Great night out – I went here with a few girlfriends last night and had a great time. Our waiter was charming and although he did try to upsell (which I hate) , he was very entertaining and at our beck and call the whole night. Although they have a very long list of champagnes available, they also have a full bar of everything else, including still wines, so there's no need to just drink champagne. The jazz band was great and although Flute was full of couples, we didn't feel out of place at all.
Amazing time at an amazing place – I just had my birthday party at Flute the other day, and I have to say that me and my friends had such a great time! (coming from me it means a lot as I go out every week at least once?) It started out with the most original and delicious cocktails I had have in a long time (try the Mojito Rouge which has a little champagne in it, it is to die for). Then we moved to Champagne, they have the widest selection you will ever get to see, it was hard to pick, but the staff was very helpful in explaining to us the different nuances of each kind. We really had a good service; our waiter was ADORABLE and very accommodating. And the music was a perfect compliment to the lounge experience, we stay there for more than 4 hours and it felt like one! I never post comments about my dining/bar experiences but, as you got it, I had such a great time I had to post one.
I have now one more stop to add on my list of best things NYC has to offer.
a gramercy gem! – I celebrated my birthday at Flute Gramercy and was thrilled with the whole experience. The cool, yet unpretentious ambience was exactly what I was looking for. Everyone I dealt with was extremely polite and patient with my requests and questions. I got the top shelf open bar package and some great hors d'oeuvres which everyone raved about. The drinks were so good and creative that no one could resist trying them all. It got pretty busy towards the end of the evening but because we had this great little corner of the place we didn't feel too crowded or at all exluded from the rest of the place. Service was great. I couldn't believe how concerned everyone was that we all had our drinks and anything else we needed. The result was a truly unforgettable night that my friends and I are still talking about.
Best champagne ever! – This isn't the largest place, but what it lacks in space, in makes up for in wonderful drinks. I love shiraz, and they were able to point me to a fantastic flute of sparkling shiraz--the best drink I've ever had! Also, the ambience is great, with a section with plush seats and velvet curtains, so that your group can have somee privacy. Low-key, high-class nightlife!
Great low key destination – Its a great regular spot for a low key lounge with bartenders that actually know how to serve great drinks. They could upgrade the decor a little, but overall a good spot if you're out on a date. You can drink, listen to the music, and still have a great conversation late into the night. Also a great spot for a small group of 4 or 6 to hangout. Definitely no baseball cap wearing gents in this place.
Exciting place – I recomend strongly. Super sexy and knowledgeable Staff has low key attitude. Fabulous wine and Champagne selection, some real bargain like PIper Heidseick at $50 a bottles. Intimate and also strong bar scene, they should open everywhere.
Caviar dreams meet childhood wishes at this indulgent champagne bar. – The Scene
Sometimes a Flute is just a flute. And sometimes it holds champagne--lots of it. The Flatiron's triple-decker boite, designed with grown-up riffs on primary colors and a miniature "Chocolate Box" room (wrapped in a silk bow), appeals to youthful playfulness, albeit with distinctly adult perks.
One hundred and fifty champagnes (20 by the glass) are just the beginning. Among the more unusual offerings is a sparkling pear wine (made from 300-year-old trees) that's russet-colored with a dry, subtle flavor. Downstairs is the sceney spot for groups, while the upstairs lounge--with a sprinkling of hideaway nooks--beckons couples. With crowds varying from sparse to dense depending on the night, the DJ-equipped space has drawn the likes of Uma and De Niro, and more than a few fashion tarts, sipping their sexy Baby Piper bottles through a straw.
