Cocktails delicious and alcohol
Cocktails delicious and alcohol not spared (we had Violet Kiss, Jamaican Ting and Old Fashioned). Very good selection of wines (we had Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc). While some may complain that it is on the expensive side, for Midtown Manhattan, its not a shock to the pocket. Highly recommend the Artichoke & Spinach Dip, Meatballs and Hummus & Pita. Delicious food, hot and fresh.
The most wonderful thing about 48 Lounge is their fantastic staff! Without doubt, one of the few bars in New York that pay special attention to their clientele. It was extemely busy the night we were there but never once had to call anyone over! Receiving customer service like this is worth every penny spent on a great night out. Thank you!

Nice tapas bar
Went early because we had theater tickets. Had 6:00 pm reservations and were the first guests. Sat at bar. Service was excellent. Has a limited wine list but had some good choices. We ordered a 2008 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon and the bar tender immediately asked if we wanted it decanted. She did an excellent job. The tapas selections were mixed. Most of what we had were excellent. I would recommend the meatballs, artichoke dip and the baked shrimp and chorizo skewers. This is not a formal restaurant with tables. Itnisva lounge. Later in the evening it probably gets pretty loud. Still, it was fine for a pre-theater dinner.

Pricey, but excellent small
Pricey, but excellent small plates, ambience and service. Drinks and wines were excellent. Great place to meet with friends or for a date.

We visited on a Friday night. The service is superb, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is vibrant. I arrived before my party and felt very comfortable while waiting. The DJ came in and played great music. I look forward to going back again!

Went to 48 Lounge on a Wednesday
Went to 48 Lounge on a Wednesday night with a group of 6. All of the food was delicious and I would recommend everything we ordered, the only downside being the small portions. We ordered the Tater Tots, Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip, Miso Pulled Pork Sliders, Chicken Burgers “CLT”, Filet Mignon Sliders, Pesto Pizza and the Roasted Tomato and Chorizo Pizza. The service was great, my sister ordered a drink she did not like and the staff took back the drink and removed the charge from our bill. The music was loud making it difficult to have a conversation but otherwise I recommend 48 Lounge.

A nite at The 48
Staff treated as though we were special. Made for a great time. Enjoyed meeting new friends and shared the experience before going to the theatre. Next time we're on New York, we'll definitely be back. Aloha from Hawaii!

We picked the 48 Lounge because of its beautiful decor. We were expecting to have a very relaxed night out with some friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. What we did not expect was that the DJ would be so good. People started dancing and before you know it, it was a full out party! Even if you are the type of person who does not like clubs, you could still continue to relax and have your conversation with your friends with no interference. Just the perfect atmosphere. Mike the manager, and the waiting staff was very accommodating; they made sure that we had everything we needed. My lady loved her birthday and everyone went home happy.
