    Amazing Old Fashioned on Rye. Decent cooking, a bit pricey.

    This Adams Morgan spot has more than 400 American whiskeys, hence the name. The bar starts with basics like Woodford Reserve and Maker's Mark but also has more obscure options. Read more

    Take advantage of their daily drink specials such as $5 bourbon, $4 off craft cocktails, and $2 off all draft beer. Order a local cheese plate for $12 and sit back and relax. Read more

    Don't bring a real ID here, they don't accept them. You're better off trying to use a fake. And spoiler alert: New York IDs are not laminated and passports are, in fact, issued by the government.

    Friend was pick pocketed here (~$1000 stolen from accounts) and Bourbon had no security cameras. Be wary of your purse/bag!

    Bitches Say C+! Bourbon is a great go-to for delicious, unhealthy food (think tater tots, grilled cheese, and doughnuts). In general, we love both the cuisine and the ambiance.

    I will continue to visit their brunch. It is amazing, but as a bar it's awful. They are the slowest bartenders in Adams Morgan. have bartender in amo for 5 years so I can attest to this.

    Order a bourbon that is actually available (seems like they're always out of the one I want to try...). Waffle fries are great, and you can't go wrong with the tots if you need a snack with your bev. Read more

    "Bourbon" is the name, but don't overlook the well selected beer list. Tater tots and grilled cheese sandwiches seem a bit out of place, but they're just fine as comfort food.

    give the sliders a go, and some chili mac while you're at it. In fact, all the food here is pretty damn tasty.
