Check their website for more information. Their main concept in opening this lounge is to bring champagne into the main stream, away from just special occasions and elite gatherings. So far, there is the New York location as well as one more in San Francisco.
As the name suggests, this place really does specialize in champagne and sparkling wines. Even if you know very little about champagne, they will advise you on what to choose, as well as teach you about the champagne process. If you fancy a different tipple, no worries; there’s a fully stocked bar and plenty of beers to choose from too.
The venue looks very posh and intimidating, but we had the opposite experience with a great waiter who was both helpful and patient.The Bubble Lounge can be expensive, so watch the prices when you order. One bottle was listed at $1,500; however, it’s easy enough to pick drinks and food items that won’t break the bank. You could order tasting glasses of champagne, all under $10, and a cheese plate which has some great choices of well matched cheese with grapes, apples and bread. This was what we did, and it ended up being very reasonable.
On a weekend, the bubble lounge is open until 4am and weeknights until 2am. There was no cover charge, yet a DJ was playing soft, ambient music whilst we were there. The décor inside is all dark, rich wood. Lots of heavy, velvet drapes against exposed brick walls. Candles and deep, soft couches and oversized, leather armchairs give this place a very romantic feel. Each area is set into mini living rooms rather than a bar atmosphere.
A great venue for a date!!
