About us

Whichever service you need, our team is dedicated in delivering the creativity and execution required to achieve the ultimate extraordinary experience.


It was back in 2009, with a bag of clothes and a couple of grand in his account, that James upped sticks to travel across America. Utterly chewed up and spat out by the Big Apple, he gained 'baptism by fire' experience at The Blind Pig, 233 East 14th Street, New York City.

It was here that James was introduced to the classics. Mastering everything from a Manhattan to the 1934 Cosmopolitan, he brought his new passion west through Chicago to L.A. and eventually down under to Sydney, Australia. Here he gained knowledge of a more innovative, contemporary style of mixology.

Returning to the Isle of Man some years later, James recognised a thirst for different experiences; as well as a need for the highest level of customer service and an end product quality that rivals bars in any major city in the world.

With an insistence to do things his own way...Raise The Bar was born!


WHAT we are is self-explanatory.

HOW we go about delivering the service is best described by the name of our business - we raise the bar.

The most important reason behind the brand is WHY.

We do this because we love what we do, and we want you to love it too.

That's it.
