The Clover Club Is Coming
There's been some construction going on on Smith Street for a while now, around the former location of Johnnie's Bootery. I wasn't sure what it was all about until last week when they put up a sign saying Clover Club.
Woo-hoo! The Clover Club is coming! I've been hearing about this cocktail joint for some time and it seems it's to be a reality. The fine folks who brought you the Flatiron Lounge are behind the new bar, and I can't think of a finer name. The Clover Club is a lovely, under-recognized egg-based drink from days gone by, and it's right that it's so honored. Can't tell when it will open.
Between this and Sasha (Milk and Honey) Petraske's Weather Up in Prospect Heights, good times are coming to Brooklyn!
