Let them eat cupcakes. For those of you who have not seen Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, Red Velvet Lounge recreates the sweet decadence of those days before she lost her head. Heavy velvet and pure opulence drench the petite quarters; plush banquettes clutter the walking zone; palatial fixtures illuminate the space—all resulting in a semi-clandestine party packed full of The Eldridge crew and other LES locals. Servers costumed in red silk chemises, fishnets and high, high heels saunter with trays of libations (positively correlated with Gramercy Park Hotel’s menu) and tiny cupcakes (courtesy of Baked by Melissa). If it seems decadent, that's because it is, but fear not the guillotine: Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI smile safely down at your from the ceiling fresco. Oh la la!
