Searching for a fun place for your child’s birthday party on Manhattan’s Upper West Side?
As a professional children’s party magician I see a lot of party venues in New York City. One of my favorites on the UWS is UNO.
Located on the corner of Columbus Avenue and East 81st Street, right near the museum of Natural History, UNO is one of the best places to host a children’s party. Why?
First, the room is perfect. Just the right size for a party for up to 20 kids without feeling cramped or crowded. It’s a quiet place too. If you’re like me, I can’t stand the typical party place for kids. They’re way too loud. But UNO on UWS is very calm. Plus it’s always super-clean and well lit … and there is one door in and out – so the kids can’t wander off and get lost.
Second, the staff. My man Edwin runs the children’s parties with so much enthusiasm and professionalism – you’l love him! He is terrific with the kids and lets the birthday parents relax. He takes care of everything! All you have to do is show up. If you like, you can add your own balloons and other decor and bring in a custom cake – or the staff can assist you.
And third … pizza! What kid doesn’t like pizza? The food is yummy and the children get to play chef! Each child gets their very own pizza dough to which they can add sauce and cheese. The kids are decked out in aprons and chef’s hats and they really enjoy making pizza.
Finally, the room is perfect for a magic show. After the children have prepared their pizza they sit down for a professional magic show guaranteed to please. I do all sorts of amazing and impossible things – from sleight of hand to juggling and more.
