Brendan Sodikoff took over the ’30s-era cocktail bar last year, and it’s still wonderfully low-key with live music, a jukebox and glowing red lights—but now with better drinks. Try the elegant gin and raspberry Clover Club. In addition, a live music schedule ranges from jazz to country and covers are $4-$10, depending on the show.

This is one of my favorite bars to go to with friends. It's a great space, has an incredible throwback vibe. The drinks are fantastic! Make sure to try the Pago Pago Shaved Ice, they shave the ice right at the bar so it's fun to see them make the drink. They also have live music in the evenings which is a blast.
