The whole experience was flawless. The booking process was quick and easy, and the agent was patient and kind. When I got to event, the bar staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and everything was set up perfectly several hours before the event began. Would recommend both the bar and the service to friends.





The party the other night was a blast, and such an easy event to put together thanks to you guys. Everything went great. Me, my brother and my friend were able to get all of our friends together on our birthday, there was no pressure on us as hosts, and the people at Off The Wagon made the experience one to remember.

There really was no hassle on my end putting this together, with Christine and the rest of your team coordinating I felt like all I had to do was show up and have a good time. Thanks again for making everything so easy and so much fun. I look forward to doing more events with you as well.




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 checking in. 

We had an incredible time. The staff was AMAZING! The bartenders were personable and attentive. They made sure everyone was having a great time. 

If we ever find ourselves back in NYC, Off The Wagon will be our 1st stop! 

Thanks for making the last night amazing!

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.

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!



Hi girls,

The party on Saturday was great! My friends and I all had a great time. The planning process was extremely easy and the staff (bouncers, bartenders) at Off The Wagon were great! They were extremely friendly and the bartenders were some of the best bartenders we’ve ever seen- so fast and remembered what everyone was drinking! Thanks so much and I know I will definitely be using Eat Drink and Be Merry in the future and some of my friends have already contacted you for parties in the near future!

Thanks again,

Hi all,

I just want to say thanks for setting up the open bar for my friends and I.  Everything was pretty much perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better set up.  I know it was a last minute call from me, but you were able to pull it off and I really appreciate it.  I am looking forward to setting up an event with you in the future, and I will definitively recommend your services.      

Thanks again,


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,


Thank you SOO much for the wonderful experience. Everything was perfect and we all had an awesome time. Thank you for the follow up and all your help throughout the process. I am certainly going to recommend this service to all my friends.

All the best,


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. 

I was very pleased with everything about my birthday party, from the planning process all the way through to the end of the night. EDBM staff was very courteous, easy to contact and answered my questions. OTW staff was also friendly and welcoming. Will definitely contact EDBM if I plan other events at your locations. Thanks for the great service.

Halloween Party

November 4, 2011

Dear Eat, Drink & Be Merry,

 Thanks letting me book my Halloween party at Off the Wagon.  The staff there was a pleasure to deal with.  Though the bad weather caused some guests to arrive later in the night, the bracelet deal seemed to have worked for those that made it on time. Nothing but good feedback from all of my guests.  🙂 

Thanks again for your help.  I look forward to booking future parties with you and your team.

Thanks again!

23rd Birthday Party

June 8, 2011


The party was great. About 15 people showed. The bartenders were awesome…almost too good! Very generous with the drinks, super fast, etc. We had alot of fun on the balcony part playing flip cup and stuff.  Definitely will be returning to the bar.

Thanks for all your help.  You guys were great too.



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!
