Mad Men Manhattan

21 Club

Courtesy of '21' Club


On the Show: The Drapers attend a star-studded party at the (since closed) former speakeasy Stork Club, where Betty Draper learns from the comedian and star of one of Don’s advertisements, Jimmy Barrett, that her husband is having an affair with Jimmy’s wife and manager, Bobbie Barrett. (Season 2)

In Reality: Opened as a speakeasy in 1930, the historic restaurant 21 is the perfect spot for a three-martini lunch. In contrast to the adulterous atmosphere at the Stork Club on the show, the upstairs dining room at 21 is a popular spot for wedding proposals.

Best If You’re: Entertaining clients, or mixing business with pleasure.
