We had such a great night!!! Everything was perfect and so well planned and organized. We did not have one problem or one complaint about anything. From the beginning you girls have been great with quick responses to any questions we had and provided us with all the information we needed. Also the food was great and was the perfect amount to keep us going for the rest of the night 🙂 Also everyone was SOOOO nice!!! From Jonathan at the Gin Mill to all the waitresses to Brem our awesome limo driver! I would recommend this to anyone, it really is so much fun and takes the stress out of trying to plan a whole night with big groups of people. Thank you so much for a great experience and a night our bachelorette will never forget!!

 Thank you,

Hi Christine, Kate, Niki and Brittany

Thank you so much for helping me organize my Best Friend’s Bachelorette party.  We had a great time!.  The 13th Step staff were wonderful.  Very attentive, helpful and quick to resolve any issues I had during the party.  I would highly recommend Eat, Drink and Be Merry to plan any event.  I would also recommend The 13th Step because it was perfect for a party.  Everyone that attended had a great time, enjoyed the food and the location.

Thanks again!

I can’t begin to tell you how pleased we all were with the party!  The food was fantastic, the limo was top notch and the service was phenomenal!!!  From the bartenders, servers, limo driver, even the bouncers…everyone was very pleasant and I would recommend this to anyone!  The value was great and it was so much fun!!!  The planning of this event was very easy and the staff that helped plan were always on top of every phone call or email.  I really can’t say enough great things about our experience!  Thank you so much!

What a great experience – thank you!  From the beginning – all of you put up with my constant questions, changing my mind, adding things, money mishaps…thank you for putting up with that! 

 The execution was excellent  – if there were any problems at all it was due to my party and their tardiness (in spite of the warnings all around about being on time!).  The ladies at Down the Hatch were outstanding and catered to us.  The limo driver was excellent.  The bartenders were all great as were the bars we were able to make it to .  The girls loved the dancers (particularly the girl – she was a real ‘performer’ in contrast to the fella – who, in fairness, didn’t actually dance much probably because we were too busy cowering in a corner – LOL).

 What a great way to plan a night like that – let you do it for us – you guys were organized and professional – even in light of all our (caused by my party) mishaps. 

 I don’t think there’s a thing I could complain about or suggest.

If I had another such occasion to plan I would definitely use your company and I would absolutely recommend your company to someone else!

Thank you!

To Christine, Kate, Niki and Cortney, 


thank you so much for everything!  The bachelor party was a hit and we all had an amazing time.  I would recommend you guys to anyone that is looking for a fun evening in the City!  The bars were great and fun.  The atmosphere was second to none and everyone that we encountered along the way was friendly and so helpful.  I cannot say enough about it and I know all 17 guys felt the same way.  

Thanks again:-)

My bachelor party was awesome. Our limo was a half hour late my brother called the manager of the stumble inn he told us it was no problem. He met us at the door sat us down and told us the best bars to go to after we left. The food was amazing and every employee at all the bars we went to was professional and accommodating. We have no problem getting drinks and package for the night was unbeatable. 2 thumbs up from me and all the guys. Would definitely do this again!


Everything went very well thank you! You guys were great with all the follow up before I booked the party right up to the day before it, so thank you. Chris was also great to have out the time we had him and kept us well informed on what was going on. Jon at the Gin Mill was also helpful in getting us set up through our first hour and a half there. I also appreciated he was able to get us $75 off each of the two guys that backed out last minute.
It was nice of Cortney to stop by to make sure everything was going ok too. All in all, I/we had no complaints throughout the night and would definitely book another party with you when the opportunity came up or be very comfortable referring you to others. Thank you again for making it a great night!

All the best,


The Eat Drink and Be Merry Bachelor Party experience is top notch. I started my best man work looking to build a party from scratch, which proved to be costly both on my time and money. After looking around on the internet I found Eat Drink and Be Merry and gave them a call. From that moment the service was stellar, everyone was cheery and helpful from the get go. The steaks at the Gin Mill were awesome, the show in the limo was UNMATCHED, the remaining bars were fantastic. Two thumbs up all around. If you are thinking about doing this, go for it.


Everything was amazing!! Everyone had so much fun and the private room was PERFECT! Having our own bathroom back there was a plus as well. I will for sure be referring you guys to anyone who needs a perfectly planned party! Thanks!!!


Hi Christine,

I just want to say THANK YOU for all of your help during the bachelorette planning process. Friday night was one of the best nights we have EVER HAD! We felt like celebrities and the Bride-to-Be absolutely love it!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help over the past few months and especially the day of the event. I know I was a little skeptical and nervous about how the night was going to pan out, but talking to you made me feel 100% percent comfortable when the time came to make the decision. It truly was a pleasure working with you and I will be sure to recommend Eat, Drink, & Be Merry to anyone looking to have a blast in NYC!

Thanks again,



Leaving some very positive feedback is the least I can do, after how helpful you all have been! We all had an absolutely amazing time, I honestly was thanked multiple times from each of the other members of our party, all because they couldn’t believe how well planned the entire event was. The groom was very well taken care of, had a blast and it was a night we all will remember. I have to thank you all for your amazing help, you answered any and all questions I had, and really it was thanks to you this night was a complete success.

The bars had a great atmosphere, Chris was very helpful letting me know what to do on the night, and was quick to respond when I had questions via text the night of as well. The girls who came for the entertainment were spectacular, I had to close a few mouths in the limo because they fell to the floor on some of the fellas. Our driver, Dimitrius (if I spelt it correctly) was the man, went above and beyond and is BY FAR the best limo driver I’ve ever had. I highly recommend him, and will definitely recommend Eat, Drink and Be Merry for anyone looking to plan a great time. Thank you all again, I can’t express fully how amazing you all were helping getting this night together. Have a happy 4th of July!



Sorry for the late response but it’s been crazy since the bachelor party.

I just wanted to let you know we all had a fantastic time.  The entire party planning process was straight forward and easy to follow.  The hardest part was just coordinating and having people commit on my end.  On the day of the party everything went smoothly.  Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and dinner at the Gin Mill.  The host, Eric, was very responsive and catered to our needs in amazing fashion.  Our party bus was off the hook!  Everyone was having as much fun inside the bus as they were inside the bars.  The all you can drink bracelet definitely made things easier on me and I actually enjoyed myself instead of worrying about the bill or buying drinks for others.

Thanks again for making my brother’s bachelor party a success.



Hey guys,

Thank you so much!  The party was great!! We all had fun (and the tater tots were awesome hahah!!)  I will be sure to do a  review on LI Weddings!

THank you,


Hello Ladies!

Thanks for all your help setting up my brother’s bachelor party!  You

made it so easy for me to organize from Maryland with my crazy

schedule and in the end, it all worked out perfectly.  I wanted to

make a special note that the Speakeeasy room at the Gin Mill was

awesome as was our bartenter.  He made the night completely carefree

and everyone had a great time.

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry was used to set up my bachelor party and I

used it for another one of my brother’s bachelor parties- you can be

assured that we’ll call you again for my remaining 4 brothers when the

time comes!

Thanks, again, for your help!


The party was absolutely great.  From our initial request, you guys kept in touch and followed up to make sure it was all set.  Ray who managed the room made sure we had everything we needed.  The bartender Sam was fantastic, you could barely put an empty glass down and he was on it.  Everybody that attended had a great time.  It is certainly something we will keep in mind if we have need for another event like this.

We loved it  it was a successful event everything was great the people the food the attention the limo driver was really nice and patient with us I have no camplaints we really liked it and im sure all of us are going to be recomending you guys. I really wanted to thank you for everything and made me look really good with my family and friends on my cousin’s Bachelorette party!!! Thanks a lot again!!!


I want to take this moment to thank Kate and everyone at eat, drink and be merry for helping me with my party, It was such a fast and easy process, from start to finish, Kate answered all my questions and the manager at the Oak Cellar was there the whole time making sure everything went right. I will make sure next time I have a special event I will go through you guys.

Thanks again,



Thanks.  My sister had a great time at the open bar portion of her bachelorette party.  Noel was really nice; she called me the day before to introduce herself and see if I had any questions.  And the night of she was attentive and we didn’t really ever have to wait at the bar to order drinks, Noel took care of us right away.  Thank you so much!



Our bachelorette party last Saturday went GREAT! Right from the start, I have to thank and commend Niki for her wonderful service to me while planning this event. There were many times that I emailed her to make some changes and ask questions; and Niki was quick to respond and always very friendly and accomodating to my needs for the event. She is a WONDERFUL asset to the Eat, Drink and Be Merry team. Thank you, Niki.

When we arrived to The Stumble Inn, Manny was extremely helpful and friendly. From the moment we walked in to the restaurant to the moment we left dinner to go into the limo, he made sure that we had his and the limo driver’s contact information in case we needed anything during the night. He was very professional; he let us know when the limo was ready to leave after dinner; was sure to introduce us to the limo driver, and even walked us out to the limo when dinner was over. Once again, I was extremely pleased with the service that Manny gave us while we began our bachelorette party. He was excellent.

The Sex Educator was great. She was professional and fun! I won’t go into too much detail about it, but it was a really good time – and funny! It was great to see the bride-to-be’s reaction once she realized who and what the Sex Educator was in our limo for! (Everything was a surprise). Great “crash course!”

While we visited the other bars during the bar crawl, every bartender was quick to serve us and have fun with us. They were friendly and happy to join our celebration to the Bride-To-Be. When we asked them if they would take our picture, there was never any hesitation or annoyance – they were pleased to take pictures and spend a couple minutes talking with us. Any time we went up to the bar to order more cocktails, they would come to help us immediately. They were really fun and even made a point to say goodbye as we left the bars.

As you can see, we were all very happy with the bachelorette party, and the Bride-to-be will never forget the night! She hasn’t stopped talking about it, which is the best part. Overall, I am most impressed on the exceptional service from every person that helped us throughout the night. You have a really great team!

I only have one, small piece of constructive criticism – the bars should play the music louder to get people dancing and singing.

Great job planning and helping out with our event! It was unforgettable, and I would definitely love to plan another party with Eat, Drink and Be Merry again in the future!

Thank you for making the night so fun and special!

From start to finish our party was a fabulous success!  Thank you very much for the ease and simplicity afforded to us as we planned a fantastic event!  Christine and Kate were quick to respond to any questions i had, or to provide more information and a contract.  They followed up after every step, and really made me feel reassured and taken care of throughout the process.  They have friendly and enthusiastic customer service skills that should be commended!


Every guest was impressed by the unbeatable all-inclusive price and all access pass, along with everything that it covered! We felt like royalty as managers took a genuine interest in our enthusiasm and happiness that night!  From the personalized sign in the front window of The Gin Mill to the personal phone calls made the day before, The Gin Mill’s manager was a pleasure to work with! We were astonished by the dependable, good-natured and quick customer service all evening as well! The food was terrific and the drinks were a plenty! No one had an empty glass or a dry lip! 


Our limo driver was friendly and responsible. He was always waiting right outside when we were ready to move on… or finally go home.  He was so patient and helpful with our technologically-challenged bridesmaids who insisted on controlling the music that night as well!  The limo was spacious and clean, and a really entertaining memorable part of the party!


All of the bars were well-maintained with a welcoming and fun atmosphere.  The lively crowd was never overwhelming or intimidating as we easily mingled with everyone at each establishment!  Traveling in the city can be a tricky venture, but with the courteous staff at each venue we were able to navigate easily and feel comfortable everywhere we went.  Every bar on the pub crawl route was a great  venue for a group gathering, as we coud easily congregate together or spread out and not feel like we would get lost from the group.


Additionally, i am so thankful for the attentiveness given to my food allergies when planning our dinner.  I was amazed by the flexiblity of everyone involved and how accommodating The Gin Mill was in regards to my dining options.  As a reult of my food allergies, i am often left out of many dining experiences… but the manager, Heather, at The Gin Mill wouldn’t let me miss one thing! She was absolutely fabulous!


The following day, many of the guests wrote or called to tell me of their fantastic evening! The guest-of-honor, who is really hard to please. said she had an amazing night!!!  We have many wonderful memories as a result of planning our event through you!  This was the second pub crawl event I have planned with ED & BM and each event was truly a success!  I have never been disappointed with your services.




I hope to work with you again sometime in the future (I have two more sisters who need to be married!!!)


With the most sincere appreciation-
