The Spare Room Off-site Cocktail Services:: the Details

-First and foremost: the bartenders come prepared with the freshest produce, handpicked spirits and pressed juices to create a personalized cocktail experience. Basically it's like Willy Wonka and Martha Stewart just arrived at your party.

-No party is too large or too small. They have packages starting at $30 per person (hey that's less than going out on Sunset Blvd) and now can service larger events from 500-1000.

-They DESIGN + CURATE a custom bar for your event. I'm getting chills just thinking about it. Imagine all the possibilities.

-For an add-on you can have a 20-bottle curated back bar. Um, yes please. 10 points to those of you who know what a fernet branca is.

-Can we talk seasons? The Spare Room Seasonal Cocktail Menu is off the hook. If you don't know what a Thanks Grandma! is then you need to put down that crappy pumpkin spice latte and head over to the Roosevelt for one STAT. It's a delicious concoction of Jamaican rum, hazelnut and allspice liqueurs, cinnamon spiced pumpkin, cream and nutmeg. While you're at it, take a picture and send it to grandma letting her know you had one in her honor.

-Another festive option: the punch. It doesn't get any better than a one of a kind punch created just for your blowout.

Now get to it and reserve your event date. Added bonus: Katy Connors, the Event Coordinator is the best. She'll have your festivity being the talk of the town guaranteed!
