I had a great time and everything went smoothly. The staff for the party had a fun, positive energy. The DJ (Reggie) was awesome- he listened to our needs/wants and really came through with a difficult task of mixing everything from salsa to country and a little R&B. The food was also really good. This is a great place for a party because it has the bar upstairs and the dance floor with some seating downstairs, so people can really mix it up. Highly recommended for partying.
