    My wife and I have utilized Ektoras' services for about ten years. We met him at Aureole one evening while waiting for friends to arrive. We don't entertain without Ektoras and associates at ASM. As a matter of fact, some of the regulars inquire about his participation and the latest cocktail...

    Having hired Art & Spirit Mixology to make our East Hampton summer parties stand out from the crowd, we – and our guests – were thrilled by the results: Ektoras puts great passion, creativity & style into his one-of-a-kind cocktails. These are not ‘drinks’ but libations! We are already working together on our Winter Wonderland party, for which he is creating two unique new magic potions – one, excitingly, to be named in honour of the hostess. A true artist.

    This is a truly inspired NYC combo- handsome mixologist (aka: bartender), exotic, seasonal cocktails and great service- all presented with poise and flair. I've used Art and Spirit Mixology for a number of gallery openings over the last year in both NYC and upstate. A perfect choice for any design, fashion or foodie driven event. Always friendly, entertaining and fun, Ektoras will win you and your guests over with his tasteful, but unique blends. This is the way to go if you want to make a memorable affair for your friends, family or co-workers. I highly recommend Art and Spirit Mixology.
