The Manhattan Project
Instead of constructing atomic bombs, this upscale sports bar specializes in crafting Manhattan cocktails, offering an impressive selection of bourbon inside an Americana space in Clifton. As you gaze up at the big game on flat-screens beside an exposed-brick wall painted with a sweeping American flag mural, you can pair your Manhattan with inventive twists on classic comfort foods, like a grilled cheese with pork belly, Brie, and apple-onion marmalade, or at brunch, fried chicken & waffle tacos (yes, you read that right).
Class up the Big Game at this handsome Clifton gastropub. Industrial-chic touches (think whitewashed brick, garage-style doors, exposed ducts, and soaring hangar-like ceilings) set the tone for buttoned-up hooliganism as a multitude of TVs broadcast every matchup imaginable and revelers fill up on signature cocktails, craft beers, and upmarket bar bits like Chesapeake Oysters on the half-shell, Blackened Ahi Tuna, Truffle Fries, Flatbreads, and Risotto. Sundays bring $5 draft beers to the table for your football-watching pleasure.
