Murder Mystery Birthday party at The Speakeasy

July 31, 2016 - by

Thank you for checking in. The party could not have gone better! Cortney and Jason were staffing the bar and they were FANTASTIC.  My wife and I arrived earlier than we expected to set up and get things ready, and Cortney was more than happy to have us crash while she finished getting the bar ready. I had told most of my guests to arrive early (to leave time to change into costumes, get familiar, and to make sure we started the game AT 6:30) and she was very gracious, collecting money from everyone since the door staff ended up being late. Her and Jason even got into the game, guessing who the murderer was and listening in at players' conversations. Cortney actually was the only one to correctly guess who did it! They requested to staff any future murder mysteries I may hold -- and I will say many guests came up to me to compliment their efficiency and engagement with everybody. They were also very respectful and flexible when it came time to ship out, as most people needed to change out of costumes and collect their belongings. We ended up clearing the room at around 10:45, and never felt unduly rushed. The food was delicious and truly endless, and everyone had a wonderful time. Some guests who had done these kinds of games before said it was the best one yet. Since I didn't write the game, I can't take credit for that, but I can for sure give credit to the Gin Mill, Cortney and Jason, and Eat Drink and Be Merry for offering the perfect location, a smooth night, and the most attentive planning correspondence I have seen trying to book an event in New York City. I really can't think of anything that needed improvement. So thank you all again! I have already recommended you to everyone I tell about the party, and I look forward to working with you in the future! Interest has definitely peaked for more murder mysteries, and EDBM and the Gin Mill will be my go-to spot. I will also keep your other locations in mind! :) Best to you all - John

30th Birthday Party in The East Wing

July 16, 2016 - by

This is a spot my Son frequents and now I know why.   We had a wonderful time.  The space is beautiful, comfortable and cool on a very hot summer night.  Christine, Niki and Brittany were very helpful with any question or request I had.  The food was delicious - everyone loved it - especially the Chicken cordon blue bites.  Abby, our bartender, did a great job of keeping everyone happy.  Thanks very much for helping me give him a great 30th Birthday celebration!

30th Birthday Party at The Speakeasy

July 16, 2016 - by

Team Eat, Drink & Be Merry (Christine, Niki and Brittany) I can’t thank them enough for organizing my 30th Superhero birthday party. EDBM has a variety of private rooms at different locations, and I thought the Gin Mill speakeasy was a perfect room for my party. Not only do they have a variety of party rooms but they also have a huge food selection and payment plans. Due to all varieties, this made planning my party the easiest process ever! The food was delicious and on time, the service was great and the open bar was top shelf liquor! I know for a fact that I will be planning all of my parties with EDM! You guys are awesome!!!! L
