Cocktail Bar

“Clover Club has all the elegance and luxury of an Upper East Side bar infused with the relaxed vibes of Brooklyn. Enjoy the company of friends and family next to their cozy fireplace while you listen to jazz on one of their many jazz nights. This bar offers both evening and brunch cocktails, including the ‘Bloody Maria’ – a twist on the classic cocktail with blancotequila.”

“Pub in a former carriage house offering locally sourced beer & snacks plus live events. Also just generally a cool, large, skylight-filled space with excellent weekend brunch choices. Again, as not-brunch people, that's saying quite a lot.”
