    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.

    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.
