Snake Oil’s Holiday Party at JULEP


Snake Oil Cocktail Company had a lot to celebrate this year and plenty to look forward to in 2020. A company holiday party was the perfect way to recognize all the achievements of our Snake Oil team as well as reveal one of San Diego’s newest Event Venues – JULEP venue. After 10 years in the San Diego events industry we have gotten to know some of the best vendors and collaborated to transform this JULEP Main Hall into a cozy cabin getaway for our well-deserved Snake Oil Staycation.

PEP’s decor expertise had us feeling like we were at a cabin getaway! Lanterns and indoor marquee lighting helped to bring some warm lighting into the space and added to the cozy holiday ambiance. Intimate lounge areas throughout the hall made the team feel at home as we got to sip + sip together in style.

Tim Hardy Photography was onsite capturing all of the celebrating and memory making throughout the night. With so many spaces buzzing with activity indoor and outdoors we were so glad he was there to photograph so we could reminisce about every little moment.

It was only fitting that we served some of our favorite Snake Oil Signature Cocktails for this event. We served our famous London Calling, Preservation Society and the Clasico. We of course played into the holiday theme, using holiday themed garnishes and cocktail names like ‘Jingle Juice’ and ‘Nightmare before XMas’. These cocktails paired perfectly with the delicious charcuterie spread provided by our friends at Toast Catering.

At Snake Oil, we march to the beat of our own drum but we can’t deny our love for some bumpin’ beats and busting a few moves out on the dance floor.  DJ Gregg Murphy and his beats got the party started. Brickhouse Dance Productions also surprised our team with a lively flash mob and kept the people movin’ all night long!

Team members were kickin’ back and enjoying some games of cornhole out in the JULEP courtyard. After a few hours of fun we hosted the ULTIMATE Cocktail Competition, giving our bartenders the challenge of competing against their coworkers (and some of the best bartenders in all of San Diego County… but we’re biased of course). Even some of our office team joined in on the fun! Saul Paniagua, Director of Sales at Snake Oil, showed us he’s still got it and showcased his flair bartending skills. Lindsey Chronert, Director of Marketing at Snake Oil, also gave our staff a run for their money and poured us a cocktail that left guests stunned and satisfied! 

This was one of the best events in Snake Oil history and we were so happy to host this event at our latest Snake Oil exclusive venue, JULEP. It was a night of fun and celebrating all the hard work the team had accomplished throughout the year and a toast to all the excitement to come in the new year!
