    If I had to choose only one bar in New York City, Clover Club would be it. They have fun Gilded Age-ish snacks and signature drinks, plus lots of champagne. -Alex McCord, Real Housewives of New York C

    Killer brunch! Baked eggs with truffles and leeks are delicious. Nice side of greens and perfect type of thick sour bread toast. Can't go wrong. I cleaned the plate.

  • The Corcoran Group

    This is the place to get unique old-school NYC drinks. The bowtied bartenders can make you anything you want…or didn’t know you wanted. Also try the duck fat crisps.

    Sweet talk the hostess and score a table/sofa in the back room. Order your favorite fizz to show you mean delicious business.

    Congratulations, you have found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Clover Club is a grown-up bar for grown-ups, where "grown-up" doesn't mean "pretentious." Order the New York sour. It's great.

  • Alex R.

    The Southside Fizz may be the most delicious, most refreshing, alcoholic beverage I've ever had. Try it.

  • Metromix

    Our Readers' Choice WINNER for Best Bar. This cocktail kingdom adds some culture to each drink with full menu for any style. Try the French 75, a mixture of gin, lemon, sugar and champagne. Oui oui! Read more

  • Village Voice

    Order the seasonal Harvest punch, a medley of mulled apple cider, Martinique and Jamaican rums, Cognac and apple wheels.

  • Fredo C.

    Try to sit in the corner seat (F`14) at the front of the house bar. From F14 u can see the whole bar and watch the barkeepers at their craft. Get deviled eggs and an Manhattan cocktail to off.

    Fredo Ceraso · November 13, 2010
  • The Corcoran Group

    If you haven't visited the bar's back parlor room, be sure to do so. Complete with its own bar, a roaring fireplace, and cozy couches perfect for lounging, it's the ideal place to go on a cold day.

  • Food & Wine

    This new classics–focused venture is co-owned by Julie Reiner of Manhattan's renowned Flatiron Lounge. We suggest the Clover Club (gin, dry vermouth, lemon juice, raspberry syrup).

    The happy hour has Some great drinks for half off at the bar. Also some bar snacks. Best deal anywhere on Smith

    For Prohibition Style cocktails sans “speakeasy”-style pretension (read: long lines, no groups of more than four). Don’t forget to order the lamb burger. -Anna Maltby, MC Editor

    MarieClaire · November 17, 2010
  • Men's Health Mag

    They specialize in drinks made in the pre-Prohibition days. So reminisce todays gone by with a swizzle.

    Men's Health Mag · November 22, 2011

    The 19th-century bar is neither pretentious nor stuffy. Try the Clover Club Cocktail - an old Philadelphia concoction made from gin, vermouth, lemon juice, raspberry syrup and egg whites. Read more

    For a taste of their mastery, order an Athol Brose #3. (food-wise: the lamb burger is where it's at)

    Cover club is NOT Clover Club

    Joe Kozlinski · July 16, 2011
  • Jamie F.

    Ask for Brad. He'll mix up the best southern-style cocktail this side of the Mason Dixon.

    Jamie Freed · December 22, 2010
  • Florent P.

    If you're getting along well with your waitress, she might fix you with a cocktail that is not on the menu, just based on your current craving...

    Florent Peyre · August 27, 2009
  • Kim B.

    High quality cocktails. If you like an Old Fashion, try their Improved Whiskey Cocktail.

    Kim Bost · September 6, 2013
  • Sarah M.

    The Bee's Kiss is not on the menu, but it's amazing! It's like a honey-topped cloud floating on top of your drink. The waitstaff might not know what you are asking for, but the bartender will.

    Sarah Malloy-Good · July 29, 2013
  • Cap W.

    Amazing. Love Wednesday night jazz. So legit.

    Cap Watkins · February 7, 2013
  • Brian M.

    Fantastic drinks, amazing mac & cheese (with bacon), outdoor seating, live jazz, and excellent service. This is the best place on Earth.

    Brian Moore · August 30, 2012
  • Jake S.

    Ask the bartender to make you something with sloe gin. Sit back. Watch magic being made. Drink and enjoy.

    When did Clover Club turn into such a shit show?

    Jonathan P. · October 23, 2011
  • J. T.

    Order an "Old Fashioned" & ask that they use their recommended Rye whiskey! You won't regret! Great drinks, great atmosphere, & the bartenders actually know what they are doing.

    J. Thibodeau · September 28, 2011
  • Razorfish

    Fantastic brunch, even better cocktails and ample seating make this place worth the trek if you are a non-Brooklynite.

    Best Old Fashioned in NYC by far

    Mr. Tangerine Man Cocktail is great.

    Ana Mangeon · February 19, 2010
  • Jeff F.

    The Green Swizzle - gin, falernum, lime, absinthe, soda, bitters. Delicious.

    Jeff Forbes · June 25, 2014
  • Damien C.

    Gin Bloodys! The special omelette is generally really good.

    Damien Correll · September 21, 2013
  • Russell H.

    While they are no longer on the menu, the Mister Brown and the F-14 are satisfying. May their recipes never die.

    Russell H · November 11, 2012
  • Benjy W.

    Overcome your hesitation and get the Green Giant. Super-tasty and refreshing. And yes, those are sugar snap peas.

    Benjy Weinberger · May 5, 2012
  • Lauren S.

    Try the Pilot's Dread! It's like an alcoholic apple pie.

    Lauren Sperber · September 25, 2011
  • Alex

    Order the delicious fries and don't order ketchup.

    Alex · September 7, 2011
  • Melissa K.

    You think it's just a fancy cocktail bar, but the brunch is excellent. Skip the lines at Cafe Luluc and get the chorizo naked eggs. Good Bloody Mary too.

    Melissa Kirsch · August 7, 2011

    If you really know how to drink- with class and an appreciation for drunkenness- this is the best of the best.

    Jenny Gomez · May 19, 2011
  • Jay M.

    If you come for brunch, order the Kickflip. Or don't. I'm not the boss of you.

    Jay Miner · February 20, 2011
  • Ben H.

    "Improved" whiskey cocktail = whiskey + absinthe. My favorite drink in NY.

    Ben Harvey · October 24, 2010

    Bring friends and share a punch bowl. Or three.

    If you like Whiskey the "Improved Whiskey Cockatail" is a solid bet.
