‘21′ Club (21 W 52nd St, 212-582-7200) is rich in history from surviving the prohibition era to acting as a backdrop for multiple Oscar Winning films since the 1950s. With the Academy Awards around the corner on Sunday, March 2, we thought it would be a great time to highlight the history at ’21′ with a nod to the movies filmed at the iconic dining destination or perhaps highlighting all notable restaurants that have been the backdrop for movies in general.
Some notable scenes included the moment in Wall Street (1988) when stockbroker Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen) gets a taste of the high life (and steak tartar), which was filmed in the restaurant’s famous Bar Room, as well as a scene in One Fine Day (1977) when Michael Pfeiffer’s character has drinks with clients in the Lounge. To enjoy the Oscar Winning Performances in person, those in New York can pay tribute to the Academy by sipping the ‘Red Carpet’ cocktail available at ’21′ for a limited time or at the comfort of their home by recreating the attached recipe.
Here’s a list of Oscar Winning Movies Filmed at ’21′:
