WHY HERE: Billing itself as an “American pub,” this Austin eatery delivers on standards and unique drinks alike. And though it’s pretty quiet about its whiskey selection, it’s all there. Someone even broke into the bar a few years back to steal a few bottles (though they won’t say which).
WHY NOW: Despite its own #MeToo moment (the bar shut down for several weeks in 2017 in light of an internal sexual assault case), Drink.Well. reemerged under female ownership with a new menu, new staff and new lease on life.
