Hi guys,

Another great party!

Loved the private space at The East Wing.  At first I was sad to be

away from my Westside crew (Cortney, Blake), but after this party I

realized that the staff is wonderful at all locations!  Ryan was so

lovely and sociable with my guests.  He smiled the whole party and was

patient and helpful with all of my questions.  Otoniel was a huge help

as well.  He helped my mother and I carry all of the decorations in,

and at the end of the party, I looked up and he had cleaned and

collected everything!  Alex was great at the door too – very friendly

and warm to my guests.

Thanks so much for you help and I will be calling you for the next one!

Best as always,

My party was fantastic!!!!!!!! Everything was fantastic!!!

The room was amazing and exactly the right size for my guest to feel comfortable and not cramped. 

The bartender was absolutely fantastic. He mixed drinks like a champ and was very diligent about telling me how much was left on the bar tab.

The food… Amazing! My guest were all raving about how delicious everything was. My mom couldn’t believe a slider could taste that good!

The bouncer was so attentive to the door and although he looked like one tough dude, he was extremely sweet.

This entire experience working with Eat Drink and Be Merry has been so great!!! You took so much stress out of what is normally a daunting process.

Thank you all so much for making my 25th so amazing!

Hi all,

The party was fantastic! I can’t thank you enough for being part of it’s success. From the very start of planning, you all were amazing—extremely helpful, patient, and knowledgeable in event/party planning. I appreciated the individual attention, “hand-holding” and advice. You guys are wonderful!

The Gin Mill Speakeasy staff were fabulous— from Tim the bartender to John our server. All were just great. 

I will definitely recommend your service to my friends— actually, I already have. Thank you so much for taking the worry out of the event— and leaving me free to enjoy the party!





Sorry I took so long to get back to you with feedback, but I’ve been extremely busy.

The Gin Mill was such an awesome place! When we arrived, they had a sign welcoming me for my birthday and we quickly found a table at the end of the main bar space. We had enough room for the 10 people that showed up, and no one bothered us the entire night. 

The bar tender was amazing! After we each ordered 2 rounds, he knew exactly what we wanted the entire night. As soon as we walked towards the bar, he was already pouring our drinks! With some open bars, the bar tenders tend to almost ignore you, since you are getting unlimited drinks all night, and that can be a real pain. But the service at The Gin Mill was A+!

I have been to Down the Hatch for a few parties, and always had a good time. I didn’t think you could get better than that…but The Gin Mill definitely was! I will absolutely book more parties through you guys, and will be returning to The Gin Mill.

Thank you for everything you did to make my 25th birthday a great success!

Hi there! The party was an absolute success! The birthday boy was quite surprised. The bartender Eric was very attentive from the minute I walked in. The finger foods were also quite the hit, especially the sliders which people were fighting over. Thank you so much for helping this go so smoothly and checking in with me in the weeks/days before the day of. I was left with no questions or concerns, other than making sure guests didn’t spill the beans!

My party was so much fun!! l will definitely recommend it to all my friends. All my friends who went had a blast! The bartender Courtney was especially nice and really went out of her way to make sure we were having a good time! The Oak Cellar was perfect for me and my friends. I never had to wait for a drink and all my friends loved the space. From start to finish this party so easy to book thanks to Eat, Drink and Be Merry!
