The High Line Hotel is launching Champagne Charlie’s, a unique new outdoor lounge and restaurant by renowned restaurateurs, Nick Hatsatouris and Lincoln Pilcher. Located in the hotel’s historic courtyard in Chelsea at 10th Avenue and 20th Street, Champagne Charlie’s features a menu of small plates (oysters, crudos, salads, burgers and a weekend brunch menu), spirits, beer and a selection of premium Champagnes and wines by the glass or bottle.
Champagne Charlie’s features bistro-style seating and custom-created banquettes. Informal yet sophisticated – a Hatsatouris and Pilcher signature – Champagne Charlie’s décor and styling reflect the personality of both The High Line Hotel’s Roman & Williams interiors and its eclectic and discerning clientele.
Echoing the heritage and history of The High Line Hotel – a former General Theological Seminary building dating back to 1895 – the new space was named after the 1866 song “Champagne Charlie,” whose lyrics by George Leybourne are believed to have sparked the creation of the song “Cliquot,” composed by Leybourne’s rival, Alfred Vance.

About The High Line Hotel:
Nestled within a cluster of landmarked buildings in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, The High Line Hotel is an urban sanctuary offering guests a respite from the city in a historic setting. Originally built in 1895 as student housing for the General Theological Seminary, the intimate 60-room Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors-designed property is located within a rare, cloistered community overlooking the High Line park and an enclosed private garden. Blending eclectic Americana with European style, the property pays tribute to its English collegiate Gothic roots. A destination of its own, the hotel’s lobby is the home to Chicago-based Intelligentsia Coffee’s first East Coast outpost. The High Line Hotel is a development of MCR Development LLC and The Brodsky Organization.
