Classic New York: The Clover Club


At the heart of the Brooklyn cocktail renaissance is Cobble Hills’ Clover Club. For the past decade, bartenders here have been known of their innovative cocktail creations.

In fact, a few years ago, I took a cocktail making course at the Brooklyn Kitchen with one of the Clover Club’s owners and head bartenders Tom Macy. Even though he no longer teaches the course, I recommend checking out his website for some awesome recipes and tips.

Back to the Clover Club…as former ADA Mogil and I were catching a move at the Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse, we decided to grab a quick bite at the Clover Club before our movie. I had the Flight 57, a refreshing grapefruit and champagne cocktail while Jared tried the more spirit-forward bourbon Boa Constrictor.


The cocktails were tasty, and the food was delicious to match. We split the crispy brussels sprouts with bacon and a maple vinaigrette along with the spice PEI mussels served in a white wine sauce. If you are looking for a cocktail and a bite or a special night out on the town, the Clover Club is a great date night spot in Brooklyn.
