Keens: Scotch and Chops for All


Although they’ve been letting in women since 1901, Keens Steakhouse retains a classic clubby vibe, which has made it a guys night out destination across three centuries. Mahogany walls and antique paintings max out the atmosphere, with historic pipes in the ceiling recalling the days Babe Ruth and Teddy Roosevelt hung out here. You’ll probably be in the mood for a scotch, and Keens accommodates with a three-page list. Split a flight in preparation for the evening’s major dilemma: dry-aged USDA prime beef, or a legendary mutton chop? No worries, both are can’t-miss. Finish with a slice of authentic New York cheesecake and then retire to the bar to recap. There’s absolutely no risk they’ll run out of whisky.
