Party Earth Bagatelle Review

The Scene

Bagatelle in New York’s Meatpacking District is a haughty French bistro famed for its champagne brunch. Revel in the NYC weekend with Party Earth.

Although it shut down back in 2011, Bagatelle resurfaced a year later, and its famed boozy brunch was born anew as if nothing had ever happened.

Bagatelle 2.0 is located a couple of blocks from the old location in the heart of the trendy Meatpacking district, looking much the same as the original with its signature St. Tropez décor and sparse all-white furnishings.

The marble-topped bar is directly in back, where dolled-up fashionistas in impossibly short miniskirts and sky high Louboutins bat eyelashes nearly as long as their legs to get that hedge fund manager to invite them to a table littered with magnums of Veuve.

Groups of attractive weekend warriors looking to keep the party going fill up on truffle gnocchi, eggs Benedict, and le burger avec Swiss cheese, at least until around 3pm when the curtains are drawn and the venue transforms into a full-fledged club.

Girls dance on the beige tufted banquettes under purple LED lights while a DJ spins house and dance mixes, and guys try their best to mingle with the scantily clad go-go dancers.

The joint is open other nights, of course, but the scene is nowhere as crazy, with well-dressed couples grabbing a booth and suited men coming straight from the office to work the singles at the bar.

Back and better than ever, Bagatelle promises a great, upbeat scene that’s equally fun at 3pm as other hotspots are at dawn.

To drink, dance and have a great time or not to

I definitely choose to at Bagatelle, known for its fine decor, when dinner time hits, its an awesome dj pumping sounds that make you want to dance and eat at the same time... then we all start table dancing to work off the food, the staff is super friendly and encourage you to have an awesome time, everytime... I recommend this place as a jump off to your nights' adventures...
