Hi Ladies,
I just want to tell you the party at the Havana Room was a huge success.  Everyone had a great time.  You did an amazing job and Meghan was really on top of her game.  I’ll definitely be recommending you to anyone planning a party.
Thanks for everything,

Hey guys,I just wanted to get back to you and let you know that we had such a great time at our party. From start to finish it was a blast.  Working with you guys might have been the simplest part of planning the entire party and usually finding a place is the hardest part.  I truly look forward to having another reason to have a party and call you guys to book it! Thanks again for everything and making this the easiest and funnest event i’ve ever planned.  Everyone truly enjoyed the night and the atmosphere of the city.  Again looking forward to next time! Melissa ReedSpeakeasy Room at the Gin Mill NYC 

The party was a huge success. Everyone felt comfortable in the room. The staff was very genuine, helpful and pleasant to all those who came. The atmosphere was just what I was looking for. I have no complaints to offer.  I look forward to throwing another party there in the not so distant future. 
Thank you again.

Office Party at The Balcony

November 30, 2007

Party was a huge success.  75 co-workers. The 1 bartender had no problem handling the crowd.  Beer pong tables were a hit.  We will be back.  Love dealing with you guys. It’s easy! Thanks again. Joe D. Balcony Party Room NYC at Off the Wagon 

I recently threw a surprise party for my fiancé at Jake’s Dilemma with the help of the staff at EDBM. I am not that familiar with New York City bars, and found the staff at EDBM to be most helpful and efficient in providing me with ample information to make my bar selection for the party, as well as what type of party to host that would work best for our number of guests. I selected a main bar party at Jake’s and had everything confirmed with the staff at EDBM and Jake’s within 24 hours of contacting them. The process was extremely easy, and I had a great open bar deal for my guests. I enjoyed the fact that guests could pay at the door themselves and I would not have to go through the hassle of collecting money myself. My guests were extremely appreciative and excited as well. The night of the party we arrived at Jake’s and were given a warm welcome at the door. The bar was even better then our expectations, and it was pleasantly crowded without being too crammed. Our party settled in at a booth, and within minutes a waitress was there to take our drink orders. The waitress continued to bring our drinks and take orders throughout the entire night, even as the bar filled up. I can’t rave enough about how wonderful the service was at both EDBM and Jake’s. EDBM even contacted me within a week of the event to make sure that we enjoyed our time, and offered us a deal at another bar that they work with. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, and have already been spreading the word to everyone I know.Thank you very much, and I look forward to working with you again!Katie LarsenJake’s Dilemma Main Bar Party Room NYC 

Thanks to the helpful and friendly staff at Eat, Drink, & Be Merry.  My friend’s surprise birthday party was fantastic. The Speakeasy Room at the Gin Mill was the perfect location for the event, and I only noticed it because of Niki. Also, the staff was understanding and willing to work within my financial constraints so I could still throw a great party for my special friend, but not break the bank. I was also impressed by the attentiveness of the staff at the Gin Mill. The bartender was sociable with the guests and the manager smoothly handled the set-up and clean-up, the presentation of the birthday cake, and our special photo slideshow. This is the first time where I planned a party, yet was still able to enjoy the party myself. Everyone had an incredible time, especially the birthday boy. Thank you!-Jonathan T.Speakeasy Room at the Gin Mill NYC

We had a lovely time at the Havana Room and ate leftovers for the rest of the week. All our guests were impressed and surprised. Most of them live and/or work in Manhattan and didn’t know how a Jersey girl found this great space in NYC without any help from them. Simply put, you had a great website and immediate attention and response time which is why I trusted you even though I did not see the room nor taste the food before booking. Did I take a chance? Yes. Was I disappointed? No. Will I do it again? You Bet! Thanks again for making my husband’s 50th birthday a special event and for putting up with us when our guests were in no rush to leave.

Hello to all:
My party was a BLAST! The staff at Jake’s Dilemma could not have been more gracious to me and my guests. Jonah was an excellent manager, and although he was ‘swamped’ with post Marathon revelers he could not do enough to accommodate my every wish.  If the opportunity arises again, I will be sure to you Eat, Drink & Be Merry again.
Thank you for an incredible finish to my already incredible day.

I wanted to thank you for helping me plan a great party. The room at the Gin Mill was perfect and the bartenders were fabulous. They even kept the bar open for cash after the open bar was finished. It was a great time had by all and I would definitely plan a party there again.
Thank you again
