Experiencing the Art of Agave
After several noches of sharing, pondering and rambling, we decided to take a leap of faith together. We found common ground in our admiration of well crafted creations and the "artistas" behind them - creations that deliver memorable and meaningful experiences.
Arte Agave was thus born of our mutual passion and appreciation of agave spirits + cuisine + the arts all wrapped in the values that define its very spirit: Respeto, Comunidad, Celebración, Innovación, y Pasión.

Founder + Director
Founder, Business Development
Walter Easterbrook, Founder and CEO of the Bowery Collective, started his career in hospitality in NYC over 15 years ago, and he knows the business from top to bottom. Having started out bartending in a multitude of restaurants and high volume corporate establishments, Walt’s quick ascent soon led him to opening and managing bars and to planning and launching a wide array of selective events both in the US and abroad.
Walt first discovered his passion for the hospitality industry in college. Shortly after graduation, he put his experience to the test in New York City, where he quickly built an impressive resume and went on to help open the Lobby Bar at The Bowery Hotel.
Through his various experiences, Walt has honed his skills, embraced the world of "mixology” and perfected his craft of using new liquors and fresh ingredients to create signature cocktails.
These days, you’ll find Walt reveling in the details and expertise it takes to craft meaningful moments for his guests – from creating signature cocktails, to shaping the space and guiding the service to ultimately deliver just the right experience.
