“Raise your Spirits” is available to assist you in planning your special party or event for your family, friends, and business regardless of how big or small. Do you often ask "What liquor, beer, and wine should I serve? How much inventory do I need to have based on the amount of people attending? Does the type of venue or season of the year matter when it comes to what to serve? What cocktails should I serve based on the type of party or event? Raise your Spirits takes out the guess work and will do the planning work for you, make recommendations, create and implement a cocktail menu comprised of specialty, hand-crafted cocktails, and provide elite bartending service.” Free consultations!
Raise your Spirits, independently-owned and operated by Michael Nagy, an experienced and professional Mixologist, Bar/Cocktail Consultant, and Cocktail Party/Event Planner, offers contemporary cocktail party planning, elite bartending services, and top-shelf cocktail services for cocktail parties, happy hours, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, business functions and corporate events, dinner parties, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, retirements, fundraisers, social events, holiday parties, and special life events. You pick the location - In your home, in the community, or place of business.
What separates 'Raise your Spirits' from large bartending services and bar consultation firms is the hands-on personable approach given to your specific type of event or party, comprehensive services, and very low rates. You choose what alcohol to have on hand (full bar, if desired, working with your budget) with no different package level costs or additional fees, such as standard bartender fees, setup/breakdown costs, costs per person, and no maximum time frames. Do you want to have bar service without food or want to avoid the cost of renting a space? Do you want control over every aspect of your party or event in the privacy of your own home? Do you want the ability to choose your own bartender with a unique set of skills?
At Raise your Spirits, you will be charged either a rate per hour or flat rate per event depending on the event, number of people attending, and location. You can also have a cocktail menu designed for you to match your specific event, which will include the trendiest, coolest cocktails of the season and the best brands to use in those cocktails. If you desire, optional shopping services can be provided to you for a small fee. If you would like us to mix up any mixers, syrups, infusions, sangrias, or batched cocktails, please let us know so we can determine cost.
Raise your Spirits offers free consultations by phone, email, or web. If you desire a face-to-face meeting to discuss, that can be arranged for no cost or obligation. There is no cost to you until you agree to the services. Once you agree to the services, we just ask for a 25% deposit to get started and reserve the date and a signed independent contractor agreement outlining costs and services.

“Thank you Michael for making our Luau party a huge success! Your customized cocktail was a huge hit, and made the night even more festive. Diane was fabulous behind the bar, and you can be sure you will be hearing from us for our next party! Thanks again. Deb.”
“Michael offered to make two fruit infused punches for the clambake I recently hosted. One for adults and another for the kids in attendance. What a great addition to the party...the adult version was a citrus infusion of chardonnay, spices and soda water to give it sparkle, served in sugar and spice rimmed cups adding just the right touch. The kids version was an infusion of juices, apples and other fruity goodies making it a healthy alternative to sodas and a lot more fun than water! Although the weather was dismal these drinks added a bright note to the dreary day. Thanks, Michael. Lynne.”
