ANOTHER COVID VICTIM: THE "21 CLUB" CLOSES ITS DOORS

The closure of '21' Club is an enormous loss for NYC and American gastronomy. Unless the owners can somehow re-purpose the place without ruining it, this is as stunning a closure as that of Le Cirque, L├╝chow's, Windows on the World, the original Four Seasons, Mamma Leone's, Palm and a very few others. The legends of  ‘21’ are legion, with a speakeasy past, a raffish reputation, a snobbish regard and fabulous artwork.

  1. Really sad and bad news to hear. My uncle put a cousin through college at that place, legendary tippers, and the city will die a little more by its absence.
