America's Best Cocktail Bars
Courtesy of The Clover Club
The Clover Club, Brooklyn
Owner Julie Reiner helped kick-start the classic cocktail trend nationwide from a Brooklyn bar imbued with wonderfully dated elegance. (Think: Persian carpets and an ornate Victorian backbar.) Order vintage drinks like fizzes or sours, or explore modern adaptations of the past, like the Duke Leto, made with Dubonnet, Old Tom Gin, Chartreuse, and salt tincture.
Check It Out: Clover Club serves up a selection of punches ($46 a bowl, serves several) built on the research of noted barfly and Brooklynite David Wondrich.
