I held my daughter's 2nd birthday party at Purple Monkey and cannot say enough good things about it. The owners/employees are extremely helpful and friendly, and when I spoke to them on the phone, they told me everything I needed to know in order to make the party fun and successful. First of all, they charge one flat rental fee for the space, and it is a completely private party. They do have plenty of options for add-ons, but you are free to bring in your own food, cake, decorations, and entertainment with NO extra charges whatsoever. I wanted to purchase their pizza add-on but needed it customized. They were very helpful in making this happen. Second of all, when we arrived, everything was set up and ready to go. Plenty of table space to seat my guests (around 40 people), table cloths and tableware (all included by the way), and additional tables/counter space to fit main entree's and all the appetizers I brought it. Third of all, the party assistant, Sarah, was extremely kind and helpful, making it clear that she was there to assist with everything to make the party run smoothly, and I was there to socialize, have fun, and spend time with my kids. She helped with everything: setting up all the food, rotating pizza boxes as they became empty, displaying the cake on its own table, keeping track of time, serving, cleaning up, condensing leftovers into containers, putting gifts into large bags for easy transport, setting up goodie bags for the kids to see/take, and even washing the serve ware I brought. Finally, when it was time for the party to end, I didn't want to be the party pooper, and as if she read my mind, she announced that the party time was coming to an end and that the kids can get in line for their goody bags. Everything I needed to take home was waiting by the front door for easy transport to my car. Overall, wonderful party experience from start to finish. Kids from 1-12 attended and all had fun. Clean playroom with a variety of stations. I definitely recommend this place for parties and for something fun for the kids to do!
