New York, New York – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
For a midsummer breather that diverges from the customary itinerary, head over to midtown Manhattan’s Bar 21 to enjoy a laughter-filled night of interactive bar events that will have guests learning how to prepare the bar’s signature bites and cocktails. Executive Chef John Greeley will reveal his secrets to making the perfect quick-eats and their most complementary wine and cocktail pairings.
From demonstrations of his famous Mayan-style guacamole to lessons on making apple cider and BBQ sauce to accompany his celebrated pulled pork sandwiches, chef Greeley will create unforgettable nights in a city that offers nothing less. Guests will also be encouraged to sample cocktails and new items on the menu to their hearts content.
These events will take place every Wednesday of August from 6 to 8 pm at absolutely no cost, encouraging guests to enjoy the carefree moments that attend balmy summer nights. For the month of August, the main restaurant at 21 Club will be closed with a modified lounge menu, while club private dining rooms will remain available for dinner. To celebrate the season, Bar 21 has modified its normally upscale dress code to a cool summer chic, as well as opening for reduced summer hours. This iconic Orient-Express hotspot offers one-of-a-kind American cuisine, an award-winning wine list and first-class service in a setting that is stylish yet fun.
