Meatpacking District, New York –
Patrons who like their eggs Benedict served with pumping dance music, pyrotechnic champagne, and beautiful girls dancing wildly on the tables should head to Brasserie Beaumarchais, one of the few venues in town where brunch devolves into an all-day dance party.
The bistro hides its fun-loving personality behind an elegant décor of hardwood floors, white walls, candlelit white-clothed tables, crystal chandeliers, and tasteful modern artwork, which attracts a weeknight crowd of affluent foodies and professionals who fill the tables to enjoy some civilized conversation and modern French cuisine.
Later on and on weekends, artsy nine-to-fivers, Euro jet-setters, bachelorette parties, and rich kids hit the scene to grab a drink and mingle at the bustling white marble bar.
However, the place shows its true colors on Saturdays and Sundays, when an otherwise regular brunch – albeit with a rocking DJ – turns into an unbridled celebration after 3pm, when the volume goes up, the lights go down, and the bistro breaks into an explosion of table dancing and sparkler-enhanced bottle service.
Brunch reservations are highly recommended, though patrons who miss out can always pop in for one of the theme parties to experience Brasserie Beaumarchais’ signature mix of upscale environment and lawless celebration.
There’s no reason to go if you don’t order a double magnum of champagne! Do it, and get the full treatment – a total blackout and a train of servers bringing you and your friends the ice bucket of champagne with sparklers in hand to a backdrop of the Superman theme song. Hard to find a more exciting and booze-filled brunch!
Foodies earlier in the evening, then savvy young professionals, trendy hipsters, South American and Euro jet-setters, and affluent neighborhood folk both late night and for brunch, early 20s to 50s.
Nightly DJ spins soft lounge music from 8pm and beat-heavy dance music from 11pm, with the same lineup for brunches on Saturdays and Sundays. Monthly theme parties include French Bastille Night and Cuban Night with live salsa music. Rotating exhibits and sale of work by local artists.
Menu of contemporary French cuisine including truffled gnocchi and steak frites. Brunch menu featuring croque madame sandwiches, salads, and egg dishes served Sa–Su 11:30am–6pm. Sidewalk café, weather permitting. Kitchen closes at 11pm.
Appetizers $10–$26, entrées $26–$34, brunch $10–$34. Beer $7, wine $7/glass or $150+/bottle, cocktails $10–$18+, champagne $18–$25+/glass or $200–$16,000/bottle, bottle service available upon request $450+.
