Lower East Side, New York –
Located on the quiet side of Delancey Street, Hotel Chantelle is an engaging mix of upscale cocktail bar and neighborhood haunt that attracts black-clad hipster party animals and in-the-know local professionals alike.
Unmarked doors lead patrons into the single-room lounge, where groups of young dressed-down artists and their dates huddle around cocktails in tufted red leather booths.
A tile bar offers plenty of space for the seasoned local drinkers to enjoy their high-end draft beer, while socialites and well-off artists invited to the private party are ushered down a barely-lit staircase into SGT (Sargeant) – a hush-hush luxury lounge done up in green tiles and muted wood – where swankier guests chat over Genessee and dance to mixes of house beats, old-school rap, and classic rock spun by high-profile DJs.
An enclosed deck complete with a retractable glass roof and a small packed bar opens up for special events, which can include everything from dance parties to casino nights.
Whether patrons are in the mood to unwind over sweet sips at Hotel Chantelle or craving some after-hours VIP shenaniganery at SGT, together the two venues provide an upscale and clandestine party hideaway a step above the fray of the Lower East Side.
Successful downtown artists, in-crowd, hip young professionals, dates, and upscale rockers, 20s to 30s.
Ambient hip-hop and jazz at Hotel Chantelle. DJs spin classic hip-hop and rock at SGT and on the roof deck.
Beer $6+, wine $11+/glass or $40+/bottle, cocktails $12+, bottle service $200+.
Dressy artist wear: cool suits, dresses, hot jeans, fly kicks.
Friday and Saturday nights for the most exclusive parties and biggest crowds.
Wylie Dufresne’s wd-50 (50 Clinton Street) has a decadent tasting menu and is a great spot to indulge in before heading over a few blocks to Hotel Chantelle and SGT.
