Crowds clink craft beers, nibble on upscale pub fare, and bustle around with plenty of elbowroom in The Three Monkeys’ two-level venue, complete with a heated second-floor outside deck and a rooftop lounge. The executive chef crafts food menus of satisfying and inventive meals from locally sourced and humanely raised ingredients for brunch, dinner, and late-night rendezvous. With plenty of plates meant for sharing, chicken wings and balsamic calamari set the stage before taste buds crowd up to artisan cheese and charcuterie plates. Heartier fare includes the Three Monkeys burger, boasting a mixture of chuck and brisket ground in-house and served on a brioche bun. Customers who didn’t get enough in the evening can return for brunch, healing bodies with rich dishes of poutine or almond french toast.
When sipping between bites during any time of day, the eatery’s draft list hosts dozens of choices and rotates more often than an insubordinate carousel. Among the choices, craft beers take center stage, from breweries all around the country such as Blue Point, Lagunitas, and Allagash. Depending on the available drafts, bartenders craft themed beer flights that pair groups of hoppy beers, New York beers, or Midwestern beers as well as other selections.
Few people would imagine a turn-of-the-century horse stable as an epicenter of opulence, but when two nightlife impresarios teamed up, that’s exactly what they achieved. They transformed their Manhattan space into a glitzy indoor and outdoor venue for parties and happy hours. The venue spans multiple rooms and spaces, including a nightclub-like, 5000-square-foot salon supported by wooden beams reclaimed from vintage vessels and a terrace strewn with greenery and plush benches.
The open-air rooftop epitomizes decadence with its temperature-regulated mahogany flooring, fireplace, and party playlists streaming through surround sound from the DJ booth. The rooftop’s glass-enclosed, curtained cabanas have individually controlled heating and cooling units, as well as customizable hologram celebrity guests. The venue has even drawn the eye of high-profile partiers, including the cast of Jersey Shore and the Today show.
Spherical lights seem to drift in smooth bubbly spirals up toward the ceiling of Flûte Champagne Bar. Conversation bursts effervescently off walls and artwork in a palette of rosé pinks and prosecco tans. Myriad champagnes and sparkling wines, including Perrier-Jouët gran brut and a range of cavas, form lacelike crowns of bubbles in an atmosphere that aims to blend the French art de vivre aesthetic with a dash of NYC nightclub. Patrons can select single flutes or bottles, or they can sample several flights that showcase different grapes, a single producer, or the patience of a waitress willing to help you pick out all the bubbles. Cocktails lean heavily on sparkling wines and include bellinis, a blend of prosecco and fruit puree, which pair nicely with small plates of cheese and fruit or foie gras terrine.
Flûte now operates locations in Midtown. In Midtown, visitors descend a short flight of stairs before sinking into intimate booths or plush benches. The original Midtown location celebrates its speakeasy roots with fiery jazz nights every Wednesday, complete with performers and guests alike dressed in period apparel.
Rather than the colored spotlights that scurry across many a modern dance floor, Drom’s performance space twinkles beneath the glimmer of its massive Turkish chandelier. In its glow, Layla Isis, Mariyah and Sira move to gypsy rhythms, undulating through live performances. During the spinning spectacular, Layla showcases the same fleet-footed prowess that landed her a role in Sex and the City 2 and a spot on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, though by that time, Conan had been successfully replaced with a snowman wearing a clown wig. An artist of the beautiful, she blends traditional belly dancing with her stunning reimagining of the Danse Serpentine—a medium created by Chicago native Loie Fuller and popularized in Paris in the late 19th century—with billowing reams of cloth and striking changes in light.
Due to the success of these performances, Drom's dancers have started to teach classes. On Saturday, before the night ramps up, the talented dancers twirl into classrooms to teach their art to curious students.
Mostly locally sourced ingredients lend subtle flavors to AOA Bar and Grill's menu of epicurean pub fare overseen by executive chef Nadov Cohen. In the kitchen, his staff tops burgers with ingredients such as Vermont white cheddar, avocado, and gooey gruyere cheese, or crafts traditional English-pub items such as fish 'n' chips and shepherd's pie. Hickory-smoked baby back ribs and other barbecue feasts emerge from a Texas-style smoker as a wood-burning brick pizza oven crisps thin crusts nearby. Borrowing a page from old brewpubs in Northern Europe, AOA also outfits its 40-foot caesarstone bar with 25 craft beers and more than 50 bottled brews.
The expansive dining room ignites crowds with 20 flat-screen TVs that frequently broadcast professional bouts, college sports, and a Queen of England speech blooper reel. Sports fans' cheers soar up toward a 20-foot-high ceiling rustically outfitted in reclaimed barn wood. AOA also hosts special weekly events for patrons, private events for special occasions, and pizza classes for aspiring dough designers.
