AskMen 12/10/10Out of our standard vague anti-Williamsburg bias and our fear of saying the wrong thing vis-a-vis contemporary art, we're going to single out the 21 club as our internal A. List pick here.
21 W. 52nd St
New York, NY
We know you’ve yearned to enter the haute society seen at the 21 Club. We know- the celebrities, the glitz, the class, are sometimes hard to resist. And now, with Bar 21, you don’t have to. Peek into the recesses of the legendary 21 Club at this new, more lax bar that focuses on all things dramatic. Bright lights fall atop red tufted wing-back chairs and couches, for a striking, elegant touch. With expert mixologists, and an incomparably welcoming atmosphere (in a place known for its exclusivity), you’ll be loving this instant class-builder.

The Wall Street Journal 4/6/12The lounge's dark wood paneling, fireplace, Frederic Remington horse paintings, the low lighting, and the men in suits and ties—despite a recent loosening of the dress code—still beckon another age.
