    Jack Rose was already the city's (maybe even the country's) top whiskey bar. Now, there's solid Southern food to match, courtesy of chef Russell Jones. Read more

    Always solid cocktail options, plus all the whiskey you'd ever like to try! Downstairs bar is gorgeous, but if its crowded, you can usually find a spot upstairs.

    A huge selection of whiskey but there's little in the way of helpful flights, and you can't count on the staff's recommendations. If busy, avoid the noisy semi-outdoor sports bar upstairs.

    The vaulted library of whiskey is unprecedented. The upstairs bar/patio is a great place for a cigar and a glass of red wine. Giant fans keep the space well-ventilated, but they are murder on my hair.
