Make your way to the back of Downtown’s Bar Calcson to find the hidden door to this thoughtfully elevated version of a well-loved dive bar. You’ll find easy-sipping and delicious housemade renditions of classic well drinks like Rhum & Coke and Vodka Cranberry, cleverly poured from a soda gun to cut down on wait time. Or opt for a shot and a cheap beer, that’s cool too. The mostly punk/metal soundtrack rounds out the slightly gritty vibe and the vintage pinball and arcade games are a great way to while away the hours in this bi-level hideaway.

Instagram friendly and very chill, The Slipper Clutch is a worth addition to the suddenly bar heavy Historic Core section of Broadway.  Slip through Bar Clacson to the back, where there's a door with posted hours--so it's not too hardcore of a speakeasy.  Neon lit with a few classic pinball machines and arcade games for ambiance, it's a slick space that nevertheless gives off a welcome no frills attitude.  If you're there on a night it's open, don't miss the upstairs area!  It's easy to as it's a simple concrete staircase at the back of the space.  Upstairs, great decor and more games await, as well as a second bar.  Great to spend the night at or include in a crawl of the rest of Broadway's gems.
