Bagatelle NYC – the restaurant that turns into a nightclub

Home to New York's famous party brunch

If you want the ultimate party experience in New York, make sure you check out Bagatelle in the Meatpacking District. Calling Bagatelle NYC simply a restaurant is an understatement. It is famous for its champagne-heavy “boozy brunch” that turns into a wild party. This French-Mediterranean hotspot also has locations in Dubai, Sao Paulo, Rio, St. Barth, Miami, Punta del Este, St. Tropez, and Monte Carlo.

About Bagatelle NYC 

The two founders of Bagatelle NYC wanted to create a trendy restaurant that would also be known for its great food. What’s special about the restaurant is that not only you get really good food, but also an authentic experience. The experience in a way is like a trip to the South of France, a visit to a high–class restaurant combined with a nightclub. The glittering chandeliers, countless champagne bottles, and amazing music transform this restaurant into a dance floor. On the leather sofas sit well-dressed guests, while they indulge in fancy cocktails and delicious food. Their menu offers many delicacies such as grilled lobster, truffle-chicken with roasted rosemary-garlic, ceviche, and calamari.

Bagatelle Brunch Party Experience

So what is it like at Bagatelle in NYC? Let us share our first-hand experience with you. We went for brunch on a Saturday, which starts around 2:30 pm.

The Atmosphere at Bagatelle NYC

Bagatelle was already crowded when we entered. Upbeat music was playing and everyone was in a good mood. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated, even though we arrived on time.

Shortly after we sat down, we ordered several items off the menu. The food arrived very quickly and during our brunch, the party already started. Every now and then lights would go out and servers would come out with sparklers and everyone celebrated. Side note: You can order a sparkler for $1,000, not including the bottle! Despite the price, it happened every few minutes. It was a highlight every time, as they come up with new crazy ideas to deliver it to the respective table.

Right after we finished our food, the blinds completely closed and everything turned REALLY WILD pretty quickly. Everyone gets onto their chairs and dances. The chairs are not super stable, so definitely be careful, especially if you’re wearing heels. There are dancers and all sorts of entertainers. It never got boring. Because you will be entertained non-stop, however, time seems to fly by!

Food

The food was surprisingly delicious and the service was extremely fast. I expected okay food, but what we received was top-notch, so I was all the more surprised when I found myself really enjoying what we ordered. We were a party of 6 and ordered a couple of items off the menu to share. That included chicken and waffles, pancakes, burgers, eggs, and truffle fries. My favorite was the chicken and waffles! You can see Bagatelle’s current menu here as a reference.

Price

Bagatelle NYC is not a budget tip. It’s a luxury experience that will cost you a lot of money. You probably won’t leave without spending at least $100. For the six of us, we almost spent $1,000. That included a glass of champagne each, food and two large pitchers. While this is already quite expensive it is still on the lower end compared to what other tables were paying. The cheapest price for a menu item was around $20.

You should also know that there is a minimum charge for groups of 7 or larger, so if you don’t want to spend even more money, try to stay below 7.


Is Bagatelle NYC worth the money?

I probably wouldn’t have decided to go to Bagatelle myself, but I’m very happy I did. It was a lot of fun and though it is expensive, the experience can be worth it. We had a blast and our day at Bagatelle is definitely one to remember. I would recommend Bagatelle NYC if you celebrate a special occasion, like a birthday or bachelorette party, or if you like to party and are visiting New York.

Because it’s so popular, be sure to make reservations in advance if you want a table (which I recommend).

I was wondering if you can walk in as a group of 6 at around 11 pm without having a table, just to dance and grab some drinks?
Thanks

that shouldn’t be a problem. If you want to secure a table however, it may be best to reserve a table in advance.

I’ve been there before and the experience is great. I left “early” however, around 7pm. Not sure until what time the party goes, I’ll be in NYC in late July but arrive around 6pm, is it still an option to party that evening or will have I missed the fun by the time I get there?
