Winston's Champagne Bar @ The Gansevoort Park Ave.:
Sure, the 1940s was an era of war, atomic destruction and a 43-cents-per-hour minimum wage, but it’s still fun to pretend it was also a golden age of slugging champagne and tripping the night fantastic. Winston’s takes these best memories of the era and jam-packs them into a stunning venue offering more than 100 different bubblies from two-dozen different champagne houses. Located next to the chichi Gansevoort Park Avenue, this two-level art-deco-ish club is full of silver, with the prominent accents of a key-lime-green piano up front and a cushy balcony just a spiral staircase away. You gotta pay to play, though, and Winston’s champagnes are predicatively pricey—in the thousands to even tens of thousands for certain vintages—while smaller-grower champagnes like Godme and Billiott are offered by the glass ($12+). The food options are minimal but classy, including cured meats, caviar and the like ($MP). By the time you leave Winston’s, the bubbles will have gone to your head and you’ll be swearing there was no better era than the ‘40s.
