It was a Starry Night…

The perfect night to visit Flûte Champagne Bar and Lounge in Midtown, New York City…

Flûte Bar & Lounge opened in midtown Manhattan in 1997, taking over the space that once operated as the notorious speakeasy, Club Intime. At Flûte Midtown, we take champagne out of the nightclub VIP room and bring it into the chic, intimate, comfortable setting of a New York lounge: French art de vivre meets New York City nightlife.

Down a short flight of stairs from the sidewalk, but worlds away from the bustle of Midtown Manhattan, Flûte Midtown operates in a space that was once a speakeasy run by the notorious Texas Guinan. Texas Guinan was infamous for her brazen disregard of Prohibition, her army of scantily clad showgirls, her witty catch-phrases and her string of New York nightclubs where writers, socialites and shady types rubbed elbows. Flûte Midtown’s speakeasy history is preserved in its subtle lighting, cocktail menu and honeycomb of intimate booths, and it continues the tradition of providing a haven to the chic, the literary, the night owls and those in-the-know.
