Hard Water

WHY HERE: Hard Water is a whiskey bar for those ready to drink the brown stuff in environs that eschew the traditional ambiance of dark wood and leather. You can order the liquor straight or in a superbly made cocktail or go all out and get a flight of whiskey. (The local one is a great way to get into California spirits.)

WHY NOW: In addition to a stellar array of rare bottles, the New Orleans–themed cocktails and small plates are exceptional, with a requisite nod to present Kentucky in creations like the Derby Cocktail Tropical (bourbon, pineapple, lemon and mint).
