How would you describe Chelsea Manor?
We are a small lounge that offers affordable lunch, dinner and late night entertainment. Starting in the fall we will also offer delivery.
When did the Chelsea Manor first open?
We opened in January 2011.
Who are your typical clientele?
During happy hour we have a lot of businessmen and of course it varies on the weekend. Friday and Saturday are definitely the busiest nights.
Tell me about the menu and the items served here?
We have a full dinner menu with American tapas and entrees. The martini list is very popular. Personally, I like the passion fruit martini!
What was the best event you’ve hosted so far at the Chelsea Manor?
That would have to be the Cinco De Mayo party we hosted for Forbes magazine. The crowd was huge…a lot of interesting people…a lot of beautiful people – it made for great people watching! It was very extravagant. But we also like to host more modest charity events here – those are great because we have a chance to give back to the community. We contribute part of the proceeds to the charity that is hosting the party.
What was the most creative party at the Chelsea Manor?
We had a birthday party here once that was pretty crazy. Our guest was Brazilian and chose to theme the entire party after his culture – the food, the dancers, everything! The dancers even did flips! I’ve never seen anything like it.
