Clover Club
This standard-bearing cocktail parlor from mixology matriarch Julie Reiner (Lani Kai) expresses its Victorian bent in intricate tile work, curved leather booths, marble tables, vintage sofas and a functioning fireplace. The centerpiece is the 19th-century mahogany bar, where vest-clad barkeeps stir and shake throwback potions, handily defined in the novel-like menu. Choose among regal crystal bowls of punch or finely wrought drinks, both classic and new. The Improved Whiskey Cocktail lives up to its name with an oversize ice cube mellowing a brawny blend of rye, maraschino liqueur, bitters and absinthe. Call for an order of house chips fried in duck fat, or a cheese plate featuring wedges sourced from neighborhood fromagerie Stinky Bklyn to keep you moored.

There comes a moment in every cocktail where the temperature, flavor and viscosity peaks to strike a perfect balance. I like to call it the sweet spot and Clover Club has perfected this short-lived pinnacle with their ice, glass and cocktail creations. The drinks don't come quickly here but they're well worth the wait.

Oh, and if you're lucky you'll get a seat in the back room by the fireplace.
