Just wanted to say that the party was a hit and my husband and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything!  Not only was the set up of the room perfect, the food was beyond my expectations, and everyone loved it.  In addition the staff was attentive and courteous, I couldn’t have asked for more.  It was the perfect ending to a great day.  And may I add that one of the best parts about having the party at The Havana Room is the fact that The Stumble Inn is adjacent to our party room.  As soon as our party was done we were able to keep the party going at The Stumble Inn.  Once more I would like to thank the Eat, Drink & Be Merry family for helping me throw the best party and for having such a professional and wonderful staff!

Thank you

Hello all!

Rian’s 30th birthday party was a complete success! The staff at The Speakeasy, especially Eric and Heather, were fantastic. Heather worked tirelessly to make sure the party ran smoothly and without a hiccup! I brought a DVD slideshow that wasn’t working on the TVs.  I was so disappointed because I spent so much time putting it together.  Heather, Eric and another staff member who was working upstairs at the Gin Mill worked with us until the problem was solved and the slideshow was running on at least one of the screens.  I was so happy because the slide show was a hit with everyone there!  I will definitely use your services again!






The party was great, thanks so much for helping… the drink deal was wonderful and almost 30 people came out to celebrate.  My friends said it was the least expensive and most fun night in Manhattan they have had in a while!  The bouncers were very friendly (very unusual to find) and the bartenders were great as well.  I would love to celebrate more birthdays with your company!


Thanks again!





Hi guys,

Thank you all for a great party experience. It was easy to plan the party with you, and the party staff there the night of our party were all very helpful, professional and accommodating to me and my guests.  The Havana Room on a mid-June night was a really enjoyable venue for our smallish group of 30 to 35, and everyone had a fun time. The food was tasty and well presented — the hot foods were kept warm and our left-overs were carefully packed up for us, per our request. The bar staff were also very helpful and carefully followed the plan we set up beforehand regarding variety of drinks and estimated budget. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Eat, Drink & Be Merry again — you guys definitely lived up to your name for our party, and helped made it a memorable one!

Dear Christine, Kate, Ali, and Niki,

2009 marks the third consecutive year my company has participated in the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, but this was the first year I was coordinating the entire event. I wanted to take the opportunity to stand out and put together a great event. When we arrived to the venue, we encountered a stuffy, crowded bar filled with race participants. It was hard to move or hear one another. Luckily, I had reserved a private room from Eat, Drink, & Be Merry! Everyone was blown away at the private space we had for our event—great food, an attentive bartender, and plenty of space to chat and hang out. I received many compliments for putting together “the best corporate challenge” yet. Thank you for everything. I look forward to working with you all next year!

All best, Victoria
