10 Dollar Shake was founded in 2010. A cocktail catering company, we deliver a boutique and high-end imbibing experience via a pop-up bar, a handful of passionate, talented bartenders and a unique location such as a country home, marquee, west end office or art gallery. In October 2012 we opened our first bar/restaurant, The Tippling House.
Located in the cultural district of Aberdeen, The Tippling House is a subterranean late-night tavern serving boutique spirits, hand-crafted cocktails, fine Scottish ales & inspired casual dining.
