While there are several dining areas at the 21 Club, the most energetic by far is the Bar Room, where the ceiling is famously covered in toys donated by the club’s famous regulars (they’ve hosted every president since FDR). But even in the bar, men have to comply with the dress code, which was only recently adjusted to allow men without neckties at lunch—you’ll still need a jacket any time of day. The menu is classically American (the burger is actually really good), but it’s much more about the atmosphere than the food.
