21: Every Day Was New Year's Eve
The story of New York's '21' Club is the story of American glamour in the twentieth century. In his star-studded memoir, saloonkeeper Peter Kriendler—younger brother of Jack Kriendler, cofounder of '21'—paints a spellbinding portrait of the club through its early years, its birth as a Greenwich Village speakeasy, its move to midtown during Prohibition, the tough days of the Great Depression, the dazzling Camelot nights, and the swinging go-go years as it became America's most legendary restaurant and a second home to the most powerful people in business, politics, and entertainment.
