It's been two days since my daughter's bat mitzvah party at SPACE and while the whole, perfectexperience flew by like a dream, I am slowly remembering details and moments that furtherconvince me of your genius and the uniquely flawless experience of choosing SPACE forany important event.
As I look through photos and talk tofriends, I am continually reminded of allthose little details that made the partyspecial. From the ideas I had orcomments I made months ago that youcarefully recorded so that I would findthem fully executed when I walked in forour photo session before the guestsarrived to the little and grand touchesyour innovative team created toenhance and highlight the theme ormood we tried to express. Somehow,you were able to understand exactlywhat I wanted when even I didn't fullyunderstand what I was asking for, andturn that into a fully realized dream of aparty. What impressed me most aboutthe entire experience....and there is somuch to applaud....was your staff.Everyone was 100% on board, professional and incredibly talented. The food was absolutelyout of this world. We threw your chef a bit of a curve ball by requesting an all-vegetarian BatMitzvah party, but he never blinked an eye and proceeded to create an ingenious and creativemenu that was not only delicious, it was downright decadent.
Charlie and his team of DJ and Dancers kept the party going. Every moment of this process,from planning through execution, was a pleasure. Working with you, Diana and Maria was apure joy and the final product was more than we ever hoped for.
I feel like right now, for New Yorkers, it's like this well-kept secret. I don't expect it to stay thatway for long! Thank you for making our special day more than perfect and for creating anamazing experience for our daughter, our whole family and all of our friends. We are so happythat we chose SPACE for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party!

Dear SPACE Team,
Steve, Sam and I (and Avi and Harry) want to thank you all for everything you did to makeSam's Bar Mitzvah so amazing. It was so unbelievably awesome that it's hard to find the rightwords. Let's put it this way. As you know, I have extremely high expectations. Diana, Maria andthe entire team surpassed every one ofthem. From the decor to the food to themusic, everything was amazing. Theattention to detail, the design, theentertainment and the staff were farbetter than anything I (or Sam orSteve) imagined. Whenever I washungry or thirsty, Maria or Diana werebringing me food or drink, making sureI had what I needed while I wasgreeting guests, taking pictures, andenjoying the event. It was a wonderfulexperience. Before the event, severalpeople were asking me whyEnglewood when we live in Montclair.But after, everyone has been callingand texting me to tell me how much funthey had and how amazing it was. It'sdefinitely the best party I've ever beento and I can't even imagine what itwould take to make it better-exceptperhaps more time.
Sam told meover and over how amazing it was andhas been thanking me ever since. Ihave no idea what we'll have to do totop it for Harry and Avi, but I'm surewith you guys on it, it will be a nobrainer. And next time, I'll certainlyworry less and enjoy more knowingyou and your team have it all undercontrol.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Just a note to thank you for the incredible job you and your team did by designingand installing the décor at Valbella Restaurantin New York City in honor of my husband 60thbirthday party. You were able to design tablesthat evoked the elegance and sophistication inkeeping with our James Bond theme. Youkept a cool head, even on a busy and crowdedSaturday in Manhattan. My husband was delightedand completely surprised by the atmosphereyou helped create. As incredible asyour parties at Space are, your artistic sensibilitiesreally flow when you design offsite parties.You are an amazing talent and I amblessed to call you my friend. Thank you foreverything!
Lots of love!

“We are just coming down off our high for the weekend!! I am so grateful to you,Elvira, Diana, the MC, dancers and your entire staff! Never in our wildest dreamsdid we think we could pull off such an awesome party. Not only is Space thecoolest venue a kid/adult could imagine, but you and the entire staff are incomparable.You catered to our every need right from the beginning. You calmed mynerves and held my hand (since I was completely overwhelmed) from the planning,to the decor, to the food, and handling the favors, you were in constant contact withme and even called and wanted to come in on your days off just to accommodateme. Your attention to detail is amazing andwe will never forget your willingness to goabove and beyond to help us in any wayyou could. I could go on and on about you(and I totally did during the party wheneveryone was raving about the food, centerpieces,arcade, the MC & entertainment,and just everything) .... You and Diana ranthat show like nobodies business!! Youmade sure Andy and I were fed, that we haddrinks, that the room was nice and cool forAndy ;-), that everyone was seated correctly,that the MC had every request he neededand you just handled every single detail sothat we could enjoy our own party. TheMC and dancers had those kids (and adults)up and dancing all night long. I have neverencountered such an attentive, nice, energetic,fun staff. You are just amazing!!Jordan and his friends had the time of hislife and for that I am most grateful. AbsolutelyI know who call for our next party!!!My two younger ones are already planning their parties there-lol!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Diana, Nikki, Charlie, Elvira and the Entire SPACE Team,
Thank You!!! Our family truly thanks you all for creating and delivering the mostoutstanding Bar Mitzvah celebration for Drew that we could have hoped for.Saturday night was phenomenal in every way and was truly one of the bestnights of our lives! You truly delivered and exceeded our vision and expectationswith perfection. We truly loved absolutely everything!
Elvira, when I initially met withyou and explained that we hadalready booked a traditionalcountry club venue and a DJand were vacillating overmaking a change, you just toldme to go with what my heartand instincts were telling me. Icouldn't be more thrilled andsatisfied that I did! My son hadthe night of his life and so didour entire family. We had familyand friends from near and farincluding all over the West Coast and everyone was in awe of everything atSPACE.
I'm sad it's over, but fortunately for all of us, we get to do this again in just twoyears. I don't think I can ever walk into SPACE or even think about it without asmile on my face. Drew had the party of his dreams last night celebrating with hisfriends and family. It was exactly what he wanted and I know that he will alwaysremember his Bar Mitzvah celebration. It was the ultimate teen party that wasawesome for adults and families too. Seth woke up this morning and asked if wecould definitely have his party at SPACE too and is already planning it! So not"goodbye"......but until we see each other again!!
With total appreciation and gratitude,

Many thanks to Elvira and staff for a very memorable party."

Dear Elvira, Diana, Maria, Nicole and the entire SPACE staff,
There are simply no words to describe howgrateful we are for the incredible party youdesigned for Julia. There was never a doubtthat we would be returning to SPACE afterour son's Bar Mitzvah three years ago. Andyou did not disappoint this time! Every lastdetail of the party was beyond our highestexpectations: the food, music, attentivestaff, and most of all the stunning fabulousdecor designed exclusively for Julia. Youbrought her #SparkleWithJules theme to lifein the most beautiful creative way and wecould not have been happier. From the logobanner, to the SnapChat geo-tags, to thelight up lounge seating, to breathtaking tablesettings, everything was just perfect! And ontop of all that, Steve and I were blown awayby how attentive your staff was during ourevent. Whether it was making a food platefor us when we were too busy to eat, ordealing with a guest's food allergy, or evenhelping us arrange a surprise entrance forunexpected guests, we could not have askedfor anything more. The complements aboutSPACE have continued pouring in, even aweek after the party!

Dear Elvira and team Space,
I wanted to take the time to thank youfor doing such an outstanding job atZach's Bar Mitzvah. From thechallenging theme that forced you toinnovate to differentiate from a similarthemedevent just days beforehand - tothe centerpieces, decor, Charlie the DJ,the furniture, and everything you guysdo, it was perfect. Kids had loads offun, adults had a blast, and you made itall look totally effortless. Thanks againfor all your hard work creating a BarMitzvah Zach will never forget!”

"It was even more amazing thesecond time around”!
That was the constant comment weheard from our guests during Dani’sBat Mitzvah. Three years ago we hadone of the best nights ever duringRyan’s party. Our daughter immediatelyknew then that she too wanted a“SPACE” event. It was an easydecision for us since we knew that allof the details would be handledprofessionally allowing us to focus onenjoying ourselves….and enjoyourselves we did! Our guests ravedabout the food (your food stations werean absolute hit) and the décor wasabsolutely fantastic which really comethrough in the pictures and video. ASPACE party is known for its music andonce again we were on our feet theentire time. The only negative that Iwould have to say is that a party at SPACE goes by much too quickly!
We look forward to sharing more family events with our SPACE “family” in the future. Onceagain our deepest thanks to you and your staff for providing us with a truly memorable day.
Hector and Stephanie DaCosta
Diana, Elvira & everyone else at SPACE,
We honestly don’t know where to begin thanking you for throwing Logan the Bar Mitzvah of the century! We would have emailed you sooner, but all 3 of our phones are still blowing up with unbelievable compliments from everyone there.
Your team made the night flawless. All 95 kids and 105 adults had the time of their lives. No detail was left out. The entertainment for the kids, the DJ, the decor, the staff & the food were all over the top!
Immediately after the party was over, Logan’s Bar Mitzvah was voted hands down by all the teens as by far the best Bar/Bat Mitzvah they have ever been to. Logan, his parents and siblings could not agree more!
We are so sad the night had to end, but the good thing is – we have 3 more kids!!
You guys are the best!!
Carl, Risa & Logan Calarco
Dear Elvira and Jim,
PERFECTION. We really can’t think of a better word. From the moment we booked SPACE, there was not ONE fear, ONE doubt or ONE question about hosting such an important milestone in our lives at SPACE. Both you and Jim ONLY care and operate with the highest integrity. Elvira, you, Jim and your staff delivered everything that was promised and more. When you say “Trust me we can do it”, it gets done a million percent. Your infectious energy and attention to detail made us feel so confident that everything would only be perfect. You told us countless times that you would treat this as if it was your own daughter’s. Your vision was magnificent with such class and elegance. Seeing Tessa’s face with a smile ear to ear was priceless and everything to us. Nothing is more important than her happiness. There is not one thing that was missed. There is nothing that we wish we could change.
FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY!! Thank you for making Tessa’s Bat Mitzvah the most memorable and incredible evening. We had The BEST experience at SPACE.

Dear Elvira & the Space Staff:
Once you become a mother you are never the same – your priority becomes protecting, guiding, watching, worrying about your child every second of every day! The happiness of that child many times dictates your own! We trusted Space and its amazing crew with Lexi’s happiness on one of the most significant days in her whole life. You did NOT disappoint, you EXCEEDED our expectations on every level: Service, Quality, Décor, Planning, Food, Timeline…even letting us run over our time because our guests would not leave! From the sound checks to your crew packing my car at 2 am – it was perfection!
I did not do a thing but enjoy myself and revel in what you created! As I told you Saturday, if I went to sleep and had a dream about the perfect party that I could give to Lexi, I woke up and it came true! It was the best day of our lives and for our family!
All our love,
Alyssa & Chuck Mogensen – Tenafly, NJ
Hi Elvira & Space Staff:

Elvira and Staff,
It’s been 2 weeks since Alexandra’s Bat Mitzvah and we haven’t stopped smiling yet! “The best night of my life!” is what Alex posted on Instagram that night and I have to agree.
Our party at SPACE was everything we had hoped for and more. It absolutely could not have been any better. From the planning to the execution, you and your team had our back through it all. And given how worried and anxious I was, that was no small feat. When we asked to adjust the menu or create new dessert items or bugged you for the most over the top candy bar ever, you were right there for us, walking us through every step, making sure to leave no detail unaddressed, even the ones I couldn’t think enough to ask about.
You helped us take our vision, our dream, and turn it into a reality.
Our guests were totally blown away by the experience. The phone calls and emails are still pouring in. Adults and kids alike had an incredible time.
The music never stopped and thanks to MC Charlie, the amazing DJ and dancers from HiNRG, the dance floor was jammed all night. The energy level was through the roof. veryone had the most extraordinary night! In fact, several friends and family are now considering having their upcoming simchas at SPACE.
Elvira, the memories you helped us create will last a lifetime – yes, we have photos to remind us of the special day. but the memories we all have of that special night are forever imprinted in our minds. Thank you again for making this the most incredible day for Alex and her moms!!!
We love you guys so much!
