Listen, friends, if you want to throw a nice party on a budget, I strongly suggest STITCH! I moved to NYC from LA just before my husband's 30th birthday on October 15th. For weeks I researched venues in this city, and most of them, though beautiful, have a rental fee or require that you spend a certain amount in food and beverage, etc. All I wanted was a cool, private area to bring together close friends, but as time went by, that began to seem like an impossibility, until I found Stitch. A great space with no fee and no minimum? Seemed too good to be true. So, before making a decision, I read every single review posted on this site. Some made me feel confident about Stitch, others made me a little nervous. But, in the end, I decided to take a chance and I am so glad that I did. I can't account for any of the negative reviews you might read if you keep scrolling down, but I can assure you that my experience was 100 percent satisfactory. Stitch provided everything I wanted and much more. I was given the party area upstairs. It has a private bar (you can have an open bar or simply a cash bar), lots of seating, and wonderful intimate lighting. I ordered party platters through Stitch which were set up beautifully on a white linen table, hot and ready to eat, just before my guests arrived. I ordered a birthday cake from somewhere else, but Nick, who rules, still allowed me to drop it off that afternoon. They kept it safe and cool for me all day, and the moment I needed it that night, they brought it directly upstairs and placed it on the food table. Best part? They have a flat screen on the main wall upstairs for your own personal use! I burned a slideshow on my laptop of my husband's life and played it all night! They cannot allow sound for obvious reasons, but it was that final personal touch that made the evening, bringing so much joy and laughter to my guests. So, please do yourself a favor and take a meeting with Nick. He'll take excellent care of you. \r
Pros: Great Service, Great Party Room, Great Music
Cons: I can't think of any. Really.
