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.
Our menus feature seasonal, made-from-scratch items showcasing fresh, local, organic produce, and hormone-free proteins. All cocktail juices are squeezed fresh daily and all house tonics, bitters, syrups and tinctures made bi-weekly. Our ever changing cocktail, beer and wine lists are crafted slowly with attention to seasonality and collaboration with local growers and producers. Learn about our sourcing.
Craving a change of scenery for your next big event or dinner party? Our beautiful third floor space and the full restaurant are both available for private booking.
