The Best Bourbon Bars in Chicago

Bourbon… ah the stuff dreams are made of. That is, if you can dream clearly after a night of drinking the delicious amber booze. Bourbon, America's true homegrown spirit, is a favorite of many bartenders and cocktail aficionados. You can drink it in an Old Fashioned or in a glass with a cube or two, in a Manhattan or as a shot. Distilleries like Old Rip Van Winkle create huge demand for rare releases of Pappy Van Winkle, but everyday sippers like Buffalo Trace and Makers Mark also have helped propel bourbon's popularity. Chicago has countless fantastic bars that focus on bourbon—and whiskey in general. This list of bars is a mere snapshot. If every great spot were listed, you’d never stop reading.
