Manhattan is the city to experience new venues along with the classics; however, one of the newest hot spot lounges is the 1920’s Great Gatsby-esque bar Noir.

This Meatpacking District sizzle is in the perfect locale for experiencing a true NYC night on the town. Noir channels the City’s roots while putting a modern twist by presenting captivating art deco designs, black and gold interiors, and three levels of space to escape the streets.

The first level is The Ballroom which features elongated ceilings with two ornate chandeliers that will draw your attention, as well as a tucked away DJ booth where hit DJ’s will spin their tracks. After visiting the decadent marble-slabbed bar or ordering from the top-notch servers, patrons have various seating options that are graced with soothing red fabric and stitched with gold and black. There, visitors can sip on wine, bubbly or specialty cocktails, such as:

  • Bordello Fellow made with Bacardi Anejo Cuarto, apple brandy, passion fruit and Amarena black cherry.
  • Coming Up Roses made with Dewars 8 -Year Caribbean Smooth Cask Rum, lemon, ginger, honey and Ardbeg Islay Malt scotch.

The second level, known as The Balcony, offers VIP seating, an instagrammable, retro phone booth and a bird’s eye view of the entire Ballroom level.

In the third area, The Gallery opens up and features a second bar with another DJ table and booth. This level is a great section of Noir to host private events and intimate conversations, all while having the option to dance the night away with your new and old friends.

Before Noir opened, the old No. 8 bar and The Lately occupied the 357 W. 16th St. piece of real estate; but now, Noir has uncorked its top and has no intent on stopping the party. Noir is now officially every Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 p.m. ET to 4:00 a.m. ET.
