Make 54 West in Clawson your go-to spot to Relax— Drink— Eat. The refined interior boasts a unique copper bar, wooden walls, and sophisticated tufted booths along with elegant crystal chandeliers. Outside, the extensive patio is an oasis of serenity closed in with a rustic fencing and landscaping to keep out the fast-pace of everyday life. The copper bar continues outside as pergolas above shade you for a relaxed experience, and comfortable lounge seating surrounds several fire & ice pits and tables.
Whether inside or outside, you can enjoy a hand crafted cocktail mixed by our friendly and experienced mixologists. “Craft cocktails” are cocktails that focus on flavor and high-quality ingredients tailored specifically for your drink. You will see drinks served in custom glassware, poured over custom ice cubes, mixed with house-made syrups and finished with a dash of small-batch bitters. You might see traditional spirits used, but you also might see unexpected barrel-aged liquors that are prepared by bartenders and other unusual flavor combinations. Craft cocktails may take a little longer to make, but the experience will be memorable! Whether simple or complex, the results are quality cocktails that are made with a lot more care than your usual mixed drinks and deliver a more satisfying experience.
Our food menu incorporates a variety of specialty dishes that can be shared...or kept all to yourself! Our experienced and passionate chefs pride themselves on using fresh, quality (and local, when possible) ingredients to create unique dishes to please every palate.
