Intimate champagne bar in midtown

Flute Midtown
Originally uploaded by lools.

I discovered Flute Midtown yesterday when a friend invited me to a business networking event she was hosting. I thought the this was quite an odd venue for a very social gathering as Flute struck me as the perfect spot for a wonderfully romantic and mellow evening...

The bar was designed by noted industrial designer Jean Pierre Rosseau. The ceilings are low and there are little alcoves with coloured velvet couches and ottomans that can house small groups of friends. The champagne collection is, of course, the finest one can find in the city. I was feeling a bit cheap mid-week so just stuck to a one of my favorite sparkling wines - the Piper Sonoma Blance de Noirs which was quite delicious actually.
