Julie Reiner of Flatiron Lounge’s much-anticipated new cocktail bar, Clover Club, opens Wednesday after a private party tomorrow. As Rob and Robin have it, fried oysters and pressed cheesesteaks will be served at the circa-1892 mahogany bar — other menu items include steak tartare, a charcuterie plate, a lamb-and-goat-cheese burger, and molasses-and-cumin-rubbed “chicken drumettes” with Roquefort fondue. The 78-seat Victorian-inspired lounge will sell wines by the half-bottle and Brooklyn beers as well as international varieties. What we really care about, of course, are the cocktails, so it’s with trembling hands that we post the drinks list here. Bit of trivia: The illustrations of women straddling cocktail glasses are similar to the ones on the Submercer’s menu— they’re from an old cocktail book titled Bottom’s Up. The drinks, mercifully, are a buck or two cheaper.
