Wednesday night my 30th birthday client and I met with the Event Sales Manager at the Flatiron Hotel for a venue tour of their Penthouse and Terrace, and the Mezzanine level of Toshi’s Living Room. The Penthouse is a great space for a private party or corporate event for about 100 people and has all the necessary connections for a DJ to spin or for a company presentation.
The Terrace would be an ideal place for a summer cocktail party has spectacular view of the Empire State Building!
Toshi’s Living Room is on the first level of the Flatiron Hotel and is a cozy neighborhood spot for listening to live music, which is exactly what my client is looking for to cap off the night of 30th birthday party.
After our tour my client and I stayed for a drink and listened to the band that was playing that night. Even though I had heard that Toshi, the owner, and his dog were regular fixtures at the hotel, I was still a bit surprised when he was actually the who sat us in the Living Room and took our drink order! The menus are created to look like old family photo albums (clever touch for a “living room” theme) and include pictures of Toshi’s childhood, a very creative touch! The cocktails were listed under the heading “Glasses of Happiness” which I immediately loved. My client and I both selected “The Toshi” cocktail, a combination of gin, lemon & champagne (I must be ready for that summer cocktail party on the Terrace!) which was positively delightful!
