Oh Clockwork. The term “dive bar” is thrown around a lot, but Clockwork sets the precedent. It’s dark and grungy, small and often crowded, and you’ll have to yell over the music, for the most part. Almost every inch of this place is covered in graffiti- walls, tables, chairs, all of it. It’s beautiful. Remember that punk-squatter house from the1998 film SLC Punk? Clockwork is that house and is home to that crowd. You’ll either get a beer or a simple soda/tonic and some kind of liquor, and you’ll like it, dammit. Somewhat intense, Clockwork has a “punks only” atmosphere, but not in a negative way. As long as you can keep up and look tough, you’ll have fun. Official Website
