“Who enters here leaves care behind, leaves sorrow behind, leaves petty envies and jealousies behind.”
Clover Club began as a social and sipping club of fine journalists, and today welcomes everyone. The club’s ambience reminds guests of the early years at the Clover, with handcrafted cocktails, well-dressed bartenders, and exposed-brick walls.
The motto of the Clover Club has always been, “Who enters here leaves care behind, leaves sorrow behind, leaves petty envies and jealousies behind,” so a night here is sure to be relaxed as long as you follow the rule.
They got the old-timey part down. The étoile wallpaper, the pressed-tin ceilings, the astute devotion to classics like the Atholl Brose (a whiskey drink from 1475). But what makes Clover Club better than other turn-of-the-century-style joints is that all of that oldness never overshadows a Brooklyn-style casualness, which feels just right for right now.
With master mixologist Julie Reiner in charge and a crack squad of bartenders, the cocktails are as good as any in the world. But they’re a couple of bucks cheaper than at other top cocktail bars, and they feature far fewer flashy ingredients and trendy techniques.
“While we live we live in clover; When we die we die all over!
