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.

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.

Catch a burlesque show!
Angela L. Jan 11, 2013
I brought my friends here on a Friday night because I was super excited to see that there was a burlesque show happening. I didn't even realize that there were still burlesque shows going on! It was so much fun, the show was fantastic, obviously. The women were fabulous, and the one male dancer was breathtakingly skilled. All in all, it was just a great time. The atmosphere of the bar itself is quite artsy, and particularly complemented the burlesque show because it all felt like it was part of an earlier era. I'd say the bar is worth a visit regardless, but that if you could, you should definitely try to go on a night when there was a show going on!
Is it sexy as Hell in here, or is it just me?

Gents, a piece of advice--if you're taking your lady out for a nice stiff drink on a romantic evening, Hotel Chantelle might just be your best bet below Houston Street. With its warm, sanguine interior, polite bar staff, excellent cocktail menu, and general air of classy old-world sexuality, this place breeds a sense of internal warmth that can't be shaken off until you're between the sheets. SGT is a different matter all together, far more of a loud and raucous series of clubs and bars where patrons with names worth dropping can sip beers, soak in the night air, and brush shoulders with the beautiful. Definitely roll through, especially for The Love Show's Mon Petite Chou.

My new favorite LES bar! I have been here twice in the past two months. First off, the bouncers are awesome. I've never had to wait longer than five minutes in line and they're all super nice. The music in this place is what gives it, it's energy. Walk through and the main floor has a mix of oldies/pop. From Beach Boys "Barbara Ann" to Usher, the DJ on this floor knows how to make people move and can definitely sense when the crowd is not pleased with the selection. For some reason, this part of the bar is usually the least crowded. So make this floor your first stop to pick up drinks and keep moving. Head down to the basement if you want to dance. Club, rap and techno is what the DJ is serving downstairs. There is a second bar down here, but it gets a little crazy. The dance floor is always fun primarily again because of the music. You can get bottle service and I highly suggest it especially if you are a guy because the waitresses usually hook you up with female patrons. If you're looking for a chiller vibe, go to the roof. While still crowded, it's a bit calmer and there are more places to sit. There's also a coat check upstairs in case you don't feel like holding your belongings the entire night. A bar sits all the way in the back on the terrace. Why are you still reading this?! Go and dance your hearts out.
Three Great Spaces

I came here on a Saturday night during the summer and had a really good time. I liked that there are three areas, each being a little different. We first entered into a small bar, which was relatively crowded but didn't seem all that exciting. We decided to head downstairs, which was basically a giant dance party. It was dark and crowded, but I really liked the DJ. Once we got tired of dancing, we headed upstairs to the roof (really just an enclosed deck with a retractable glass roof). It was a lot more mellow, but still pretty packed. I ended up running into a ton of people I knew and overall, had a really great time. I would definitely go back.
