    Great cocktail menu. However, some bartenders may need to be reminded that every cocktail should not be shaken. Nightly $6 cocktails during the week and free biscuits and gravy 2nd & 4th Sunday's.

    It's crowded on Saturday, but nowhere near as bad as some other areas of town. Good selection of beer and a well made G&T.

    be under 30 & a hot femme ... then the service is excellent ... if your not option 1, 2 or both .... be prepared to stand at the bar with an empty glass in your hand!

    Clive is one of the most relaxing bars on Rainey Street because of its "Western" feel. Try visiting several of the bars on the street, each has a very distinct personality.

    Ask the bartenders what they like to make. They're all very passionate about their craft, and they tend to have a couple of amazing drinks in their back pockets! Or just get a Pecan Porter on draft.

    This place is fantastic. However, the ping pong table is unfairly positioned and leaves one side with an unfair advantage.
