WHY HERE: The Clumsies is an all-day megaplex of bar, lounge and restaurant. It’s the perfect place to linger from morning until night, when the party really gets going. The pops of color and texture in the space are as pleasantly surprising as those in the cocktail creations, especially in the more formal upstairs space known as The Playroom.
WHY NOW: A new cocktail tome is unveiled annually, with each space offering its own menu. Upstairs in the playroom, experimentation rules the day, while a focus on both fresh ingredients and fermentation can be found in the basement, and more straightforward though well-made and delicious libations are home on the main floor.
