The party was great.  All of the guests loved the venue and food, especially the Mac & Cheese wedges.

Everyone from the ladies in the office to the staff at The Gin Mill were amazing at helping me plan this surprise party and making sure the actual surprise was a success.

Your emails and/or phone calls will be returned in a timely manner. They help with giving helpful suggestions and they really work with any concerns or ideas you may have for the party.

The Speakeasy room was the perfect size, decor and was equipped with everything we needed.

My girlfriend even thought our private bartender was really cute.  He also makes really good drinks if you are unsure as to what you want.

Thanks again everyone for a great time.





The party went great — I honestly didn’t expect the food to be as good (but everyone seemed to have loved it)……the service at the bar was awesome (from bartender, to greeter, to the bouncer at the door)…..and the planning process was smooth thanks to  Eat, Drink & Be Merry family!!   Definitely will use you again next time I plan a party in NYC!


Hi There.

Had ANOTHER great Birthday with you guys! Nothing to say except it went smoothly and exactly as planned. You guys are the BEST and it shows why you are pros!




The party was awesome.  The venue was great, everything was in order when I got there (which was like 15 minutes early by the way).

The staff was very nice and Eric the bartender was a great guy.  Very attentive, made sure things were going ok for me, making sure everyone in the space was a friend of mine, etc.

Everyone had a great time, nothing bad to say.  Next time I need to rent out a space, I know where to go.

THanks again .



Thank you so much for all of your help with my birthday party. I had an amazing time and Nancy who was helping out with the event at the 13th step was incredible. She was so accommodating and made sure I was having a wonderful time. Please pass along to her my sincere thanks for a wonderful night. I will be sure to tell friends what a great service you provided and will be sure to have another event with you in the future.


Thank you all for your help!!!



Hey guys-

I just wanted to say thank you for a great night. Your people were more then accommodating and extremely helpful and we had a wonderful time. All in all it was a great night and I really have no complaints. I most likely will booking a party through you guys for future parties because of the service and the more then reasonable pricing. Thank you so much again and I look forward to using eat drink and be merry in the future.

Sincerely, Sal
