The Oak Cellar at Jake's Dilemma

430 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10024

If you venture downstairs in Jake's Dilemma, you won't believe your eyes. Under an arched stone wall, there is a hand-carved mahogany door that leads into a stylish medieval wine cellar, complete with original masonry mosaics, inlaid Spanish tile, stain-glass lights, a renaissance tapestry and cobblestone floor. Sidle up to the bar and order yourself a hearty draft or a colorful cocktail. With full audio/visual capabilities, i.e. TV's and great music, this room can host a wide range of events from Office Holiday Parties to Super Bowl Parties, from Birthday Parties to Bachelor Parties. And your friends (up to 100 of them) will be impressed that you found the newest and coolest private-party room on the Upper Westside.

"I just wanted to thank you for setting up Saturday for me on such short notice, everything turned out really well and everyone seemed to have a really great time. I will recommend you guys for future events amongst my friends."

- Ellen Kang - Birthday Party

"We had a great party at Jake's Dilemma last Friday. Everyone there was nice and helpful. Rest assured that we will be doing business again in the future. Thank you so much for the assistance."

- Millet Pestano - Office Going Away Party

"Thank you so much for making this past weekend a success. The party this past Saturday was great and everything went very smooth. The staff was expecting me and already had all of the relevant information that we had discussed during the days prior. The room looked great. They served the food on time and when I ordered additional food, they had it ready within 20 minutes. The staff helped with the surprise and made themselves available to me throughout the night.

My girlfriend was so surprised and she couldn’t believe that I organized the party (of course with a ton of help from all of you). My girlfriend had never really had a memorable birthday where she truly enjoyed herself, until her 25th birthday surprise party this past weekend. You were all tremendously helpful, and I appreciate all of your hard work.

Thank you again for all of your help and for making this past weekend special for my girlfriend and I. You are the best."

- Millet - Office Going Away Party

"This was the 6th year in a row booking our fantasy football draft with EDBM and I have to say it was our best event yet! Thanks so much for providing a great atmosphere and EXCELLENT service for the event. The booking was fast and easy and I couldn’t ask for more! We’re looking forward to year 7!"

- Rob -- Fantasy Draft

"Everything turned out absolutely great! Anyone I talked with agreed that the party was perfect. From our first contact with you the preparations went smoothly. The two managers on site were welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived. The food was not just adequate, but delicious. The bartender was efficient and friendly. Nearly everyone came up to me at some point with the same type of comments, and to thank me for having found such a great place. The room was just right for the number of people we were. Everybody had a fantastic time – due of course to what we were celebrating, but also to the ambience and service of our private party room.

I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is interested in a similar event, and if I ever wind up arranging another get-together, you will definitely hear from me."

- Pete -- Reunion

"Super from start to finish. Great food, bar staff and security people. Could not have asked for more and I have been getting a steady flood of email from guests literally raving about what a great party it was. We used you three years ago for our reunion and we will use you again!"

- Ted -- ABC Radio Reunion

"Everyone had a wonderful time at The Livingroom! Smooth sailing from beginning to end. Audrey was a great manager of the event and Ashley was a top-notch waitress. They even went out of their way to help me find a place to hang the piñata. Would definetely recommend your company! Thanks again for everything."

- Pamela -- Joint Birthday Party

"I have to thank both you and the staff of Jakes Dilemma greatly. The party was a success. You guys were wonderful, very accommodating and available. The staff at Jakes was wonderful! The waitress was great and the bouncer was friendly, both had a great attitude. Even the manager helped out. Wonderful job all! I will absolutely be using you again!"

- Margaret -- Going Away Party

"Thank you for making my boyfriend’s 30th party was a huge success! The Living Room was the perfect place and everyone had a great time. The Eat Drink & Be Merry team that helped me to organize the event were all super friendly and helpful. All in all it was just a great experience and I will definitely recommend your services to my friends!"

- Crystal -- 30th Birthday Party
