Bar Clover Club

Clover Club

Named the best American Cocktail bar at the Spirited Awards in 2013, Clover Club has been serving some of the best drinks in Brooklyn for years. Julie Reiner, the co-owner and beverage director of both Clover Club and the Flatiron Lounge, is one of the best in the business and delivers a food and drink experience that everyone can enjoy.

The space pays homage to a bygone Prohibition era, wood panels, copper ceilings, tufted sofas, and all. It does this without feeling stuffy or pretentious; rather, the space is very accessible and inviting. Classic cocktails are the focus of the menu, but the offering is diverse and will teach you a thing or two about what a well-balanced, proper cocktail truly means. The selection ranges from swizzles, sours & daisies, to punches, gin variations, and cocktails that originated at hotel bars. Sit at the bar and ask the knowledgeable staff for a recommendation or have a seat at one of the booths if you’re lucky enough to snatch one.

Although known first and foremost as a bar, Clover Club actually has an extensive food offering and is a local brunch favorite. Here you’ll find anything and everything from steak tartare to duck fat crisps, oysters, baked eggs, and a variety of southern dishes like grits and fried chicken. Whether you’re going for brunch, lunch, dinner, or a snack, we promise that the cocktails will be the real star of the show.

Pro tip:   The bar’s namesake, the clover club, is light, fruity, slightly sour, and when made properly, the epitome of well-balanced. If you’ve never had one, make sure you get it here. For brunch, don’t be a bore and order a bloody mary (the other brunch cocktail menus are just too good). If you must, do it with bourbon!
