Cocktail culture might reach for the old-school glass by coupe glass, but Clover Club is Julie Reiner’s brick-and-mortar Cobble Hill tribute. Named after a group of journalists who gathered at Philadelphia’s Bellevue Hotel for intermittent drinking and heckling at the turn of the 20th century, the modern day Clover Club has less to do with bon mots than seriously good cocktails (though the interior does transport you to more genteel times, down to the late 19th century mahogany bar, fireplace, and heavy velvet curtains). And with mixologists like Franky Marshall, Tom Macy, and 2010 New York Rising Star Mixologist Brad Farran behind the menu of originals and updated classics, patrons are certain to feel as politely, sophisticatedly intoxicated as their turn-of-the century forebears.
