Village Voice's Description
One-hundred-year-old cigarette burns, tin ceilings, large cats: If this is your thing, you simply can't beat the Harlem Flophouse. With its turn-of-the-century furniture, this refurbished house, under the careful eye of artist RenA(c) Calvo, is aging into elegance. Located just a few blocks away from the A,C, and E subway lines and close to many famous jazz clubs.
The Flophouse feels more like a 1930s Cat house and guess it is as there are two cats on the premises.. And one can feel the place come alive with the echoes of the jazz age.

The Flophouse feels more like a 1930s Cat house and guess it is as there are two cats on the premises.. And one can feel the place come alive with the echoes of the jazz age. Being adventure some Zou Zou and I stayed there and sleep like cats in clove breakfast $25 per couple in bed.room cost depending on the room double: $125.00-$175.00. www.harlemflophouse.com Zou Zou paid for the The Cozy Cole room and I paid for dinner and a trip to the Village Vanguard (jazz club-be sure to eat before you go as there is no food just liquor,beer,wine and if you have a.d.d find something else to do as you are there for the music and they will kick you out) there are clubs in the area but I am an old stick in the mud.
Tips from foursquare
Our bartender was "Purple" she was awesome, drinks were perfect. Front desk in manager was pleasant and accommodating as we need space for a meeting.
Getting a drink here requires patience and skill at Aloof. If you can get past the lack luster service the vibe is airy and great for conversation. Those wasabi bar snacks will clear your nostrils.
Tuesday nights live jazz band. Nice drinks. My host Leslie was entertaining. Oh and you can also get your pool game on if need be... over all nice chill spot.
Bar doesn't open til 5p.
A modern, colorful and vivacious bar where the bartenders are extremely friendly and helpful, the drink specials are great, the karaoke is karaoke and the Jazz is live.
