Benjamin Newby is the modern-day monolith of mixology, triggering a considerable shift in the evolution of cocktails as well as bartenders. By fostering their ability to project personality and the right professional attitude, and closely observing their development as they carry out his increasingly complex recipes at great speeds, Benjamin Newby inspires even the un-inspirable.

I've had the pleasure of working closely with Benjamin Newby for the past five years throughout the nightlife, media, and events community and it's safe to say there's not a better nightlife professional in Chicago. Mr. Newby possesses a very rare blend of unparalleled customer service, a forward-thinking vision for new nightlife concepts, insanely sophisticated yet amazingly approachable mixology talent and a larger than life personality that always makes one feel like a VIP. He doesn't rest on the laurels of his resume – which is a hard one to beat nonetheless. Rather, he's constantly evolving his skill and expertise while growing his partnerships, clients, and exclusive network. He's a true one-of-a-kind and we at Cheeky are proud to call him one of our closest colleagues.

Benjamin Newby is the single best host I have met or done business with. He has a rare ability to make people feel special, and perfect the science of mixology and the business behind it all. He is brilliant at what he does.

I was extremely lucky to find Benjamin Newby LLC and secure them for a recent client party. I had a very specific vision and Benjamin and Travis helped transform my vision into reality. These two are exceptional with attention to detail and ensuring that every aspect of the event is meticulously planned. They were able to energize the crowd and created a very lively & spirited atmosphere. This dynamic duo entertained the crowd all evening with their warm personalities and tasty cocktails and were approached on several occasions with inquiries for future events. Benjamin Newby is the Gold Standard in a market that is often saturated by mediocre mixologists.

Thanks again for working with us last week in New York – it was so great to see you. Those drinks were fantastic as usual… Especially the Moscow Mule.
