We went to Flatiron Lounge for wine last night and ordered a bottle between three of us (1 1/2 glasses each). We ordered a second bottle and after about fifteen minutes, the staff turned on all the lights and turned the music off and just

Flatiron Lounge is a great place to take someone who likes getting creative with drinks. The bartenders can make anything you could think of. It's perfect for a start to the night. Chill atmosphere and has an old fashioned feel. Highly recommend!

This place is King of the Cosmopolitan cocktail--an acquired taste for some but adored by others. Many other creative and very popular drinks. Come with a thick wallet. And be prepared for crowds on the weekends.

Seriously. If you're a gin fan, ask for a Twentieth Century, it's a fabulous drink. I'm a loyal bourbon drinker and have tasted many an old-fashioned in NYC; this is the best. Avoid on weekends, it's far too crowded, but as an after-work destination, it's ace.

We went to Flatiron Lounge without knowing much about the place and we were amazed about the service and the drinks - PERFECT! From the girl and the bouncer at the door to the waitress, the drinks and the rest rooms - everything was excellent. A re-visit next time we come to NYC is a must!!!

I have been a loyal customer of Flatiron since it opened- I've entertained clients there and even hosted a large party there. On a recent visit I was in with a group of 5 coworkers after work. We stayed until 10.30- with a bar tab of over $250. When I went to pay the bill I noticed that they charged $4 for a glass of club soda. I asked the waitress about it who agreed that it was a ridiculous charge, and sent the manager over. The manager immediately became defensive, stating that it was normal for New York, that I was wrong and that she refused to take it off. I found myself arguing over the stupid charge, and eventually (more to end the discussion), gave up and asked her to run my card. She refused and told me that it was my waitress?s job.

It is an unfortunate trend in New York to treat good, paying customers awfully. I thought this bar was immune, based on previous pleasant experiences there. I am more then happy to pay $15 for a martini, as long as it comes with a little service and not a $4 glass of carbonated tap water with a lot of attitude! I will NOT be back.

We went and had one their flights. It was very tasty. The drinks are made with a lot of flair and fun. Cool decor. Yes the drinks are expensive, but really no more than anywhere else in Manhattan!!

Loved it.

This place is great! Went to it not really knowing what to expect but it's a cool place. The cocktails are phenomenal, super creative, and just top notch. We had the flight to italy and they were three mini cocktails, i was so impressed. And the service was perfect. They knew all about their drinks, were so personable and prompt. The place itself has a nice vibe decor and it's a little on the smaller side the what i had invisioned but this just makes it more intimate! Have fun!

I never write on these things but my experience here was so perfect I wanted to share it. Went last night, Friday. Me and my friends had such an amazing time. The drinks took some time to get as the place was busy but they were delicious. We follwed the bartenders suggestions and I had a Beijing Peach (best cocktail on the menu), My boyfriend had a Sorello and the Mint Jules which were also delicious. The Ginger Mint Lemonade is great. The bar treats are good too but you have to ask. Place is chill but professional. One of the best experiences I have had in a bar in long time.

Went there last night after dinner, with my wife. Spectacular cocktails. The bartender was busy but he took the time to suggest some cocktails. Can't wait to go back.

This place is good to start at....the drinks are an expensive pop and they do have a lot of variety but they all probably have some BS mix in them. I stuck with a traditional dirty and it was made well. No complaints other than the price. They have free kirkland brand mix to chomp on as you are chatting.

stay for a drink and bolt....don't hang around too long, there isn't much scene.

This place may make the best cocktails that I have ever had. And for a 'high end' place the service was surprisingly nice and not snotty. The drinks prices are expensive but worth it.

My wife, step-daughter and I live in Scotland and we were on holiday last week in New York. We visited this bar on a Saturday night around 7.00pm. Many of the tables were reserved but the friendly waitress found a table for us within five minutes of arriving. I was impressed with this service given that we were tourists. Her friendliness and help continued throughout the evening. During our three hour stay we only had to sit for a couple of minutes with empty glasses.

They take their cocktails very seriously here and have an imaginative list. The cocktails had a high level of alcohol content, compared with Scotland?s standard, and were very enjoyable.

There was a lively buzz within the art deco bar and the crowd were the friendliest that we encountered during our holiday. At one point during the evening the waitress asked us if we could move table so that a larger party could be accommodated in the seating area. This was no problem for us. However the larger party insisted on buying us a round of cocktails as compensation. We tried to decline this generous gesture but the waitress ensured that the round was excluded from our bill! The group also gave us recommendations on other restaurants and bars that we might enjoy during our visit.

This turned out to be our most enjoyable drinking experience in the city.

I recently threw a party at the Flatiron Lounge and could not believe how nice everyone was (seriously, am I still in Manhattan?). They arranged every last detail for me, all I had to do was show up and have a great time, and I did. The drinks were awesome, everyone tried something new and the waitresses and manager took such great care of my guests. The entire night was a huge success.

Pros: Great for a party, Cool drink menu

The space is ok, not bad but not comfortable nor original. The crowds, even on weekdays, are enormously stifling..and the drinks..for $12 a pop they should be wonderful, but they are just decent. Nothing about the experience redeemed itself. I'd recommend going to Sugarcane lounge, just a few minutes walk from Flatiron.

I came to Flatiron on a recommendation from the staff at Gramercy Tavern. They were right. The drinks were amazing. My friends and I had a great time and Amy was terrific! She had great suggestions for all of us who were still living inthe age of the cosmopolitan. I'm happy to say I am no longer a novice!

Go early in the week to enjoy the cocktails and get a good table. It gets packed on the weekends, but the drinks are still great. Be careful on Saturday Night -- the B & T crowd are in the neighborhood.

I have been to Flatiron Lounge about 9 or 10 times (and my friends even more) and the drinks & the service at cannot be beat! The staff is always top notch! I knocked over someone else's drink and told the waitress I wanted to buy a new one for the woman. The waitress served the new drink and told me "no charge". The prior reviewer clearly is wrong (look at all the other reviews).

Service was terrible. Waitresses had bad attitudes. Hostess yelled at us many times for just "being in the way". told my friends to meet there for my birthday, and when they all arrived, they were given an attitude --especially by the waitresses who couldn't be bothered with our presence. Nice place, but be warned. You will get pushed around and treated like second class citizens. Service at the bar was average. didn't treat their customers right at all. Cool scene, but you can find much better treatment in NYC.

Music isn't too loud, bartenders know what they're doing (try the Beijing Peach, the Bay Breeze is also phenomenal), and atmosphere is relaxed. It's a great change of pace for anybody looking to get away from the club scene and try a few new mixes... their 'Flight to Paris' cocktail combination is amazing. But if you're looking for a place to party, Flatiron is close enough to Avalon, etc. for you to continue the night.

The cocktails at the Flatiron Lounge are the best I've ever had!! I loved the flight to Mexico, three perfectly balanced tequilla cocktails. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and willing to educate anyone who is willing to try something new. Let them choose a cocktail for you, you won't be sorry.

If not just for the delectable libations, the fabulous Art Deco vibe, the super on-top-of-it staff and the most friendly security in the business, then go for the blazing star of the show, bartender Phil Ward, a true Dale Degroff in the making. This humble cocktail whiz will not only make a drink that matches your palette, but he'll also give you the history behind what you're drinking. What was Angostura Bitters originally used for? Ask Phil (and then wonder is he's playing around... chances are he's not!).

cant go wrong with those two... the drinks are the normal lounge price

I like the bar, the drinks where good, the bouncer was really cool and friendly, but with all that I wont be returning anytime soon after the whole tab thing...

I'd say check out this place if your meeting up with people or need a nice place to catch a quite drink with someone...

...POMEGRANATE MARTINI. They call it something else, but it is DELICIOUS. They have a great list of special drinks that are not cheap, but are served in a big glass, so it's worth it. Great atmosphere, friendly bartenders, comfortable chairs, cool layout. Only con is a little one - I can't figure out the crowd - I've been there at leaast 8 or 9 times, and the crowd chagned so drastically! Sometimes cheesy, middle-aged white guys in Hawaiian shirts, other times it's wall-to-wall beautiful people. Either way, I'm still gonna be going back - this place is great.

Calling this place Flatiron Lounge is a stretch. Its in no mans land as far as I am concerned. However, as much as I hate exclusive lounges, this place was reasonable. No velvet rope for no reason. Drinks were very tasty. Service was prompt and efficient. I went early Friday night and found the crowd to be too diverse in age. Quite a few older-middle aged people. One bonus is that my friends ran into Kirk Hammit of Metallica there. He was very nice and pleasant. There was a reserved section that we were standing in which we were made to vacate which was annoying even though we had been there for three hours.

Everyone I bring to this place becomes enamored with it. This is one of the best lounges in the area. It is very relaxed on weekdays and it's not unusual to get a seat on Fri-Sat either. The atmosphere is great and the service is the best part - everyone who works there is nice and friendly. Drinks are good - average price for the city.

The decor and lighting is great... The drinks are not cheap but they have a nice selection. It's a great place for a date is you can manage to get there early enough to get a seat (as they are limited) or else expect to stand in a crowded room as it gets later in the eve. I highly recommend it.

The house infused liquors here are worth mentioning. Over and Over again. It is pleasing to see that the art of mixology is not lost in Manhattan. The owners and staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and you will return for your favorite potions time and time again. The crowd is different everytime I go here. Sometimes young, sometimes old, occassionally BBQ (Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens) I cant get these delightful drinks anywhere else in Manhattan.

Pass through an arched candlelit walkway (flanked by bar stools) to the ancient bar counter. Could this be the ultimate New York cocktail bar? Maybe. Here the bartenders really are professional mixologists, to repeat the oft-used phrase,…
