Whiskey demands appreciation. It’s no surprise that New York, the city that boasts the best of everything, is home to The Flatiron Room, a fine spirits and dining parlor that offers more than 700 varieties of whiskey. Opened seven months ago, this new addition to Manhattan’s list of sophisticated venue has quickly proven itself as New York’s whiskey authority.
Tommy Tardie founder of the Flatiron Room, speaks about his inspiration for creating the upscale venue and what sets it apart from the traditional New York City bar scene.
“The Flatiron Room is a space that serves amazing food, delicious cocktails, has more than 700 whiskeys, and offers live music every night. It’s a place where people looking for a fun relaxing night out can go and not worry about pretension or a room so loud and crowded they can’t have a conversation.
We call ourselves a seated venue, meaning we provide seats for all our guests, and don’t let anyone else in. This way we are able to really focus on service and give everyone the attention they deserve. In the beginning, I admit it was a little rough turning customers away. Now our most frequent compliment from guests is that we don’t overcrowd the space.”
