why we do what we do


We aren’t here to simply pour your vodka sodas and call it a day.  To us, that’s boring.
(Although, we will of course pour you a vodka soda, if you ask)

We channel our energy into fostering creative and engaging ideas to make your event unique.

We genuinely enjoy that process.

We keep things simple and approachable.
We provide you over-the-top hospitality, because we like to.

We are host to the host, and always anticipate your needs.

Whether we’re serving you a drink or empowering you to create your own,
seeing a smile on your face brings a smile to ours.

our mission:
to promote genuine hospitality through interactive cocktail experiences

i there!  I’m Ross, one of several faces that make up our small but mighty team.  Thanks for stopping by.
 
After climbing the corporate ladder for a bit, I decided it wasn’t for me.  Too much bureaucracy, and not enough hospitality.  So I chose to say goodbye to a salary, and jumped into bartending because of the genuine satisfaction I get from expressing creativity and serving others.  I immediately fell in love with the industry, and haven’t looked back since.
 
Years later, I’ve converted into a self-proclaimed cocktail nerd and hospitality extraordinaire.  I’m a member of the Chicago chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild, a BarSmarts Graduate, have earned Spirits Level 2 Certification from the globally-recognized Wine & Spirit Education Trust, and more!
 
I am still very much a continuous student of the industry.  I expand my knowledge in many ways, but none more important than by collaborating with people like you.  Whether you’re a fellow member of “the industry,” a connoisseur of cocktails, or a consumer of cocktails, I want to learn from and with you.
 
So whoever you may be, I look forward to crafting you a cocktail, sharing some knowledge, or having a chat over a drink sometime soon.
 
Cheers!
