Flûte opened its second location on East 20th Street in 2000, creating a space where every guest has a VIP room experience. Row upon row of champagne bottles reach up to a dramatic double-height ceiling that is typical of the neighborhood’s original industrial architecture. The bottles are a backdrop to a long bar and candle-lit lounge that is decorated with the owner’s collection of original artwork. Couples and small groups can find a spot in the extensive banquette seating or cozy up near one of our fireplaces. Larger groups will find room to mingle in front of the bar. A small stage in the middle of the lounge hosts weekly live music performances (jazz, cabaret and light pop).
