The walls of this 10th Avenue restaurant are lined with big screen TVs. While you're there, be sure to try one of their drink specials named after Clyde's signature phrases like the "Winning & Grinning" (raspberry vodka, triple sec, ginger liqueur and cranberry) or the "Dancing & Prancing" (bourbon, apricot jam and sage).
