WHY HERE: Not your average dive bar, this spot serves cocktails that are a cut above. It’s whiskey-focused, with more than 500 bottlings, including some rarities. The bar plays vinyl, and the playlist often consists of entire albums.
WHY NOW: It’s a popular, often crowded spot after work or on weekends. Bartenders also love hanging out here during their off-hours. Many swear the Tater Tots along are worth the trip.
