Ah … whiskey. The drink of choice for those who like their spirits to pack some serious flavor. These bars offer everything from over-the-top whiskey lists to invite-only exclusivity. So what are you waiting for? Here are some of the best, must-see — or stumble out of — whiskey bars in the country.
1. Multnomah Whiskey Library in Portland, Ore.
With a semi-speakeasy feel and a reservation-only system, the Multnomah Whiskey Library is one of Portland’s swankiest hotspots for whiskey — and exclusivity — lovers who truly enjoy a sense of refinery. The venue holds an exhaustive collection representing all major, and lesser, styles of distilled spirits known to the modern world. With rolling step ladders and a unique, hands-on cocktail crafting process — the mixologists come directly to the table with portable bars to mix, make and pass out beverages — calling this bar a “library” is more than just a kitschy description… it’s an experience.
