There is simply no other Bar Book out there that matches this truly rare book in recipes and commentary threaded with a colorful history. It is simply a "MUST HAVE" for anyone who collects Bar Books or Stork Club memorabilia.
From the Roaring Twenties to the chaotic Sixties, The Stork Club (Owned by Sherman Billingsley) was New York's hottest nightclub. It was a glittering world where celebrities, politicians and millionaires congregated.
Return to the glory days of New York long since gone and browse the club's legendary bartender's manual.
