The Club Car Restaurant & Piano Bar

Inventive craft cocktails in a raucous railroad car

By Catherine Smart

The Club Car may have gotten a major revamp last year, but its fun-loving spirit lives on. Housed in a vintage railroad car, expect to be packed in like sardines and enjoy every minute of the raucous sing-along that ensues every evening. Grab your friends, get there early to snag a spot near the piano, and order up some classic cocktails—or a house specialty like the fresh Garden Variety, featuring tequila, cucumber, lime, and verdita. We also love the Tree Top Flyer with Plantation 5-Year rum, Aperol, pineapple syrup, fresh lemon, and aquafaba: vacation in a glass. Take in the funky tiled floor and cheery aqua redesign, and don’t forget to order a bar snack from chef Mayumi Hattori’s excellent menu before the place gets too crowded.
