As you first arrive through the hall featuring vines and lanterns, the ambiance will set your imagination.  The dim lighting and distinct character provides guests with a beautiful setting.  Impressive leather banquettes, deep wood tones and dazzling chandeliers give guests a cozy, elegant, and warm feel. Invite Only is the full experience, from the atmosphere, food & drinks, to the live music where you will hear jazz, guest artists and DJ sets. The perfect hotspot for our cover star P.J. Byrne.

Byrne is best known for best known for his roles as Nicky “Rugrat” Koskoff in the Martin Scorsese film Wolf of Wall Street, and Scott Leavitt in Vinyl.  His improvisation and comedic skills made the night a memorable one for all guests. Be sure to watch out for his upcoming roles in Big Little Lies alongside Reese Witherspoon, Eloise alongside Chace Crawford, and Three Women alongside Sara Paxton.



What to try when you’re there: The Mash Burger tops the list of the New York City burger scene and crushes the competition. The burger is smothered in caramelized onions, melted with house-made jalapeño queso, topped with delectable pickled vegetables and served on a buttery soft brioche.  The signature menu of cocktails is extraordinary and available in single or pincher size, either iced or frozen.  The night featured cocktails by Vodka Mariette, who offered up their Orange & Pineapple flavor, giving cocktails a smooth flavor, filled with taste. Maison Cubi provided guests with a variety of their wines including a light bodied and floral Rosé from Provence, a well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc with light mineral flavors and a red blend Syrah-Carignan providing guests with an intense nose of dark berries. A new hotspot for social gatherings, food, drinks, and live music in the Meatpacking District, Invite Only offers it all!
