The speakeasy-style bar serves up more than 80 varieties of the spirit—neat, shaken, or stirred. Cocktails combine traditional ingredients with contemporary flavors, including themed creations like the “Commodore” with bourbon, orange bitters, and lime, and the “Philadelphia Fish House Punch” with dark rum, sweet apricot brandy, spiced sugar, and aromatic tea.

The Pope House Bourbon, Portland, Oregon

Traditional Kentucky-style bourbon forms the backbone of Portland’s Pope House. The bar hand-selects its bottles from Kentucky distilleries and also offers an extensive spirit list with rare, top-shelf liquors. Visitors can also enjoy the bar’s “Bourbon Derby” program, which allows guests to sample 50 varieties of bourbon. Successful entrants receive a horseshoe as a prize.

Seven Grand, Los Angeles

Los Angeles’s Seven Grand takes its whiskey seriously: The bar features an “international wall of whiskey” with selections from North America to Asia, and a “Whiskey Society” meeting with tastings hosted by master distillers. True to its name, the bar also offers a sampling of rare, top-dollar spirits: Visitors can sip on a glass of Jameson Vintage 2009 for $55, or opt for a 55-year-old single malt Scotch for a cool $1,200.

Sanctuaria Tapas, St. Louis

Best known for its tapas, Sanctuaria is quickly making a name for itself as a popular whiskey bar. Mixologist Matt Seitler whips up custom cocktails with house made liqueurs and bitters, and he creates a rotating menu of inventive, seasonal drinks: The “High Top” features Rittenhouse Rye, Benedictine, and Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters, while “A Star is Born” includes star anise-infused bourbon, Vida Mezcal, and cinnamon syrup. Guests can also enjoy “tickles & jiggers,” small one- or two-ounce pours of any of the bar’s whiskeys and bourbons.

Whiskey Kitchen, Nashville, Tennessee

For warm Southern hospitality and a diverse collection of spirits, look no further than Nashville’s Whiskey Kitchen. The brightly-lit bar and restaurant serves up some of the best tipples the South has to offer, including George Dickel No. 8, Woodford Reserve, and Big Dog Blackberry. Adventurous drinkers can opt for one- or two-ounce pours, or try one of the bar’s whiskey concoctions: Favorites include the “Maple Manhattan” with Four Roses and maple syrup, and the “Marmalade Whiskey Sour” with Bernheim Wheat Whiskey and orange marmalade.
