It’s no secret that Clive’s Classic Lounge is an institution for Victoria’s cocktail fanatics, having accumulated more Top 10 nods than any other cocktail bar in Canada. There’s always something new and exciting happening here, keeping Clive’s at the forefront of the ever-evolving cocktail culture.
Of all his recent projects, some of which include private venue rentals & mixology events, an elevated food program, and launching into the NFT space, Bar Manager/ Executive Bar Keep Shawne Soole is most excited about the return of patio season.
The Terrace at Clive’s just reopened for the summer season. It’s a 25-seat, fully covered urban oasis serving designer cocktails and bites from Tuesday through Saturday. Their deliciously icy Frappes (slushies for grownups) have also made a come-back, as well as their exclusive gin & tonic cart.
Clive’s A-list team is excited about getting back out in the fresh air and providing yet another layer of freshly unique cocktail experiences to locals and visitors alike. There’s nothing typical about what Clive’s is putting out these days.
“Finding opportunities to diversify the market is top of mind” for Shawn as he continues to surprise his most loyal followers with his innovation and persistent social engagement in social media. Find them as @clivesclassiclounge.
