I turned 21 while studying in Europe where the drinking age is 18, so 21 meant nothing over there. But in America, 21 is a pivotal age for college students, and there are so many great ways to properly celebrate this momentous age in New York besides going out with friends to a normal bar.

Even though it just opened in 2016, it has quickly become one of New York’s most beloved clubs.

Swap out a birthday cake for birthday pancakes, but keep the booze, of course.
