Hello sorry for the delay! Ending and beginning of the year are huge days. Paperwork is immense!

Otherwise, our party was amazing! I can not be anymore grateful and appreciative of your company and party planners. They were not pushy or up selling at all throughout the whole process. They worked with me on the packages and helped me stick to my budget. I felt as if they were actually going to the party with the detail they paid to our event! It was nothing sort of amazing With that being said you guys provided some of the best food and service I have experienced. I could not be anymore appreciative and grateful that I booked with your company. Going forward I am looking to make this a tradition and you guys will definitely be a part of it. If there is anyone I have to email or call to put in a recommendation, please let me know. 

You guys deserve the fan fare.

Thank you so much,

The party was fantastic. I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews from everyone that came. We had friends in from all over, Maine to Virginia, and everyone was happy to be in NYC for the night most definitely thanks to 3 Sheets as a great party location. Brandon and Jen were excellent behind the bar and all the support staff kept things running smoothly. We could not ask for a better atmosphere between the food, TVs, and music.

Thanks for accommodating us, and I wish you all the best in the New Year.



Hello Ladies and Happy New Year!

Dan and I, along with our guests, had an amazing time at The East Wing. We received many compliments on the party, food, and atmosphere. Our guests have been asking us what the plan is for next year already! We really cannot thank you enough for an amazing experience. The planning process was extremely easy. The event was fantastic. 

Overall we had an incredible experience. I know that I will recommend EDBM to friends and family for events, as I am sure Dan will as well. 

Once again thank you for everything.


Andrew and Dan


Hi All,

I just wanted to send an email thanking you for the WONDERFUL job you guys did setting up our party at Hair of the Dog. Everyone had a great time and it was the perfect venue, food, etc for our crowd. Please extend my thanks to Kate at Hair of the Dog and the rest of the team there (they were amazing and wonderful and we can’t say enough great things about them!!!!!!!)

You guys really knocked it out the park for us! 

Happy Holidays and Thanks again!!! We will definitely be working with you again in the future.




It was a pleasure working with you and your team Christine.  You guys were quick to respond to all of our questions, very flexible in accommodating our requests, gave us good guidance on how to order and had all the details covered.  The room was perfect – big enough to spread out, but small enough to still give us a feeling of togetherness.  It had everything you possibly need – private bar, private restroom, lots of TV’s, iPod dock, and room for games.  The food was tasty (Swedish meatballs were a big hit) and they did a good job of continuing to fill it.  People flipped out when they brought out the warm chocolate chip cookies!  

We will certainly look to you guys for our next function. Thanks for everything!

Dear Christine, Kate, Niki, & Brittany,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to all of you.  Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful and Happy New Year.

I just want to express my deep appreciation for a wonderful party you supplied us with.  From the food, to the drinks to the karoke…everyone had a terrific time.

I must admit it is the first time I have never heard a negative remark about a company affair.  I truly look forward to working with all of you in the near future.

Many thanks to Andrew for opening the door…and of course all of you who made this happen.

My Wishes for A Wonderful 2013,

Holiday Party at The Gin Mill

December 28, 2012

I would like to take this opportunity to say great job to the staff at Eat, Drink and Be Merry and The Gin Mill for a great job on our party on Friday 12/21. The staff at edbm were great, made the planning process a breeze and pain free. The Gin Mill, Mgr. John and staff were bending over backwards to give us whatever we needed, and even upgraded our area to fit our party better. The food was great, hot and tasty, and the Buffalo wings kicked ass.

We will definitely use you service and go back to the Gin Mill again.



Hello team,

The party was great!!  Everyone we came in contact with was phenomenal – from Niki and Brittany that gracefully answered all of my questions, to Cortney and Blake who were amazing at the actual event.  I actually was at Jake’s last week and Cortney recognized me and said hi and it will definitely bring me back there for happy hour etc!  Huge thank you to all of you for your patience, smiles/happy phone voices, and your hard work and dedication to make my event a success.

I really appreciate it and will be in contact for future events I’m sure!!

Hey, I just wanted to thank you and your staff for another wonderful party through your company.  Everyone was super helpful in the weeks and days leading up to the party making sure every loose end was covered.  Our bartender Molly was super friendly and made sure all of our guests were taken care of.  Our doorman was great as well as the rest of the staff who made sure the food was well stocked and helped with other concerns as well.  Our staff enjoyed the venue and the service and we look forward to having many more events through your company in the upcoming years.

Best regards,

Thank you for your email. The party was fantastic! Everyone had a wonderful time. The food, drinks, and space were all exactly what we wanted and what we were told they would be. We were especially happy with the service from the bartender. He was very attentive and helpful. The planning process was quick and very easy thanks to you. We will definitely consider using you guys again next year!

 Thanks again!

Thanks for another successful event.  I got great reviews from everyone who attended.  In fact, lots of people thought I put a whole lot more work into the event than I did.  I had to give credit where credit was due and let them know how simple you guys make everything.  Our attendance was up from last year and we look forward to locking on a bigger party room from you next year.  Thanks for everything and have a great Holiday Season.

The planning process was very easy. Everyone there was very helpful and I liked the different options for both the bar and the food.

The party went very well. The food was good amd Heather the bartender was great. Really liked the space and the fact that you had a table and plastic cups for flip-cup made the party even better.


I meant to write you earlier thanking you all for a wonderful party! We had a great time at The Speakeasy. We loved the atmosphere and everyone on your staff was very professional, helpful, and great to deal with – during the planning stages as well as during the actual event. Thank you again for all of your help and we definitely plan to have future staff parties at The Speakeasy!



It was awesome as expected! The bartenders, doorman and bar back did an amazing job. Everyone had a great time and I looked good for setting it up!! 


Hey Guys,

Thank you again for helping me set up my holiday party.  We were very well taken care of and everyone had a great time.  I am so glad I decided to book with you and I appreciate all of the assistance getting it put together.

I look forward to definitely using Eat, Drink & Be Merry to book my next event.

Thanks again,



The party was great!!! I’ve been planning our parties for the last couple of years and you guys were the easiest and most professional to deal with.  The food was great and of course the drinks were too 🙂 Everyone had the best time and already asked me to plan in next year with you guys!!! Thanks again. 



Overall the event went very well. The bartenders were very friendly and engaging. Seemed genuiunly interested in ensuring the guests had a good time. The event managers, (Erin and I forgot the gentleman’s name who came later) very accomodating and responded to any requests.

People liked the appetizers and they were replenished as promised. They came out on time as well. Everything on the contract was lived up to.  Use of the flat screens and ability to plug in an IPOD is cool.

My guests had a good time! I would recommend you guys to my colleagues.


Thank you for all the help. The party was a huge success! We got a lot of positive feedback and everyone had a great time. The staff at the Lido Deck were great. They were friendly and helpful and everything ran smoothly. The space looked great and the food and drink were plentiful and tasty. The DJ was great, too. He was friendly and played a great mix and karaoke (though we didn’t have too many singers!) we were very happy with the event and would definitely do it again and recommend you highly.

Thank you,


The party was very nice.  The staff did a great job, the food was prepared and served well and the remodeled room was very nice.  Please reach out to us again next year; although I may want to entertain an alternate venue for variety.

Good luck with the rest of your holiday parties; this must be a very busy time for you.



Our NYE party at the Speakeasy room was a huge success. All the guests came up to me throughout the night constantly thanking me for putting such a great event together and proclaiming it was the best NYE of their lives. This is a pretty big feat!

I was pleasantly surprised with the smooth process to book the event. Kate was fantastic to work with and answered all my questions in the weeks leading up to the event. I truly felt like I was in good hands.

Night of, the bartenders Eric and Audrey were awesome. All my guests loved them and tons of people took pictures with them!

Logistically, the room was laid out perfectly. The two tables in the corners were utilized as were the chairs at the bar. The space fit 100 comfortably, though I do believe 125 would have been excessive. Eric was great with adjusting the temperature and turning off the fireplace as the room filled with guests.

The drinks were great, I heart code blue and had NO HANGOVER on New Year’s Day!

The food unfortunately was a miss. We didn’t see the items that we reviewed prior to the event (no chicken fingers) and the items first put out were not what we thought (meatballs, meat on a stick?). Eventually I saw mozzarella sticks (I was waiting for those). I was sad to see all the food was taken away before 11:30pm, I was under the impression the food would constantly be replenished throughout the night. Luckily, people don’t come for the food and I don’t think this distracted from the positive party experience at all though it was disappointing.

The DJ was OK, his taste was not to our liking so we put on our ipod for a bit. In hindsight, I would have created more mixes on my ipod and have been better prepared. I did not plan to use it. Luckily, the process to plug in the ipod and switch back and forth to the DJ was seamless!

I will 100% book another event with privatepartyroom. I loved working with the team, I think your event spaces are great, and overall everyone seriously had a blast. I actually recommended you all on my blog : http://www.behappynyc.com/2010/01/nye-success.html

Thank you!!!
