Before '09: Terrible on the senses, packed, overpriced cover.
Now: Nice on the senses, packed, overpriced cover.
Clybourne's has been on a streak of hotness ever since it re-opened to crowds of patrons excited by its total makeover. I have to admit, the place looks damn good. In fact, nearly all of my friends have shifted their weekend habits to Cly's. I was "guided" there by peer pressure on both Friday and Saturday this week and both nights were a near repeat of each other: a frozen line (maybe everyone couldn't move in the 30F degree weather), a slightly-expensive $5 cover, and a completely packed venue. However, the warm atmosphere and birthday celebrations more than made up for the previous difficulties.
Clybourne's is in my top 3 list of bars on the UIUC campus.
