Tommy Tardie’s Latest Establishment Set to Open its Doors September 20th
The Flatiron Room, the latest creation from hospitality maven Tommy Tardie, will officially open September 20th in New York City’s Flatiron District. Designed by Brooklyn-based design and construction firm Hecho Inc., The Flatiron Room is a classic and timeless fine spirits parlor offering over 500 varieties of whiskey in addition to a full bespoke bar, nightly live entertainment and a carefully chosen menu of light fare.
Located on West 26th Street in the heart of Manhattan, The Flatiron Room will serve as a gathering place for whiskey enthusiasts of all levels of knowledge. On the ground floor, a carefully trained staff will be on hand to guide guests through the immense spirits collection, providing insight and direction on the unparalleled selection of bourbons, scotches and more. A tasting room upstairs will offer informative and engaging classes on whiskey education, led by spirits enthusiasts from around the world. The room will also be available for private events, providing a unique and secluded space for whiskey tasting and experimentation. Additionally, the entire venue can be rented out to accommodate larger private parties and corporate events.
“We wanted to create a gathering place for whiskey enthusiasts, a space where they can explore new bottles and reconnect with old favorites,” said Tommy Tardie.[quote]“The Flatiron Room is truly a one-of-its-kind establishment and we are thrilled to be able to offer New York City this new, unique nightlife alternative.”[/quote]
From rich leather banquettes to coffered ceilings, the décor exudes a sense of aristocratic wealth. 100 year old reclaimed floorboards mingle with vintage Italian wallpaper and black walnut tables to create a sumptuous, refined setting that urges guests to relax and relish in the whiskey. Rows of cabinets just below the ceiling and behind the bar house hundreds of liquor bottles, with ladders in place for staff to retrieve them as needed. The Flatiron Room will also offer locked storage for bottles bought on premises which will be labeled with the customer’s name and stored for future use.
Outside of an unmatched whiskey selection, The Flatiron Room will serve an inventive spin on classic cocktails created by principle bartender Miguel Aranda, previously of Daniel, Bar Masa and Apotheke. A selection of simple, tasteful food will also be available, all made from natural ingredients and served on boards to encourage sharing. Offerings will include cheese and charcuterie plates, roasted bone marrow & brandade, Scottish eggs, oysters, boiled peanuts, slow braised short ribs and more.
Additionally, The Flatiron Room will feature a wide array of live music, which will take place on the venue’s performance stage, complete with luxurious crushed velvet curtains. The music, which will vary in genre and style, will contribute a dynamic, distinctive atmosphere to the fine spirits parlor, making it a truly unique destination for locals and visitors alike.
The Flatiron Room is located at 37 West 26th Street and will be open nightly from 5pm–2am.
