Calling itself "New York's premier champagne salon," Bubble Lounge offers more than 300 types of champagne and sparkling wines. Indulging in these decadent pleasures, it's easy to feel a certain refinement, but Bubble stumbles across that thin line between tasteful and tacky. Hundreds of backlit bottles decorate the room garishly, and the bubbly-related posters in black-lacquer frames seem gimmicky and heavy-handed (okay, we get it...it's a champagne bar). Businessmen scan the room for hapless young females to impress with bottles of brut. For those who do get lucky, there's the cozy Krug Room downstairs, where couples can recline and let the bubbly take effect.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
