This fall, the ‘21’ Club unveiled Bar ‘21’ a renovated 10-seat bar and lounge on the ground floor of the historic Prohibition-era speakeasy. The new bar space exudes a warm sophisticated ambiance with antique pine paneling, a damask floral patterned carpet, and earth-toned leather furnishings. This intimate venue serves as a great addition to the 81-year-old 4 story ‘21’ Club which boasts over 10 beautifully appointed private banquet rooms.

Patrons at Bar ‘21’ can expect a generous array of dishes and snacks courtesy of esteemed Chef John Greeley. Notable bar food options include the Fried “buffalo” with creamy goat cheese sauce, Soft New York Pretzels with a jalapeno cheddar dip, and Grilled Chicken or Fish tacos with salsa and avocado.   For sit down lunch, some offerings include the Sliced Sirloin Baguette and the Bar 21 Burger.  The new Bar ‘21’ is open for lunch during weekdays from 12:00 to 4:00PM providing a new dining and beverage option for guests at ‘21’.

The bar is a public space and not available for private events however, banquet guests can certainly enjoy the space prior, during, and after their events. With so many formal event spaces at  ‘21’, a dedicated public lounge and bar provides appeal to broader group of busy banquet-goers.
