Established in 1998, Cornucopia Cruise Line's three ships transport guests along the New York City harbor or the inland waterways along the New Jersey and Staten Island shorelines. Each ship is appointed with uplit ceilings, brass railings, hardwood dance floors, and glittering lights. During evening cruises, wait staff serve a sit-down dinner of surf-and-turf entrees as the DJ's tunes coax diners onto the dance floor. Excursions on Saturday and Sunday sate guests with buffet-style lunch or brunch, respectively. The ships range in size from the Cornucopia Majesty's vast 1,200-person capacity to the Cornucopia Destiny's intimate 250-person quarters, where guests should wear business-casual attire, eschewing gym shoes on their feet and flip-flops on their hands.
One word jumps out from A Little Bash's online profile over and over again: you, you, you. And for good reason: its party planners tailor every minute detail of an event to suit your tastes and personality. And those details— a sparse potted tree hung with spooky ornaments, orangeade and lemonade dispensed by summery glass cylinders, pastel cakes and cookies celebrating a recently christened baby—make all the difference. Clients can even learn the secrets behind such cute, personal touches that guests will remember during Haute Host workshops that cover planning, cocktail recipes, and more.
Walking into The Carlyle Club isn't quite time-travel, but it's not far off. Evoking both the look and feel of a swank, 1930s New York nightclub, the lounge and supper club combines swirling wallpaper, gilded mirrors, and lamp-lit tables with a robust entertainment calendar that encourages guests to strap on their dancing shoes and their singing-along snorkels.

BarSphere Agency can transform any room into a lively, bustling bar, complete with mixologists clad in black button-downs and silk ties. Those mixologists transport their own portable bars and barware to the client's venue, then set to work pouring international beers, wines, and spirits and classic cocktails such as the mint-muddled mojito. Whether customers choose a pre-set menu or request custom drinks, the possibilities are virtually endless, since BarSphere Agency's owner also runs Victor?s Liquor store and can draw on the shop's vast inventory.
BarSphere Agency also operates a bartender-training school in which libations and learning go hand-in-hand. During training sessions, students learn to mix, muddle, and pour a range of drinks while simultaneously keeping events running smoothly. After completing the training, students receive a certification that enhances job prospects and allows them to demand that family members address them reverentially as "Bartender."
The staff at Sugar Rim Bar might be wizards. They do, after all, transform birthday parties, weddings, and awards banquets into sophisticated blowouts, although none of them have been seen anywhere near an owl. The fully insured bartenders and cocktail servers set everything up, and once the party starts, they employ the skills learned in their extensive hospitality and safety training to keep the evening humming. Portable bars allow for versatile set-ups, and each is fronted with clouded glass and lit with colorful LED lights to evoke the feeling of a hip nightclub. Behind the bars, deft hands use a full kit of professional tools to pour wine and mix exotic cocktails. The hand-crafted drinks are also served on trays, along with platters of hors d'oeuvres. Should clients wish to pick up some of the experts' expertise, they can browse Sugar Rim Bar's video tutorials or enroll in a mixology or wine-tasting course.
