IT WAS GREAT! I would like to thank Emily, and the rest of the EAT,DRINK, and be MERRY team! It was a great Mardi Gras!! I will definitely throw another bash at JAKE’S!



The party was entirely a success. The bar was prepared for our arrival and the service was great. I’m amazed at how little effort it took me to set up this event; you guys do an outstanding job taking care of everything. I look forward to using Eat, Drink, & Be Merry in future events big and small.


Christine, Kate, Niki & Cortney,

My Party at Down the Hatch this past friday for my girlfriend went great! Everyone had a blast! Thanks for getting the plans all set up! Look forward to arranging future parties with ya!



The party was great. We had lower numbers than we had originally hoped for, but that didn’t affect the wonderful time we had catching up with our NYC Alumni. This event allowed us to connect alumni from our first summer in 1988 to staff from 2009. It was wonderful to see Alumni share their memories and traditions from their time at Camp!

Everyone at the Havana Room was friendly and helpful, and the layout of the space was perfect for a happy hour! We would highly recommend it to others!

Thanks for making the planning super easy.

All the best for a successful year at Eat, Drink & Be Merry,


The party was a huge success!  we had a great time and the place was a nice size for a party of 50.  The bartenders,bouncers and onsite manager were very friendly and easy going.  the only criticism i have is that i didnt realize we only had the room from 11-2.  i thought open bar was from 11-2 and that we could stay and party until 3 or 4 whenever people decided to leave.  To me  if you let us hang out until 3-4 you would have only made more money because we would have been paying for drinks.  Regardless it was a great turnout and thanks for making my party a success



Hi all,

We were very happy with the party!  Everything went really well.  We were particularly pleased that everyone worked closely with us and held the venue until we could get NYU to cut the check.

Thanks again!


Hello Christine, Kate, Niki & Cortney,

I just want to say “thank you” to all of you!  The party was great, everyone enjoyed themselves, the venue was warm and cozy, and the eats were fantastic!  The party was certainly a success!

Again, thank you for all your help, and much needed reminders J



p.s. You are certainly welcome to post if you desire.

Hi there,

I have been meaning to contact you.

Thank you so much for the evening.  It was a great night enjoyed by all.  The pubs were great, the strippers were marvellous and the limo was just splendid.

I think we will definitely be using you again in the near future for more great nights.

I cannot thank you highly enough.

I wish all the best.

Speak to you soon.

Kind regards


The whole evening was fantastic, as Rachel, Will and Mike were more than accommodating to us.  I can’t wait to do it again next year

Hi Guys,

I  wanted to get back to your email and let you know we had a great time Saturday night. A few of my friends including me actually went earlier than the 830 open bar to take advantage of the pre game package from 7-PM. Service was fast, the bouncer took care of us as far as handling the money only thing is it was stated for every 15 guests we were suppose to get one free bracelet I don’t believe we received that but not that big of a deal. Your bar was incredibly packed which is a good thing I guess. Music was good, again the service was quick our entire party was on the top floor the whole time. Bathrooms were very crowded we stayed well after the open bar was ended. We were there to 1 am at least. The no dress code made a lot of guests very happy and comfortable. I’m very satisfied with the night and plan to use your bar for upcoming events. Thank you for all of your help and courtesy and hope to speak to you again soon.

Thanks!  The event went great.  You guys were very helpful. thank you.  It was great that you were on top of it and kept calling back! Thanks again!



I had a very good time, the planning was well done-all of my guests feedback was very positive-the guests loved the finger food and the staff was superb-several of my guests indicated to me that when they havethe need they would use your facility for a party.

the only complaint was from one of the guests who while waiting for her ride, was told she could not remain in the outer vestibule-other than that I received only great reviews.



The party was very successful.  Christine and Brooke our waitress were awesome and pleasures to work with.  Christine made the process extremely easy for me and I recently spoke to one of the party guests and the first thing out of his mouth was how great our waitress, Brooke, was.  My biggest fear when I was planning the party was not having a bar in the living room but with Brooke as our waitress I never had to worry about anyone waiting on a drink, very impressive.  Through out this whole process, setting up the party with Christine, and going to Jakes for the surprise, it was a great experience and in the future I will definitely think of you when I’m planning my next event.  Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

Thank you,


Hi All,

I’m sorry that I didn’t respond earlier, I just found this email in my spam folder.  Our event went very well.  Everyone throughout the planning process and the night itself was very nice and helpful.  We raised over $1500 that we donated to Partners in Health.  Thank you so much for being so great to work with and helping us raise so much money for a very important cause.

Thanks so much and hopefully we will be able to work together again on another party!


Hi Niki,

Everyone had a great time at the party!  My sister was very happy!!!  Thank you!  Also, I want to tell you Julie, the manger on site that night was awesome!  She was always smiling and very accommodating!   I was also very very impressed with the bartender (did not get her name).  They were both pleasant and professional, which really helped set the mood of the party.

I will defiantly recommend your company.
