Our second time here, this time for my wife’s birthday. The staff really went out of their way to make it special for her. Bottle service (and they let her hold a sparkler), and then eventually they surprised us with birthday brownies. DJ is really good and it was super fun. Will definitely be back to celebrate the good times. Thanks all!

Overcrowded
Music too loud
Given a menu, placed an order, only to be told the kitchen closed
Order drinks, a half hour later no drinks, we left

48 Lounge is a cool spot to go to. I went with a friend for a quick drink and just to catch up. Drinks, food and service was great BUT my biggest gripe is that it was the music was WAAAAY to loud to the point that I could barely have a decent conversation with my friend. I understand if it was at night but this was at 2:15p in the afternoon. Other than that I had a pretty good experience.

I’d come back again….just lower the volume a little please for lunch ☺️

J'ai passé un bon moment au Lounge 48. La nourriture n'est pas très top mais ça passe lorsque l'on a un petit creux. Bonne musique (un peu de tout) et les hôtes sont superbes gentilles et professionnelles. Je recommande

This was an amazing place to just chill and get a few drinks. I went with my friend and we were given a choice of where we preferred to sit, the menu was online and easily accessible, the food was amazing, drinks were tasty and strong BUT TASTED LIKE JUICE YUM (at least the ones I got🥰) and it was a very friendly environment. Definitely going again!

It was incredibly loud. The drinks were good and the service was decent. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The crowd was overwhelming and obnoxious. Many appeared to be too young to be customers. It’s not a classy adult environment. The music was terrible. Maybe it was the particular dj that night but I won’t bother going back

It was very unorganized, waitress forgot my drink for like 20 minutes on the bar. I knew it was mine but she kept passing by it. Music was too soft and pop.

Overall I love the ambiance. I was disappointed because I thought I was going to be able to eat but the kitchen was close, but after looking at the menu which just included appetizers I wasn’t disappointed plus the drinks compensated for the food. I understand that we are in a pandemic but if you are going to serve just appetizers there should be more of a variety.

48 Lounge is always my go-to spot for client meetings, particularly if the client is from out-of-town because it shows the vibe, pulse and ambiance of NYC. Fantastic wait staff and hosts/hostesses. Everything is top notch and all patrons are treated like celebs.

Worst service I’ve ever received. Ordered food and 45 minutes after ordering they told us one of the things we ordered (literally half of what we ordered for dinner) wasn’t available. We waited for an hour after ordering and our food hadn’t come so decided to leave because we no longer had time to order again and wait another hour for the food. DO NOT GO THERE!
