A new rooftop destination plants itself in the firmament of New York nightlife. The Fleur Room is located at 105 W 28th Street on Moxy Chelsea’s 35th floor. The glass-encased lounge has a 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline, from the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building. The club officially opened its doors on March 7, 2019. The design by Rockwell Group adds a glamorous touch to the botanical theme with rich floral fabrics, a copper-clad bar, a water droplet chandelier, and a massive vintage disco ball that once graced the infamous LA Club Vertigo. At the touch of a button, the glass walls of the lounge retract to create an alfresco sky veranda. Since opening its doors, it has become one of the hottest rooftop bars and for good reason, the entire design creates a sophisticated and vintage vibe.
The Fleur Room is a one-of-a-kind experience that takes guests' breath away the moment they step out of the elevator. It’s divided into two spaces: a more casual room complete with a full classic bar and ample seating, and a second, wider room lined with banquettes that transitions into a dance floor as the night goes on. To heighten the experience, the staff raises the garage-style windows to let in the fresh air on warm spring and summer evenings. True to its name—and tipping its hat to the historic Flower District—The Fleur Room welcomes guests to a space filled with floral themes, from the massive bouquet at the entrance to the flora-encased glass tables to the floral-patterned furnishings.
Fridays and Saturdays are your best bet at The Fleur Room. By 12:30 a.m., it becomes the most fun, crazy room—but cool and curated, elevated and elegant. It’s an old-school dance party, with New York as the backdrop. Weeknights can also be a great time and tend to have smaller crowds. Guests can enjoy the relaxed lounge atmosphere and cocktail menu from opening through sunset, and as evening turns into late night, the atmosphere turns more celebratory as a DJ begins cranking the music and the dance floor fills with partygoers. The type of music played is the open format: a mix from groovy, to pop, to hip hop. The music varies to suit many different tastes and the vibe gets more clubby as the night progresses.
The Fleur Room has a reputation for attracting high-profile guests; so you never know who you’re going to see. In fact, the lounge has already hosted well-known visitors such as Mick Jagger, Idris Elba, Sebastian Stan, Mina Cvetkovic, and Chace Crawford, among others.
Be advised that The Fleur Room is pretty strict on dress code, upscale fashionable attire is required. For guys, they recommend a collared shirt, pants, and nice shoes. No basketball shorts, team jerseys, baseball caps, robes, or tank tops will be permitted in the venue. Ladies can’t go wrong with a little black dress and heels. Please note, however, that entrance is always at the discretion of the door staff. Please also keep in mind that all guests must be 21+ w/a valid ID to enter.
