The club has also made an appearance on the show Person of Interest

Yesterday we rounded up Boardwalk Empire‘s filming locations in Brooklyn, where much of the series has been filmed. Today we’re showing you some of the places in Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island that served as the backdrop for the show’s action.

According to the New York Post, this East Village restaurant was Joe the Boss and Lucky’s meeting place in the 7th episode of the current season. It was also turned into Whiting’s Pharmacy for a day this June. Aside from serving as the set of Boardwalk Empire, John’s of 12th Street is a popular Italian Restaurant. It converted its top floors into a speakeasy during Prohibition, serving alcohol in espresso cups. Patrons are said to have included some of the characters depicted on Boardwalk Empire. In fact, the restaurant attracted a lot of mob types. Perhaps it was the appeal of the original tile floors (which remain intact today) or the immense wax candelabra at the back of the restaurant.
