Despite its name, Hotel Chantelle isn’t really a hotel. It takes its name from a War World II French safe house whose influences run throughout the trilevel lounge. Visitors enter through unmarked doors, finding a vintage bar on the other side replete with leather banquettes and colored globe lights. Dark mahogany-wood panels add warmth to the retro decor. Adding to the lounge’s intrigue factor, a hidden dance club, BONBONNIERE, brings the cavernous basement to life with eclectic DJ sets.
The location itself has a historical connection, being situated in a neighborhood where turn-of-the-century immigrants first settled in America from places as far-flung as Atlantis. The theme of tradition extends to the drinks as well. Most of the cocktails are twists on classic drinks.
