Dear Vegas NJ Management and Event Staff,
I know a few months have passed since Asha’s Sweet 16 (6/17/17), but we would like to thank each and every one of you for doing a fantastic job at her party. Asha was extremely happy that everything turned out perfect. My husband and I were relaxed and enjoyed our guests because everyone on the team took care of every little detail for us.
From the beginning, working with Lisa, Nicole and Melanie was an absolute pleasure. They really know how to make suggestions where needed and fulfill any special requests. It made planning so simple, effortless and fun! We were so pleased with how polite and diligent your staff is. Their level of service was appreciated not only by us, but some of our guests also mentioned how attentive they were. My mom mentioned that she was looking around for a napkin when one was promptly handed to her without her even asking! My good friend was praising the party but asked if there were any behind the scene mishaps that the guests usually don’t know about, and I have to say, not a single thing went wrong! The bartender was friendly and handled the busy bar with ease. Your DJ did a fabulous job with all the introductions and song requests - everyone was on the dance floor thanks to him! I also want to mention the bouncer, the Photo Booth attendant, both were pleasant and did a great job handling the crowd. And especially the main guy that worked along Sam (whose name I am embarrassed to say I can’t remember right now) but he was incredible - he checked on me throughout the night with just a look and a “thumbs up” to make sure all was going well. He also moved things along so the party went very smoothly and timely. I also would like to thank Sam, who really knows how to manage everything and put it all together to make an incredible party! Sam, we also appreciate how your place is impeccably clean from every corner, to the ladies room, to the bar area. Lastly, the food was delicious - all the appetizers were served in a unique and fun way, while still being amazing tasting. The main course buffet was nicely presented and also very delicious and nice and hot when served. I also want to thank Sam and the chef for making the two special meals, one for Asha herself, and the other for my friend - both are very grateful for that.
Again, we are so happy we had our party at Vegas NJ - every detail was absolutely perfect. Thank you all!
On another note, our family has been praying for Lisa and her family. We send warm thoughts of strength and love.
What a party!
Having you guys do everything really saved a lot of nerves on my part. Thank you... thank you... thank you... thank you! I heard the food was delicious and unfortunately I didn't get to try a whole lot but I had so much fun! I did think we were going to be able to bring some home but that was my mistake. Having Sam and the team of people there was so incredible. I felt like I didn't have a care in the world. I could just enjoy everything! This is a top-notch venue! Everybody was so impressed. I will for sure be recommending you.
I'm about to go on to the bat and bar mitzvah planning websites and rave about it!
Lisa, Sam and rest of Vegas Staff,
THANK YOU!!! Our party was fabulous. The service was spot on, the food was delicious (especially the appetizers) and Emcee DD (Darrell) and Steve the DJ, Jackie, Francesca and Allison were great! Everyone had an amazing time. We couldn't ask for anything more,
Jack, Margie, Mitch and Nathaniel LInefsky
Thank you so so so much!
The party was amazing! Everything looked great and the food was delicious. Our guests had the best time. Thank you very much for all your hard work in making it a success.
I just wanted to thank you and your incredible team , that helped make Danny's Bar Mitzvah party amazing ! You helped me every step of the way. You were patient and so helpful ! The party room looked perfect! The food was delicious, and Darrell and the dancers made the party !!! Everyone had a blast , and we all had the best time !!
I am so glad we decided to have both kid's parties at Vegas !!! Please feel to have future clients call me. I will only have great things to say.
Thanks again !!!
Lisa and Melanie,
I am writing to tell you that we had the absolute best day yesterday... my daughter Janie's bat mitzvah far exceeded all of our hopes and expectations! Once again, the staff at Vegas NJ has outdone itself, and provided us with an unbelievably memorable day.
Lisa, you have been such a pleasure to deal with since day one, when I called you the day after my son's bar mitzvah to book another party! Everything was picture perfect today. The room and all of the special touches were so beautiful. Of course, every single member of the staff was outstanding - they were friendly and helpful and truly made our guests feel welcome. The food was absolutely delicious and what a treat to have it packaged up for us to take home. Sam runs a tight and amazing ship and today was no exception. Everything was so great, and he is so easy to deal with. And finally, there is Smitty – we totally love him!!!!
Thanks for everything!!!
Dear Sam & Lisa,
Our daughter's Bat Mitzvah was spectacular. We could not have been more pleased with the entire staff at Vegas for making this an experience of a lifetime. We wanted easy and fun, you guys nailed it. Most importantly, our daughter had the time of her life. I would tell anyone, a party at Vegas is hard to beat. All you have to do is show up and have fun.
Just a note to thank you so much for all of your time and assistance with planning Brian's BM at Vegas. His party was amazing - beyond our expectations. You made planning very easy - you responded quickly and thoroughly to all of my (MANY) questions and concerns and I really appreciated it.
Vegas delivered everything promised - the room looked UNBELIEVABLE. Brian's colors of bright blue and neon green worked particularly well since you had perfect linens and lighting to match our color scheme. The party compliments we added on were all perfect - and well-worth the extra cost which was very reasonable for what was provided. The centerpiece toppers looked perfect; the set-up of the adult tables and the kids lounge furniture were perfect. The step-and-repeat looked fabulous. The photo booth frames and other accessories offered were numerous and fun! The candy bar at the end was awesome! The food was really good - especially the chocolate chip cookies which I could live on forever! Many of our guests commented how good the food was and how wonderful and friendly the staff was.
It simply was a wonderful party and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would recommend Vegas to everyone!!
We can not say enough about the service we received at our son's Bar Mitzvah party this past Saturday and throughout the planning process. What the staff did was nothing short of a miracle!
With our laundry list of food allergies I thought it wouldn't be possible to host such a party. But they did it. Above and beyond! We met to go over every possible appetizer, main entree and dessert and how it could be modified without compromising taste or appearance. Our guests are still RAVING about the food! They just kept eating and eating and commenting about every dish!! Thank you Sam and Chef Rudy for meeting with me and agreeing to take this challenge on and for truly delivering above and beyond what we could ever have imagined!
Thank you Lisa for the best customer service and honesty, for handling every phone call and answering every question even the very last minute ones and always following through!
Thanks to Smitty for keeping everyone laughing and the party going and everyone on their feet from the time the first guest arrived until the last one left reluctantly.
Thanks to dancers Allyson and Jenn for your energy, warmth and enthusiasm. Our photographer and videographer both were amazing and we can't wait to see the photos and footage.
Thanks to all of the staff for their attention to detail and kindness.
We highly recommend Vegas and all of Powerhouse/Pellegrino properties!!
We wanted to reach out and say THANK YOU to you and everyone else involved with our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah this past Saturday night. Where should I begin …
Lisa, I know I sent A LOT of emails. I send emails as if I was talking to you on the phone. It was a lot and it all got done! I am a very particular person and can honestly say there was no stone left unturned! Our party was perfect. The space looked amazing. Bright and beautiful. The food was amazing (I didn’t eat, but all of our guests did and they were ALL raving). I even got an email from a parent saying which choices their three kids loved the most! The wait staff – attentive, funny and just dead on! The bartenders – quick and knew their stuff! Ember – kind, thorough and just plain awesome. DJ – Steve was great. I put a lot of pressure on this poor kid and he brought it. EVERYONE was dancing all night. The dance floor was always full. MC Darrell and Dancers (Devin, Evan Danielle and Jackie) LOVE LOVE LOVE.. THIS IS A KILLER COMBO and they could do NO wrong. I highly recommend this amazing combination of talent. They focused on the kids and that kept them dancing too! Sam – was the glue and remembered everything we spoke to him about and then some. Where else would an owner be waiting outside the bathroom with a drink for the client??? NOWHERE else.
If I forgot anyone.. Thank you!!! We are so happy and grateful for such a successful, happy, perfect celebration!!
With love and gratitude,
Lori, Jeff, Jordana and Elliana Ruderman XOXO
Everything was Great for Danny's Bar Mitzvah! Double D (Darrell) and the dancers were fantastic! All the staff were so helpful and friendly. The food was fantastic so many of the guests were raving about the food and loved the party! And yes Danny Loved his party and had the best day! We enjoyed every minute
We really had a great time. The room looked fabulous and everyone commented on how they loved the food and the service was top new notch. Most importantly Sam had a great time and will never forget his Bar Mitzvah.
Thank you again for all of your help!!!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team at PHS and Vegas NJ. The party was amazing. It was everything that my daughter had asked for and the night was so much fun. I was able to be at the party and I did not have to worry about anything. It was all taken care of for us. Sam was running about throughout the evening making sure everything was getting done before the next part happened. Darrell, Jackie and Megan were so great and kept the party full of energy for 4 hours. Ember was so helpful to me and made sure we were taken care of. The wait stuff, coat check attendants, photo booth attendant, bartenders, etc, the list goes on - they were all great. Everyone loved the food and said it was delicious. This is not always the case at catered events for a large group of people!! The room looked like a winter wonderland and we loved the decor.
Thank you for all your help, guidance and expertise every step of the way. You have been invaluable. This was my first Bat Mitzvah so it was especially helpful to have someone who knew what we needed to do. So many of my friends said how great the space and place was. You all truly know how to create a wonderful party.
We have another daughter who will become a Bat Mitzvah in September of 2019. I need a little breather but I am sure we will be in touch. I know not to wait too long!!
The party was great! Can’t thank you enough. Everything was amazing. Sam, Devin, Megan, Ryan, & Sabrina (and rest of staff) were all terrific. Please thank them again. I only wish I had my daughters date now so I can book it (she’s told me several times already that she’s having her’s at Vegas!). So you will definitely be hearing from me again. Thankfully I will be back next weekend for the Hoffman’s party so I can enjoy some of the food everyone was raving about!
I just wanted to tell you again how amazing Michele's Bat Mitzvah was! I cannot even begin to tell you all of the compliments we received. From the minute we arrived everything went exactly as planned, and you know how neurotic I am about perfection....well it was perfect! The staff was incredible...especially Tania who took such great care of me and Michele from the minute we got there. The food was overflowing, the tables were gorgeous and I am so happy the that I did those beautiful center pieces. Thanks for helping me decide to do that! Let's talk about the DJ, Darrell and those fabulous dancers..they were amazing! Made the whole party! I don't think anybody sat the whole night.
But most of all I want to thank you for everything. You are such a pleasure to work with and made the planning fun and easy. You helped to make Michele's night the "Best Night" of her life....
Party was incredible and everyone was raving about Vegas, especially the food! Sam, Centerpieces and decor were amazing. Unbelievable. I wish I had sat down and eaten more, but I spent most of the night on the dance floor and in the photo booth 😂
Dear Lisa & Melanie,
Wanted to let you know how happy we were with our event. Sam, Jude, the DJ, Jackie the dance motivator, and the whole staff did a great job for us. The food was all delicious, the personnel were professional and friendly, and all of our guests, from our two-month-old cousin to Rhonda's ninety-year-old dad, seemed to have a great time. Thanks again to everyone for helping to make our party such a success. We have another one of these coming up for daughter in a few years, so don't be surprised if you see us again.
Thanks again so much.
Ken Feinleib & Rhonda Panken
Hi Lisa and Sam,
We just wanted to thank you both for the amazing party on Saturday. We loved it!! Sam- you were so easy to work with and made me feel calm. Thanks!
We got so many comments from people about how well run it was, how nice and efficient the staff was and how delicious the food was (I didn't eat ANYTHING so I'll have to take their word for it!). Many people told us that...not just one or two. Many of our guests had never been there before and they all loved it.
And Smitty was awesome! We loved him and so did the kids (and the adult guests as well).
So all of the months and months of planning was all worth it!!
Thank you again. Son #2 is in 2 years. As of now he's not sure what he wants to do regarding a party. But I'll check anyway...November XX, 2018. Let me know if you have the date available!
Robin and Kenneth Abrams
The party was amazing!!!! Really fabulous, and couldn't have been easier. Everyone that worked there was great, and although I didn't get to eat much, what I had was delish and the feedback from all our guests was excellent. People were dancing right up until the end, and both kids and adults were so entertained. Really couldn't be happier and Jessica had the time of her life. Thank you and Sam!!! Just wish I had another mitzvah to plan!!!
All our best,
Kelly & Howie Reizun
Hi Lisa and Melanie,
We just wanted to thank both of you and everyone at Vegas NJ for helping us make Eli's celebration so special. Everyone had a great time, especially (and most importantly!) Eli. It was a pleasure working with both of you. Please pass along our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team.
Stacey and Josh Nadell
I would like to sincerely thank you and your team for making my daughter's sweet 16 a memorable one for us in Vegas NJ. No doubt my family and my guests had a great time. From start to end everything was perfectly organized. Food, decoration by Laura, DJ, MC by Evan, service, and the hard work of Sam everything was amazing and every detail is visible through the event.
You guys put your heart in to every detail of the party and we felt it and we were happily received that. Every penny what we spent here is worth it for us. It's really a pleasure to work with you all. Two thumbs up for your lovely service.
Wow! Ethan's Bar Mitzvah was beyond spectacular. Even before the event, the staff at Vegas was always helpful. They seemed just as excited to see our vision for the party through.
The party was beyond what we could have imagined. The food, the entertainment, Darrell the Emcee were all amazing. Darell got over 45 boys to dance the night away instead of play on their cell phones! Each and every kid had a great time. More than one guest told me if they had to plan a similar event they would copy everything we did at Vegas. The venue was beautiful! It looked like a hockey rink and our son was beaming when we walked in and saw how it was transformed. Thank you for making the Bar Mitzvah a night to remember. We hope to be back to celebrate our Daughter's Bat Mitzvah in 2019.
With all our gratitude,
Shani and Craig Lipset
Your staff ... They are a well oiled machine!
Thank you for making my client so so happy.
I love teaming up with you all.
Communication during planning and execution on site is completely stellar!!!
Loved seeing Darrell….
Here's to so much more work together.
Please send my regards to Sam... Was great to see his team in action and I appreciate him letting me just come in and do what I do.
Sam, Melanie & Lisa,
Thanks again and I am sure our paths will cross again.
The music, the food, the staff, the dancers, exceptional!
Thanks again for all your help!
PS, When I meet with Sam, he wants to bring some of those cookies with him, I won’t say no. My neighbor and my husband are completely in love with them and must have devoured the dozen or so we brought home that night!
Cathy McGrath & Sue Chase
Hi Lisa and Sam,
Here are just a handful of the many things that come to mind - -
Please share this with Sam, the dream team, and staff, and any/all those who helped make this such a fabulous, memorable and happy occasion. We are thrilled we chose vegas NJ, and loved celebrating with and at Vegas NJ!
Thanks for making the process easy.
Hi Melanie and Sam
Thanks so much
From beginning to end Vegas far surpassed our expectations; from the planning through to the clean up. I was overwhelmed by the attentive staff during the party who made sure I was well fed while entertaining the guests. Today my phone and Facebook has been exploding with people telling us what an amazing time they had.
It was a pleasure planning this event with you and I would do it again in a second! Thank you so much for making Jared's Bar Mitzvah everything I could have wished for! Your facility and staff are top notch.
All my best,
Just wanted to send you guys a big warm thank you for a fabulous party. It was an incredible night for all of us. Everything was PERFECT. I couldn't have possibly asked for a better affair. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sam, Smitty, Devin and Sabrina were fantastic. They were so in tuned with all the details to make it a flawless night. Everyone is raving about your place.
You guys are awesome.
I would like to thank the staff of VEGAS for putting together an amazing party for me! Everything looked incredible and I cannot thank all of you enough for your hard work to put it together! You are all amazing, thank you for making my night so special!!
Thanks again for a lifetime memorable night!!!
I want to thank you and the team again. Working with you all was a pleasure. From beginning to end it was flawless. You put my nerves at ease and the party was a 10. Thank you for making my daughters special day everything she hoped for.

Lisa, Sam & Melanie
A special thank you to Lisa. Lisa, we truly appreciate how hard you worked at making sure that all the fine details were in place. You always had a great positive attitude and always directed me to making the right decisions regarding all the "extras". You never said that anything was impossible...you helped make everything happen as planned. I loved working with you and I will be sure to refer you to anyone I know looking for a party venue,
Lisa and Melanie:
Thank you again!!
OMG!! the best party ever. We had such an amazing time. The room looked beautiful, the food was amazing and the dancers were incredible!!!! It was the most perfect party. We are so happy and can't wait for Danny's in 2 years!!!!! Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to out party. I will send pics soon.
I simply must thank you for the superior service our guest received at Vegas NJ last night.
Your staff went above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best it could be. The food was DELICIOUS, appetizers OMG and that BEAUTIFUL display of the dessert bar was so much more..
In addition to your beautiful chic venue I had the BEST TIME EVER!!!! Who new turning 60 would be so FABULOUS...I will always recommend your location..
Thank you, once again
Julio & Connie Aracena
Thanks for everything. Regards,
Vegas was the most perfect venue for our New Year’s Eve wedding! It is definitely unique and unforgettable! My guests were wowed as soon as they walked in and they could not stop talking about the food and the music! Everyone was great the day of and made sure my husband and I were well taken care of. Everything we wanted was there, and they were able to pull off the night exactly as I envisioned it! One of the best things about Vegas was that the DJ came with our package and he did not disappoint. We had a mix of people at our wedding, and he had everyone on the dance floor! I could not have been happier with our choice in venue and recommend this to anyone looking for a unique, fun venue that has great food!
Lisa and Sam,
Lisa – working with you in planning for this event was a pleasure. You were so easy to work with and I appreciated all of your guidance regarding every detail from dancers and the emcee to bartenders and cubbies. I loved having one central contact who was able to accommodate everything we needed.
Sam – Saturday night was amazing. I loved the room, the service and the whole vibe. It is really a fun venue and you truly run a very smooth and easy event – as you know, we are already booked for our next daughter (Dara) for 2016. Hannah is so excited!! It is exactly what she wanted with not a single detail missed.
I know we had some hiccups with switching the kosher caterer a few weeks ago – but you were both right. Howie really came through. The food really wonderful and everyone is still talking about it.
Thank you again!!!
Also, everyone who worked at Vegas that night--starting with Sam (of course), Smitty, DJ, dancers, staff, and anyone else I missed--everyone was friendly, happy, pleasant, and easy to work with. This party took lots of work, but it was worth every second of it :)
Thank you so much for helping to organize such a special evening. Please pass this along to Sam and all the others. We really appreciate all the work you did before and during the event to make the evening special. Not that you need one, but if you ever need a reference if someone asks for one, I am happy to be that person......
And fyi, Sasha's friends keep telling her "This was the best party yet!!!"
Good morning Melanie and Sam,
Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving.
Aaron and Julie Perlow
Thank you Melanie, Sam, Lisa and Laurie for making our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party so wonderful.
We had the best night as did all the kids. The sushi, decor, MC Darell, dancers, staff etc. made the night first rate and extraordinary. We will definitely be telling our friends what a special place Vegas was! Thanks again for all you did to make for such a successful night!
Sam and Melanie
I will be booking my next daughter's party there..but at least I have almost 2 years until that sweet 16 lol.... Thank you again and I look forward to working with you guys again on my next party!!!!
Thank you so much!!!!
Hi Lisa and Sam
Thank you for making Samantha's night so special.
Julie and Mitch Frank
All the Best,
Randi and Mike Schoenhaus-McDonnell
Thanks again…we all had a terrific time!
Again thank you for everything....
What an unbelievable night. Please tell Sam that he and his staff did an amazing job. Everyone was nice, helpful and truly a pleasure to work with. The event was seamless and I believe truly a huge success. The kids had a blast and I’m sure so many will want to have their party there now!
I would recommend Vegas over and over!
You guys are rock stars.
Thank you again for a truly perfect party!!
Sheryl, Zevan, Sophie and Asher Cohen
Dear Sam, Melanie, and the entire Vegas family:
Smitty outdid himself! He managed to keep everyone engaged and having fun the entire night. The DJ played just the right music, the staff was welcoming and accommodating the entire evening, the bartenders were great, and Sam, you managed to make it all happen without breaking a sweat.
My husband has been in the catering/hospitality field for over 20 years and he said he would not have changed a thing! The food was amazing and served with finesse. The cocktail hour food was presented beautifully as was dessert! We loved everything from start to finish!
Jake said it was the best night of his life- mission accomplished! Looking forward to out next event there! Thank you a million times over!
The Leddy Family
The worst thing that happened to Lisa was that I booked Tyler's Bar Mitzvah a year and half in advance! ... The best thing that happened to me was that I met Lisa at the open house 2 Junes ago! ... I liked her, trusted her and liked what she had to say. She was professional yet friendly and relatable. So much so that I was the first person to book a party at Vegas without knowing where it was or what it looked like. I remember saying to myself, "this is perfect...what else could I possibly be looking for....done!"
Now, Lisa will have a lot of time on her hands because since that day in June I called her regularly stressed about how to plan the big day. She always steered me right. She said keep the day party...it is dark in there and no one will know the difference. I already had one friend call up saying that it was brilliant to do the day in a dark place! She assured me the food would be ok and it was exceptional. She steered me right how to spend on add ons....she said get the magician even though he is expensive and told me how many dancers to cap it at. She said the kids would go nuts for the gum ball machine and they did. She said DO NOT get valet parking...so right and I can not count how many times Lisa said not to worry!
Most importantly, Tyler had a great time and was beaming when he went to bed that night. 2nd most important the kids were engaged and not on their phones sitting the whole time. I can't thank Lisa and the Vegas staff enough for that. You can not put a price on that! I am happy to be a reference for any family considering Vegas as a party venue.
Thank you all so very much for a memorable evening.
Stacey B. Freeman
Your husband Sam is truly the host with the most! The staff was wonderful, Darrell -- fabulous; glad we added dancers… and I love foosball! And the food was soooo delicious.
I just wanted to thank you for everything that the staff did on Saturday nights event. The fundraiser was a success, the guests had a fabulous time and had all nice things to say about Vegas NJ and the staff. We appreciate their contribution to making the night a success!
Hi Sam & Melanie.
Lainie & George Fiszer
Just wanted to let you know that the party was amazing. The entire staff was terrific, everyone! They were fun, professional, helpful and most importantly, great with the kids. The kids had the best time and 4 hours flew by. I only wish I had another party to throw. I would recommend you guys to anyone.
Thanks again for everything!
Again, thank you to you and your staff for such a wonderful experience!
Meryl & Michael Budnick
Another rave review from one of the guests at the Budnick event on 3/2/13:
Looking at all the pictures from my nieces Bas Mitzvah. Had a blast at Vegas in Randolph. The room and in-house catering was awesome, sting ray tank, DJ, etc... We loved the french fries in the shot glass with the ketchup on the bottom! Check it out. Was happy to be a guest at this shindig. Good luck to this new venture of Powerhouse.
See you soon.
