We tried Clover Club the other day. It’s a really nice wide open space that’s nicely appointed. I had their signature cocktail; which was gin, some sort of berry syrup and a little lemon. Not bad at all and very well made. I also tried this fizz drink (the name slips me) with gin, lime soda that was infused with cucumber. When ordering I thought the cucumber thing was weird, but when I tried it was of the same caliber as my first drink – also well made and refreshing. They served food, but we were just there for drinks. Only drawbacks were they were a bit pricey - Angry Wade’s they are not - and the staff was a bit too eager. When I was drinking my ice multiple waitresses kept asking me for my glass and I kept saying I’m good, I’m good. Not a biggie, kind of funny actually since most places on Smith have service that is non-existent.
If you want quality cocktails, a nice lounge and a good crowd, which seem to be devoid of your typical guido oafs that seem to fester up and down Smith, then give Clover Club a try.
So they have a guido oaf at the door checking ids to keep out the guido oafs.
ps: Yes, Angry Wade's they are not. THANK GOD.
We went last night and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the very tasty cocktails. I tried the Clover Club as well and really enjoyed. We are theorizing that it may have egg white, which gives it a slightly creamy top. Honestly, compared to cocktail prices in the city these days I thought the prices were very reasonable. The food bites were nice too. All and all, fun to have a new place to try in the neighborhood. We'll be back.
