Yesterday Thrillist reported the opening of Manhattan Lounge. The subhead reads: “Prime Uptown real estate for drinkers, dancers, and drink-then-dancers.”
I read the full snippet three times and I am still confused. I have a couple of questions for those of you who party at high-end establishments like Manhattan Lounge. The first one is not too serious.
Can someone explain the first paragraph in the story:
“Once you’ve made it through honest hard work, no one will blame you for surrounding yourself with the finer things, except maybe your ex-wife. And your estranged starter children. And Martin Sheen in Wall Street. Nevertheless moving on Uptown, the co-founder of Manhattan Lounge.”
Serious question: Please explain bottle service to me. The bottle service at Manhattan Lounge starts at $185, with discounts for 2 or more. (I am assuming that is 2 or more bottles, not people. Yikes.) So, does this mean I am going to pay over $200 with tip and whatnot for two bottles of vodka just to get a place to sit?
Enlighten me. I don’t get it.
