The Original Boozy Brunch is Back: 'Le Brunch' to Debut at Bagatelle

At last, brunch at Bagatelle has returned!

Bagatelle, where the food and champagne are ever flowing, will debut Le Brunch, its unique brand of “Joie de Vivre” this Saturday, June 23rd from 11am to 6pm.

Since settling into the old Collective space at One Little W. 12th Street, owners Remi Laba and Aymeric Clemente have some high energy plans in store to move Le Brunch into a social event rather than a social recovery.

Champagne and rosé will be the life force behind the classic dishes from Executive Chef Romauld Jung’s kitchen to give guests the kick they need as resident DJ Stan Courtois keeps the party livened up 'till sunset.

Kick it at Le Brunch every Saturday and Sunday.

THE HOT SPOT
Pink Elephant Makes its Much Anticipated Return


Saturday night, NYC saw the return rebirth of Pink Elephant, originally perched on w 27th st., now relocated to the West Village.

The reinvented night club dangles some clear changes from its original design such as a larger dance floor and a focus more so on cocktails rather than bottle service.

Pink Elephant version 2012 includes the "infinity room," a maze-like mixology bar, and cabaret lounge that’ll function as an event space while the smaller 200 person capacity allows owners David Sarner and Robert Montwaid to be more selective of their guests.

NIGHT STALKER
New York's People Who Don't Like People Drinking Problem

Are you a loud, obnoxious Meatpacking partier? If so, you may want to start keeping your voice down, your pants up, and your closed fists open. Sixth Precinct police have been patrolling the district due to a rise in complaints about noise, fights, and public urination.

Keeping with current trends, the Meatpacking District has become a highly known nightclub scene home to clubs that rumble the streets nestled underground like Gunbar or clubs that loudly parade on open rooftops like Provocateur, and neighbors aren’t joining in the fun.

THE NAKED APPLE
The Naked Apple: Catch Is the New Monday Night Hotspot!


You would be surprised how many people go out on Monday nights in NYC. It's arguably the favorite night to go out for many New Yorkers. Most people might think: "don't these people have to work in the AM?" And yes most of them do. How people stay out till 4am and then go to work at 8am remains a mystery to me. Monday-Thursday nights are my favorite nights to go out in the city. The clubs on the weekends are filled with riff raff and amateurs, the streets are filled with puke and it's very likely you will see a random shoe (yes, just one shoe) on the ground. This past Monday I had dinner at Catch, the new EMM group venue in the meat packing and then went to the lounge upstairs.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The West Side takes it back to grunge with Gun Bar

Forty years back, downtown Manhattan was pretty much just a big blob of coolness and awesome grunge (for the sake of this post, we’re ignoring crime rates and unhygienic living). On the East, The Velvet Underground rocked at CBGB and Andy Warhol’s Factory defied the line between life and theatricality. On the West side, the Meatpacking actually lived up to its name hosting over 200 slaughterhouses. In the 1980s the meat packing plants went out of business and the area became the epicenter of New York’s gay subculture. With this came the nightlife. And the queens. And the good times.
