in a spot many locals may remember as the speakeasy PX — had the distinct misfortune of opening in mid-February, scarcely a month before a global pandemic would shut down nearly every business in Alexandria.

The restaurant at 728 King Street is back, however, and has announced a series of new social distancing-friendly activities, including a series of cocktail classes.

“We’ve launched a series of unique classes that take place every Tuesday night,” the restaurant said in an email. “There are two seatings of 10 people each. Guests get to chat with Jon Schott and Alex Taylor (cocktail gurus) in addition to a representative from the featured spirt. The classes include four unique cocktail courses with food pairings.”

The next class is on Tuesday, July 28, and will feature cocktails made only with local ingredients and Catoctin Creek, a brewing company from Purcellville, Virginia.

“Join King’s Ransom and Catoctin Creek for a special evening as we welcome back our neighbors,” King’s Ransom said. “Guests will enjoy 4 courses paired with cocktails using local ingredients and executed with molecular mixology. Catoctin Creek Spirit Specialists will share the distillery’s history including a chance to sample their #InThisTogether Infinity Barrel Rye.”

Tickets are $75 per person. Details on the cocktails, and tickets, are available online.
