IOWA CITY'S PREMIER GASTROPUB

 

After extensive renovations to the tattered and abandoned 2nd and 3rd floors of the 1920's brick and mortar at 18 ½ South Clinton Street, the Social Club opened on September 6, 2012 as Iowa City's only true gastropub, speakeasy, and dedicated live jazz venue.

With charming views of the Pentacrest and Old Capitol, The Clinton Street Social Club is an unmatched destination for fine dining, private events, live jazz and authentic craft cocktails. 

18 ½ South Clinton St, Iowa City, Iowa |  open daily, 4 pm - late

My husband and I come through Iowa City every summer and always make a point to spend our only night there at the Clinton Street Social Club. Not only is the service delightful, but the food and atmosphere are something I look forward to. We both value and enjoy fresh, locally sourced foods that are prepared with skill and imagination. So please, keep doing what you’re doing.

The Clinton Street Social Club has captured and time-locked the feeling of a truly indulgent speakeasy, complete with over 30 different delicious cocktail ‘libations’, ranging from the classic to the extravagant concoctions. Gastronomical treats and live jazz and blues music are all served with unadulterated enthusiasm well into the late night. The selection of whiskeys and beers never fails to impress.
