Perched on the corner of Crosby and Broome, behind a chic black facade bubbling with disco balls, is New York's new celebration destination.
Part party store, part French cafe, fully a good time, this unique hybrid is the home to Brenna Gilbert's joint ventures Champers Social Club, a sure-to-be hot spot where guests can pop champagne bottles and caviar tins, and Feste, a playful host's dream emporium.
Certainly Soho has never been so entertaining.
Champers, a rustic-glam space that features a dining room with plenty of long tables for large parties, a petite, pretty bar, a private downstairs event space, and a see-and-be-seen outdoor setup, features a menu of elevated party snack classics by acclaimed chef Connie Chung (previously of Milu and Eleven Madison Park).
Tater tot grilled cheese, deviled eggs, flights of caviar paired with Ruffles potato chips, an extensive raw bar and more await for dinner and weekend brunch.
Earlier in the day, those strolling around the neighborhood can pop over to their L-shape marble bar, which serves up breakfast pastries, baked treats and Joe’s Coffee.
And just beyond, further into the long space, at Feste, a retail explosion of party must-haves and celebration inspiration!
An artful display of red Solo cups cheekily shines inside a glass case, deconstructed party scenes filled with gold paper crowns, popped confetti, disco balls and tinsel punctuate the main wall in shadow boxes.
Products ranging from glassware and neon signs to parlor games, fresh flowers and gourmet pantry staples (supplied in partnership with Alimentari Flâneur) are not only available à la carte, but in curated kits designed to make hosting a breeze, and full-service event design packages.
Time to dust off your sense of occasion!
