High Bar’s beloved Jack Schramm returns with another interactive cocktail show!
Each episode of Guest Host features a new guest host, selected from among the best bartenders and cocktail creators in the country. Each host guides the audience in making three cocktails: their signature, one classic, and one surprise.
Part master class and part interview show, Guest Shift is a show about cocktail making – but it's also a show about the people behind the bar, their experiences, and their creative processes.
Meet Your Host

If you prefer to just watch, we offer Spectator tickets at a reduced price. Spectators don’t get ingredient kits or drink recipes, and don’t participate in making the cocktails featured on the show... but you will learn some great techniques!
