Style File: New lounges Gemma and Set open on Lincoln Road
Set in your old ways and tired of the old hangouts on Lincoln Road? Well two new lounges have opened up there with two totally different vibes. In tonight's Style File, 7's Belkys Nerey shows us where you can sip champagne on a balcony or dance on designer tables.
WSVN -- From dining to shopping, Lincoln Road is always hustling and bustling.
But there's a new jewel you could probably walk right by and never even know it's there!
Tonino Donio: "Gemma in English means gem, something beautiful."
Gemma lives up to it's name.
The new lounge secretly tucked above Tonino Doino's restaurant Rosinella is perfect for an after-dinner cocktail.
Carolyn Grenier: "You can actually talk and hear yourself talk."
It's an intimate space where you can relax on couches and ottomans, listen to music and watch old black and white movies playing on a big screen.
Jose Carlo: "It's like being in your own living room. You have a nice dim-lighted interior, you have the nice sofas, you have music."
What really makes it a gem? It boasts the only balcony view of Lincoln Road!
Perfect for watching the pedestrian parade below.
Sage Hoffman: "I love this balcony area because it has a really different perspective of Lincoln Road."
The scene is quite different a few blocks down at Set.
Just like it's name, the new luxury nightclub is set in style.
Hardy Hill: "Basically what we've done is given an updated type of homage to glamorous 1940s style of old Hollywood."
It would make old Hollywood proud, with crystal chandeliers, a fire pit and pucci-covered couches.
Brandy Schultz: "It's fabulous. It looks great. It's fun, makes people want to be energetic."
The weekend parties are always big, but, at their weekly Thursday night party, the stage is set for the art-fashion crowd.
Max Perre: "I love it because of the music. It's a different vibe. It's a beautiful crowd, very eclectic. Great mix of people."
But getting in isn't easy, so you just have to find which part you're set to play.
Hardy Hill: "So the key is the guest who will make it the most fun, sexy experience possible."
Belkys: Set also boasts a private VIP room called the trophy room, which can hold up to 25 guests.
