Hi All,

Again, I just wanted to thank all of you as well as the staff at all the locations for an amazing time.  This time was even better than the first and everyone was astounded by the staff, service, and selection. I’m sure this won’t be our last time planning an event with you and look forward to working with you in the future! Thanks again and have a happy and healthy holiday season!





Hey girls—

Yes the party was a complete success! Everyone is still talking about it!! 

As you know we started at Down the Hatch, walked too Off the Wagon , but some of my guests liked the other place better & so we split up went to 3 Sheets Saloon and then right back to Down the Hatch! 

Highly recommended! We had the best time ever! Thank you so much.

Happy holidays girls!DH_111909_050

A very happy customer! Grayce


Thanks for your help in coordinating a successful birthday celebration! Your website was easy to use, our communication was clear and concise, and my guests had a blast crawling through the West Village.

I will definitely be recommending Eat, Drink & Be Merry to my friends for future events. We enjoyed your service and will continue to frequent your bars as a result.

Party was EXCELLENT. The best atmosphere for people my age. The bartenders were warm and inviting. You were all so available to answer my questions…couldn’t have asked for a better 23rd! 🙂




First, thank you for letting me celebrate my 24th birthday at your establishment. Both my friends and I had an excellent time. In fact, things could not have gone better. The package I ended up going with (mini pub crawl) was an excellent fit for my friends and the way we like to celebrate, with a bang. 

Secondly, I would just like to mention how the booking process was smooth and seamless. Your personnel were very helpful and I loved the idea of photographing my contract and forwarding it to your email. Very clean, convenient and effective way of getting things done.

Lastly, I’d be re missed if I didn’t mention the Staff at 3 Sheets Saloon. Hands down one of my all time favorite bars and I’m glad I had an opportunity to celebrate it with some of the finest bartenders in the city. SHOUT OUT to 3 Sheets and the Eat, Drink & Be Merry family for making this a birthday to remember!



The party went great! I’ve always loved Down the Hatch. Every time I’ve been there people are having fun, its a great mix of people having a good time, laughing, flirting, I’ve never seen a fight break out. The girls are always super approachable. All the boys had a great time, I had a great 30th birthday and I was very pleased with the service and the way the night went. Not only would I recommend to others that they have a birthday party but I would come back for another event like this. I always tell people when they ask where they should go in the city to come to Down the Hatch and thats not about to change anytime soon. Great Night. Thanks so much guys.


Thanks for everything!  We had an absolute blast.  It felt like we were back in college; beer pong and tons of drinks!  You guys will definitely be our first call next time we want to do a bar crawl.  Thanks again.

All the best,


Hi EDBM team,

Friday’s party for our friend Dan was great! Everyone had a blast. We always do at all of your bars! The next night we ended up at another one of your bars, “Off the Wagon”, which is our designated end of night spot almost every time we all go out. The boys absolutely love it there! 

Thanks again for another great party! You’ll be hearing from me soon I’m sure 🙂



Hello Ladies,

This was about my 5th or 6th party with you, and I have to say you always do the best job! Thank you so much! I recommend you to everyone I know!

The party was in a word awesome. Thanks to everyone from the “worker bees” who planned everything to Nick at Down The Hatch. We never waited for a drink and even though the party was booked only a week in advance it went off without a hitch. 


Thanks for the follow up, the party went perfectly!! Nicholas was VERY surprised and everyone else enjoyed the drink bracelet special.  Thanks for helping me plan a fun night for my friends, hopefully we can set something up again in the future!

Thanks 🙂


Everything went wonderfully and all of my guests had a fabulous time! Without a doubt my best birthday yet! I will definitely contact you in the future!

Thanks again! 



    Everything was great from setting up the party to the night itself. You guys made setting the party up simple and easy. The night was awesome and everyone definitely enjoyed themselves. Ill probably be setting up another party in a few weeks so talk to you soon.



Hey guys,

The party went great! My friends from New Orleans really had an awesome time and loved the experience in New York. The atmosphere was fantastic, as it was a crowd that was just there to chill and have a good time. I personally loved the selection of music, as it wasn’t just a mix of everything you hear on the radio.

The manager for the night (I forget her name) came over when we got there and personally made sure we were comfortable and told us to let her know if we needed anything. You just don’t get that kind of service and attention at any other bars in the city, so we really appreciated that!

We can’t wait to plan our next party at Down the Hatch!

Thanks again for everything,


Hey Christine,

The party was great we had a great time everything went very smoothly everyone showed up and had no complaints. I will definitely be booking another party with you! Thanks again

Party went extremely well! The place was great for the type of event planned and everyone enjoyed. Bartenders were great and poured some strong drinks. We liked that the place was not too crowded even though it was a Saturday. Will definitely plan another event with you guys. Thanks!


Dear Christine, Kate, Niki & Cortney,

I just wanted to say that our Wicked Pub Crawl on Saturday, July 17 was a tremendous success. From the Gin Mill where we started and all through the night we enjoyed the best treatment from bartenders, waitresses, managers and security. We had a reliable driver and great girls. The planning was very well done and I want to thank you for a great service in bringing all the elements together. As best man, I was feeling a lot of pressure to deliver an epic bachelor party for my brother. Your careful planning took a lot of the pressure off of me, and I still got to take all the credit! Our guests were blown away by it all, and we had a great night. Thank you!



Hi Girls,

Everything went extremely well.  All of our contacts, Chris, Lloyd at Down the Hatch, Jake the Limo Driver, among others took excellent care of us.  Thank you very much for helping me put this together, and if I’m ever planning another event in NYC I will contact you, and I’ll pass your name along to others.



Bachelor Party

July 19, 2010

What a night. All of my friends have either called or emailed and told me it was the best bachelor party ever. The food was awesome at stumble inn. We hung out with the bacheloret party most of the night. They booked with u also. We had a blast with them. The limo and the driver were very cool. The 2 girls in the car were fun and great looking. If I were to do it again I think I would try and hit all the bars and pay for another hour. We missed 3 of them. I have all ready recommended your service to a buddy of mine. Your customer service is great and the bars are top notch. Thanks and if the chance comes up again your the first # I call.



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!
