Hey Christine, Kate, Niki, and Cortney!

The party was fantastic, the bartenders were great, the planning of the event was effortless thanks to you guys and i’ll highly recommend you for anyone that asks me for birthday ideas!

My only regret was not being able to endure 3 hours of open bar thanks to my friends buying me too many shots of Jameson.

Thanks again!



The staff was amazing!

Thank you for making my birthday party go smoothly and be the talk of all my friends! Everyone had a great time.

I felt like the process was easier than I thought, although I would have likes

To know options in music or food. I wasn’t too clear on that, other than that the staff was more than helpful and GD was great!  Even asked about a friend who wasn’t feeling well. I’m defintely going to pass the word and plan my next event with you guys! Thanks!

Thanks so much!! I had a great time the bartenders were awesome!! My fiance’ actually extended the open bar an extra hour because everyone was having so much fun!! We will be planning another party with you again for sure!!! You made my bday and our engagement one amazing party!!! Thanks so much!!

Reunion in The Oak Cellar

January 21, 2010

Had a great time! The place was great and everything went as smooth as possible. Everyone at the bar could not have been more helpful. My guests were very impressed and they all had a great time.

I would definitely recommend you to my friends!

I just want to thank you for everything! The party was flawless (as was my outfit lol!) and the bartender couldn’t have been nicer! This is the first of many future parties I will throw with your company! Thank you so much for everything!



I wanted to thank you and your team for setting up a great party for my friend at The Speakeasy room. Everyone had a great time and Eric and his staff were more than accommodating and very nice. Everyone kept saying to me how nice the room was and how great it was to have this private space.



I had a great time for my 21st birthday at Jake’s Dilemma. Everyone was very helpful in the planning process and made sure I was going to have a good time from the moment I spoke to them, til the time I left the bar!

The Party was great! Eric was a HUGE help — provided great customer service. He always made sure my guests and I were 100% accomodated — he even went out and got a cake/candles because he insisted the birthday boy needed to blow out his 30 candles!

Everything from planning to execution was great.

Thanks for checking in,


Good Morning,

The party went well, the turnout was good, and we all had an awesome time,

We would definitely do a party like this again, its very convenient, I referred a lot of friend to you guys, so hopefully they have a birthday party with you guys too. I am already thinking about having my Halloween party in another one of your rooms! ill be in touch!

Thanks again, have a good weekend.

Hello ladies!!

I have been meaning to email you to tell you what a great night we had on Friday at Jake’s Dilema for John’s 40th!!!  Everything from the staff to the food and drinks was perfect!  John was very surprised too.  I couldn’t have asked for an easier party to plan than this was.

Thanks again for all of your help!!!  You were all so helpful and great to deal with .



Dear Eat, Drink and Be Merry,

I wanted to write to say thank you for all your help planning my husband’s surprise 30th birthday bash at the Speakeasy on Saturday, January 9th. My husband was so surprised and loved everything about the room! Him and his friends can’t stop talking about how great a night it was. The texas hold’em table and the beer pong table were a hit! Thanks again for all your help planning the party. It definitely couldn’t have turned out so well without all of your professionalism in the party planning area.



Fundraiser in The Speakeasy

January 13, 2010


I meant to email you on Monday… sorry for the delay!  The event was truly a success and a great time was had by all.  We raised over $1200 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  I hope to do an event with you in the future.

Also, Eric was amaaaaazing!  He was very professional and managed the event with enthusiasm and a positive attitude.  I really appreciate it!

Thanks again,



Our NYE party at the Speakeasy room was a huge success. All the guests came up to me throughout the night constantly thanking me for putting such a great event together and proclaiming it was the best NYE of their lives. This is a pretty big feat!

I was pleasantly surprised with the smooth process to book the event. Kate was fantastic to work with and answered all my questions in the weeks leading up to the event. I truly felt like I was in good hands.

Night of, the bartenders Eric and Audrey were awesome. All my guests loved them and tons of people took pictures with them!

Logistically, the room was laid out perfectly. The two tables in the corners were utilized as were the chairs at the bar. The space fit 100 comfortably, though I do believe 125 would have been excessive. Eric was great with adjusting the temperature and turning off the fireplace as the room filled with guests.

The drinks were great, I heart code blue and had NO HANGOVER on New Year’s Day!

The food unfortunately was a miss. We didn’t see the items that we reviewed prior to the event (no chicken fingers) and the items first put out were not what we thought (meatballs, meat on a stick?). Eventually I saw mozzarella sticks (I was waiting for those). I was sad to see all the food was taken away before 11:30pm, I was under the impression the food would constantly be replenished throughout the night. Luckily, people don’t come for the food and I don’t think this distracted from the positive party experience at all though it was disappointing.

The DJ was OK, his taste was not to our liking so we put on our ipod for a bit. In hindsight, I would have created more mixes on my ipod and have been better prepared. I did not plan to use it. Luckily, the process to plug in the ipod and switch back and forth to the DJ was seamless!

I will 100% book another event with privatepartyroom. I loved working with the team, I think your event spaces are great, and overall everyone seriously had a blast. I actually recommended you all on my blog : http://www.behappynyc.com/2010/01/nye-success.html
