Wow. Fancy spot. I attended an event on the 3rd floor and the space was gorgeous. The bar is just as hip and cool as any place I've been to in Chicago. But the cocktails aren't $18 each because we are in the blessed state of Iowa. I loved the ambiance of this place. The drinks were great. The food was good, but I didn't eat much. This would be a great date night location or a place to host an upscale party.
The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was wonderful (an old fashioned feel). We ordered cheese curds, a salad, fish and chips, a burger, and finished with cheesecake. All items were absolutely delicious. They should definitely expect me back!
Clinton Street was great. I've been wanting to come visit for years now after stumbling across it looking for good cocktail spots in the state. The staff and management were all phenomenal people. I can't say enough good things about them. The cocktails were stellar. We started with the oysters and some house cocktails off the menu that were all exceptionally done. Later, the bartenders and staff brought out a few different individually customized cocktails for us to try and they were all impressive and spot on. The burger was exceptional. Salmon cakes were solid. All in all I really loved my visit and glad I was able to make it happen. I am very grateful for my experience and they way were treated by everyone at Clinton Street. Highly recommended if you're looking for a laid back atmosphere with first rate cocktails, great food, and even better people to be around. Thank you and best of luck to you all!
