Lonely Planet review

The Clipper's retro linoleum and Naugahyde decor hasn't changed much since it opened in 1937. Guys in bowling shirts and ladies in thrift store dresses dig the cheap cocktails and weekend bands (often alt-country tinged). Eventually curiosity will lead you try the house drink: the purple martin, a fizzy mix of grape soda and coconut rum.
