New York is spoilt for choice with every type of restaurant a city full of 8 million people can dream of, but the 21 club is legendary by name, nature and it’s long lasting appeal.
Starting as a naughty speakeasy in the Prohibition era complete with invisible doors and secret tunnels for bottles of champagne to drop into people’s laps (glug!) it was promptly turned into a lavish restaurant which catered for all the stars including Marilyn, Humphrey, Ava and Frank.
Popular with young and old, presidents and city workers the 21 club runs ravage with tales of days gone by.
The club boasts a succulent cocktail list that if supped at the long oak bar is perfect as a magic movie moment whilst the ceiling is covered with extravagant toys (one donated by J.F Kennedy too!)
Outside there is a selection of jockeys in their finest bright colours of which I was informed by the manager are ‘priceless,’ and enjoying my post-shoot Manhattan at the bar afterwards, I felt that moment too was as priceless as a New York moment could be…
