Private Event Package Options
Although we custom tailor all aspects of your event, some people are more comfortable with some standard packages, here are some examples of what we have made available in the past:

Watch out for the Trendsetter
Only our staff can capture what is hot and trendy at the moment and give you exactly what everyone is clamoring for. We select trendy wines that are taking the country by storm and make you the envy of your party.
Bubbles that make you feel good
Rarely does anything express “lets celebrate” quite like an exquisite bottle of bubbly! Whether you are eyeing rare Champagne or the everyday sparkling wine, we assist in ringing in the New Year, toasting a new marriage, honoring an anniversary, or celebrating life’s events and special moments! We do bubbles and we do them right! There are plenty of options and just as many price points in the Champagne and sparkling wine world. Let us get you started with some solid sparkling selections running the array from the under $9 category to the over $100 price point.
The Island Experience
When you speak of Rum, you speak of savory flavor from which the spirit originates. From Barbados, Jamaica, Cuba, Latin America, Guyana to RHUM AGRICOLE, we believe that you have to search to find the best rums in the world. Every island has its own flair, every country has its own style, and every distillery has its own flavor. Rum started life as a by-product of sugar. It’s hardly surprising that a spirit made from sugar cane is sweet, but rum is more than just a sugary drink. Its aromas suggest tropical fruits and banana, there’s spice and vanilla from the oak, and in pot still and extra-aged examples, a rich, dark sultry power that will rock your event!
Excite the mixologist in you and learn how to create your own cocktail concoctions with local celebrity Mixologists and bartenders from the DC and NYC hot spots. We can teach you the basics, or jump to the always fun flipping and juggling flare bartending tricks. Whether it’s an innovative cocktail creation like a juniper-infused libation, a peach puree and fresh lemon infused vodka served up with a burnt orange peel or a simple Old Fashioned, you will learn how to put a new twist on mouth-watering concoctions.
Shaken, not stirred
Indulge your senses and impress your guests with an elegant and luscious pairing of classic martinis or the new wave of Chocolate Martinis with Chocolate Desserts (perfect with our Cupcake extravaganza). This has been the perfect event for a ladies night or for a romantic couples evenings on all types of occasions on a consistent basis for a very simple reason… it’s delicious!
Single Malt or Blended Scotch Sipper
Enjoy a stress-free and elegant evening sipping on some of the world’s finest blended or single malt scotches. These can be paired with gourmet small bites or fine cigars. Our experts have experience in hand selecting the finest scotches and finest hand rolled cigars; yes we have an expert for everything.

One Tequila–Two Tequila
Tequila’s loud, fun-loving, party image is a great start. However, when the party’s over, tequila gets blamed for the worst hangovers, not the case! The category continually proves the myths to be just that, myths. The message is finally getting through: tequila deserves to be sipped and savored, with a host of brands now enthralling connoisseurs as readily as enticing newcomers. Blanco, Reposado, Anejo, Mezcal or Soto, allow us to open your eyes and taste buds to the world of tequila! You will learn about complexities and intricacies of making high-quality tequila. Join us as we teach you about the history of remarkable tequilas from around the world.
