An iconic New York City restaurant is shutting its doors indefinitely.
The famed 21 Club will be laying off all of its employees by early March, according to the president of a union that represents the restaurant's workers.
21 Club has been around since 1930 when it became on of Manhattan's most famous speakeasies of the Prohibition era. The Midtown restaurant is well known for its display of decorative jockeys lining the balcony above the entrance. Inside, the bar room is decorated with memorabilia from patrons, including donations from Presidents John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton.
The president of 21 Club's union says he believes the iconic restaurant will return in some form once the pandemic is under control.
