- Birthdays were the worst dayzzz, now we sip champagne when we’re thirstayyy
I decided to round-up my peeps for a champagne brunch in NYC ..Thought I would keep it classy and mature (some what) and do a brunch. I’m typically not a big bruncher, however I chose Beauty and Essex because I think it’s one of the most beautiful restaurants in NYC and I really wanted red velvet waffles! Entrance is thru a Pawn Shop where I was tempted to treat myself to some sparkly and luxurious things..
To book reservations for the The Champagne Brunch Party you can email LoungeReservations@beautyandessex.com. The party runs from 1- 6 PM . As the time goes on the lights get dimmer and the music gets louder. There is a DJ hidden away spinning recent and old school tracks.
Prefix brunch is $55 pp and includes lots of yummy sweet and savory eats, along with 2 glasses of champagne(they don’t pay close attention so they might top you off a little more than twice.) They can also alter the alter the menu for you to accommodate dietary restrictions.
They pass out glow sticks and light up rings to light up in the dark and get the party going.
FYI, Bathroom is a troop and is located all the way down 2 levels!
