I got a chance to check out the new Champagne Salon in the West Loop as a little sneak peak last night. Let me tell you: IT IS AWESOME!
You enter through a little alley way…. all NYC Freeman’s-style. Down said alley, and around a building and find yourself in a brick-covered courtyard. Very rustic-city-chic. There are lights that hang from building to building and an awesome little patio. There’s a bunch of interesting wall art… old or new… I’m not quite sure.
And there are bubbles! Lots of them! There will also be snacks. Just little bites to nibble while you sip your champagne. Chef Jared VanCamp from Nellcote is doing the food… and you know how I love him. I assume they’ll be similar to the hors d’oeuvres they presented at the party which were all delicious. Thinks like Salmon or Beef Tartar and Burrata with Caviar. I mean… c’mon… one MUST have caviar with Champagne! ;) Oh! And there was souffle!
We probably shouldn’t expect this every night of the week, but Som Jason was sabering bottles left and right. It was way cool.
And as the evening darkens, a beautiful candle display shines brighter against an old wooden door. Very old world.
Up the stairs, past the elevated patio (which will be canopied in cooler months), a little old-French feeling room awaits.
Guess where I’m headed for an after dinner drink?
