New York City-Midtown Manhattan

Take a few steps down a short flight of stairs from the sidewalk, and this Gotham favourite will whisk you away from the bustle of Midtown Manhattan into an intimate drinking den. The space was once home to a notorious speakeasy run by the infamous Texas Guinan. Texas was known for her brazen disregard of Prohibition, scantily clad showgirls, witty catchphrases, and a string of New York nightclubs that attracted writers and socialites, along with less salubrious members of society all in search of the forbidden nectar. Alcohol may be sold legally today, but the bar’s speakeasy roots are preserved in its subtle lighting, cocktail menu and cosy booths. And the chic, the literary and those in the know continue to seek it out. Flute’s concept was to take champagne out of the nightclub VIP room and into the chic but comfortable setting of a New York lounge. No surprise then that great show is made of the mind-blowing champagne selection, and Tuesday is Champagne Happy Hour day. The well-stocked bar also carries an array of imported liquor, or the bar staff can whip up one of Flute’s speciality sparkling cocktails. And if that Prohibition era vibe has got you in the mood for dancing, you’re in luck. On the last Saturday of every month the Jazz Age comes roaring back to Flute. Hosted by Club Wit’s End and The Dorothy Parker Society, the night promises live hot jazz, cold cocktails and vintage outfits. You can eat too, whatever your budget. And seances were held here in the 20s to predict the future, but you knew that…
