Testimonials

  • My birthday experience was one that will definitely be remembered!! Your entire team was stellar in every aspect of service, and I can't wait to host more events at your lounge in the future.

    - Giselle
  • The team offered a lot of helpful suggestions during the planning process and recommended an amazing DJ, convenient accommodations for our guests, and other outside vendors that made the process easy for us. The space itself is gorgeous, the in house food service is the best you will find at any cocktail lounge in the city and the entire staff is so nice and professional. Our guests had such a great time, a month later they are still talking about it!

    - Angela and Brian Hugo
  • The Manager and Staff ensured we were happy and taken care of and our Bride- to- Be had the night of her life in a Classy, Chic VIP Lounge.

    - Lydia Vincent
  • We had a number of people come up to us and compliment not only the venue's fun decor but also, and most importantly, the attention of the staff; we certainly agree. Everyone was so cooperative and attended so generously to us (the two grooms). They've made it so that our wedding day could not have turned any better than it did on Sunday 7/21.
