Clayton’s is a Victorian-themed bar located in the heavily-trafficked Spring Arcade downtown. This place really misses the mark. The cocktails are poorly made, the food is boring, and the cheesy 19th-century parlor aesthetic is reminiscent of the Mall of America's ground floor. If you’re roaming around downtown and want to stop in for a quick beer before heading to your next spot, Clayton’s is fine. Otherwise, you don’t need to come here.
