Nice Job – Access Gotham did a great job coordinating my good buddy's birthday party at Chelsea Manor - usually there is always a line to get in which blows but Access Gotham had a hook up so we were able to get right in. We had a 2 hour open bar set up for 40 pp and our own little area. The event planners that I spoke with were honest and upfront - none of the typical promoter fake promises. Don't remember all parts of the night but feel that it was time to give props to a nightlife company that really tries hard to do right for their customers. Will definitely use them again on my own birthday.
Don't bother – I contacted them 2 weeks before the day of my party. Even though I chose a venue they work with, they tried multiple times to convince me to change the venue (to make things easier for them). I didn't change it, and they gave me a run around. I was told they'd get back to me if there was a problem, and they didn't get back to me. So a couple of days before the party I tried to confirm, and got more run around. The day of the party they finally told me that the venue has a private party that night, and will be closed. I went on my own to find another venue, and had to call all my guests hours before the party.
Great Job Planning My Party!!! – You made planning my party such a great & easy experience!! I am always nervous in planning parties, but Elizabeth at AccessGotham made it so turn key.
When I rolled up to Empire Rooftop, the door person walked me right , introduced me to the manager and they set me up with a great table. Oh ya, and sent over over a bottle of champagne on the house!! Who doesn't love champagne?!?!
Can't wait for you to plan my 25th birthday next year.

INCOMPETENT GROUP – These guys are a bunch of jokers! If you rely on them, you will get screwed and your event may flop. I relied on them to plan a huge party I was planning, because of the "so-called" good reviews about them, I thought I was in good hands.
After I contacted them about my event, they sent me an email to select a venue from 3 options they provided. I selected one, and that was the last time I heard from them. I sent several emails and left several voicemail messages, but they never returned any of my calls or emails. They are totally incompetent and unprofessional.
Real deal – I used access gotham for a birthday at empire hotel. i had probably close to 50 people come (although not all at the same time, some people came to say hi and left later) and no one had a problem getting in. i had my own area in a great spot in the place, not some random corner or right at the entrance. basically it was the first time in awhile i didn't have to stress on my own birthday which was nice compared to past times when i was supposed to be "taken care of" but wasn't. ya know how everyone's friend is a "promoter"??? well yeah most suck, particularly if you're a guy.
access gotham is legit...plain and simple .
