One of the 100 Best New American Bars is right here in Spokane, according to Food & Wine magazine.
A cocktails editor picked Clover, 913 E. Sharp Ave., for the honor in the recently released Food & Wine Cocktails 2013 (although they mistakenly place the restaurant and bar in the Seattle-area section). Editors wrote, “Self-proclaimed liquor geek Kristi Gamble describes the cocktails on Clover’s comprehensive menu as crisp, exuberant, effervescent or current.”
Gamble is the bar manager and woman slinging cocktails at Clover. The man behind the bar concept is Paul Harrington, who helped revive classic cocktails in the late ’90s with his James Beard nominated book, “Cocktail: A Drinks Bible for the 21st Century.” One of his drinks, the Jasmine, was featured in the 2008 edition of Food & Wine Cocktails.
Need more excuses to check it out for yourself? Clover just launched its live music series on the patio and rolled out the new spring and summer menu. There are more details at http://cloverspokane.com .
