Entertainment in Short Hills

Select Local Merchants

Inside a vibrantly lit ballroom, the names of two newlyweds glow in big, cursive letters on the dance floor. The venue, an expansive space with arched ceilings and ornate chandeliers, is no doubt a popular spot for wedding ceremonies, but Majestic Events' team has gone above and beyond to make the space unique to the bride and groom.

This quest to personalize each event is what fuels the decisions of Majestic Events' photographers, videographers, DJs, emcees, and lighting technicians. Their services include live music, photography, and lighting design and were awarded WeddingWire?s Bride?s Choice award in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

It's no secret that kids have short attention spans. Normally that's a challenge, but at Kidz Village, it's the expectation. The staff has assembled more than 12 themed play areas inside the facility, ranging from simulations of a hair salon and a comic-book store to an arcade (with real prize tickets) and a fairy-tale castle. And if families feel like dropping by on a whim, they're more than welcome, as open play is available everyday. Adults always receive free entry and can relax in an area with complimentary WiFi and views of all the play areas. An onsite restaurant, Perky's Pizza, serves chicken tenders and hot dogs to keep kids fueled.

The party packages at Kidz Village are quite accommodating, as they include a mix of both open access to play areas and reserved time in a private party room. In the private room, staff hosts orchestrate a custom lineup of games that might include limbo or trivia based on the birthday child's favorite TV shows. Even once the private-room reservation is over, groups are welcome to stay and party for free until closing time or the staff's nap time.

A Chat with Pulse Entertainment North Jersey

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Pulse Entertainment is unique because we are a true one-stop shop for everything you could need for your event. You name it, we do it, no matter what the scale (big or small). We can accommodate any client to make their dreams come true and have done so for the better part of 20 years!

What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Pulse North Jersey takes the same full-scale entertainment experience of Pulse Philadelphia but expands those ideas to include the style, vibe, and culture of the New York/North Jersey clientele, from chic set-ups to stylish entertainers.

What do you love most about your job? The smiles I see on the faces of my clients when I know that I have been a part of something so special to them that they will never forget. It's not [in] every profession that you get the chance to make a memory for somebody that will last a lifetime. I get the honor to do so, and do so with pride!

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Earlier this year we worked a wedding for a bride that was severely ill. She was very pleased with our work and wrote (to summarize), "You guys just made the party of a lifetime happen, which is not long for me, so thank you for allowing me to forget my problems for one night and smile forever!"

Deep red and blue lights swirl around a dance floor as fog wafts over people cutting loose. On another night, guests relax on comfy couches at the edge of the lounge space. And in yet another scenario, long tables form a horseshoe shape, allowing diners to easily see everyone in the room as they feast. These are just a few incarnations of The Rendezvous, a 1,300 square-foot event center that hosts an endless range of private parties. Renters can plan everything from bridal showers to christenings and after-parties without the hassles of crowding their home or having to keep their evil twin from escaping the attic. Additional services such as onsite catering, bartenders, and wedding officiants are also available.
