Clive’s Classic Lounge Wins International Recognition!

Posted in By mark

To all guests and fellow staff,


Yesterday I found out that Clive’s has been nominated for “Best International Hotel Bar” at Tales of the Cocktail 2014, the Olympics of the craft bartending world. We are honored and proud to be considered for this award. Just under one year ago Clive’s the bartending team, who also earned this same nomination in 2011 and 2012, moved on to open Little Jumbo. This changing of the guards gave Katie and I the opportunity to take on the extraordinary reputation Shawn and Nate built at Clive’s and continue to build and promote cocktail development while maintaining consistent standards of quality and care in every cocktail we make. I’m extremely happy with how well this new chapter at Clive’s has been received. It’s been a blast creating our own, fun, and fervent dimension to the menu and atmosphere, Thank you for your support and faith in our abilities. This nomination is a testament to the fact that we are not only maintaining the reputation that had been developed over the past few years, but we are progressing in our craft and the global cocktail industry is noticing what we have done over the past year. The support of our patrons and Victoria’s cocktail community has been nothing short of amazing, this truly is world class cocktail city.
