Hi Brittany, 

I found Eat, Drink & Be Merry to be extremely accommodating! I am a CRAZY type A personality and contacted Niki one full year before my event date. We emailed back and forth for about a month before we found the perfect package  for my party. I told Niki what I wanted (i.e. top shelf, food, 3 hours open bar, etc.), my estimated number of guests and my budget; after that she did the rest. All of my requests were met including streaming music and a beer pong table set up. The night of the party, Eric was great!! He took amazing care of us and the party ran very smoothly. The food was outstanding! I was definitely very impressed. I had a strict timeline which the staff stuck to. All in all we could not have been happier! The Speakeasy is a beautiful room, with an ultra cool vibe and staffed with amazing people! Thanks again!

My husband and all of our guests said his 30th birthday was the BEST they have attended yet!




The event was very successful and so much fun! Our group appreciated the signage that was posted outside and inside the bar.  The food (fried Oreos!) and service was great as well. It was unfortunate that a few of our guest could not make it but everyone that did come made them regret missing the party the next day.

Thank you for following up with me. Also, they said out of all the venues (and we have been to a lot) in NY, this was their favorite.

Thanks Again,


It honestly could not have gone any better.  Thank you also to Eric who ran the bar during the event.  Everyone loved the intimacy and privacy of the Speakeasy room, especially since it came with TVs, a bar, and a table for games.

I would 100% do another event there.

Thanks again,


My guests and I had such a wonderful time Sunday. The space was beautiful and it went perfectly with the vibrant parisian circus theme. Our bartender was very accommodating and super friendly which was also a plus.

I just wish I had a bit more time to set up. I kinda went a bit over the top this year with the decorations for my 30th bday. Other then that there wasn’t any issues. I will def. consider hosing another event at one of your locations. Maybe even the Lido Deck again. I’ve already recommended the place to my friends and coworkers. Everybody is still talking about Sunday afternoon. It just shows how memorable the event ended up to be.

Thanks so much for making my 30th at the Lido Deck unique and unforgettable!



The evening went perfect and made celebrating my 50th Birthday really special.  You made everything easy and simple from picking the food to letting me know how much I needed.  The staff was great the entire evening and my friends and family all had a great time.  Perfect place to celebrate a birthday!  I am sure that some of my friends will be in contact with you for future events.  Everyone said that the space was perfect.

Thanks again.

I had a BLAST at our private party! Everything went perfectly and I can’t say enough about all of the staff. From the bouncers, to the event coordinators and to our bartender, everyone was wonderful and accommodating. The room size worked great for our party of 35 people – no one wanted to leave!

Thanks so much to everyone for a memorable evening. We will surely recommend the “Vice” room to our friends for future events.


As always the event was wonderful. Planning it is painless with you ladies around. All we had to do was show up and have a good time. Thanks so much for helping us out, you and the staff were amazing!



Thank you for reaching out. My event was seamless! Everything was set-up by the time I arrived at 6:15pm. The bartender, Maggie, was PHENOMINAL! As was the bouncer and the manager. I was able to raise ~ $600 for my charity and everyone had an incredible time.

Thank you again,


My party was amazing – everything I hoped it would be.  My husband was thrilled and my guests said it was the best party they had been to in a very long time.

The planning team was great – the advice you gave was right on target and I appreciated the fact that all were mindful of my budget and that no one pushed me to go further, in fact, you helped me stay on budget. I only wish I could have met all of you in person!

The staff at the East Wing was also wonderful.  They were attentive, friendly and helpful.  Everything went so smoothly.  I was a little nervous about the food as I had not had an opportunity to taste it.  Again, I was not disappointed as the food was very good.

The casino tables were a big hit, especially with my husband.

The entire evening was perfect and so professionally done.  Special kudos to our bartender!

I would not hesitate to book another party with you.  I was extremely satisfied and would recommend Eat, Drink and Be Merry unconditionally.

Best regards, 


Thank you very much.  The bachelor party was a great success!  The bar and and bartender were terrific, and the entertainment was exceptional.  Tatiana and Kim exceeded all expectations.  I appreciate you guys putting it together with less than two weeks notice.  

Thanks again, and I will definitely recommend your service in the future.  



We really enjoyed it! It was super easy. The door man was great to us. The bar tender treated us very well. It’s the second year we went because of the service and friendliness of them. We look forward to next year!

You guys know how to do it well. Thanks so much.



Hi Ladies,

The party was awesome, I had a great time and had a great turn out. Your staff was awesome especially Todd, I’m sure that was his name he was the bartender. I may do another event at the end of March and was wondering if I can request the same staff.

I can’t say I have a single negative thing to say it was great from the drinks to the food, I just wish you guys had Heineken lol. Thanks again for all your help with helping me plan the event. Look forward to planning more events with you ladies.
