We all want to visit a bar where everyone knows our name—but what if we went to one where everyone knew our favorite spirit? Whiskey bars, which offer that luxury, are growing in popularity and have become a welcome alternative to neighborhood tippling spots and upscale wine lounges. Visitors can get a taste of classic Southern spirits in a laid-back environment, discovering unique pours that have been around since Prohibition. Whether you’re sipping a bourbon cocktail at Seattle’s Rob Roy or enjoying a whiskey on the rocks at D.C.’s Jack Rose Dining Saloon, you’ll gain a greater appreciation for the classic American spirit. Here are our picks for America’s best whiskey bars.
