Best place to mistake a Jew for a WASP - 2004
Formerly host to the Brooklyn Debutante Ball, the HEIGHTS CASINO specializes in recreating the good old, all-white splendor of early-day racquet clubs: bourbon at court-side, squeaky-strict dress codes, and an unabashedly impossible member-screening process. The center court (which runs at $43 an hour for members only) is straddled by wicker table sets and a grand piano. This year, the club celebrates its 100th anniversary. Cheers, gents!
