On a strip known for potent slushy drinks, vodka sodas and bottled beers, Replay stands out not only for having a fun and vast collection of old school stand-up video games and pinball machines, but also for its bourbon offering. Who says bourbon can’t be fun? (Answer: nobody.) Here’s it all about having a good time, but Replay’s collection is also pretty serious. Case in point: the full range of Pappy Van Winkle and single barrel offerings like Blanton’s, Elmer T Lee and Henry McKenna. So while some guys may want to head up the Boystown strip to dance and do Fireball shots, you can pop in here, grab an Old Fashioned or Manhattan and head out to the back patio and chill with good conversation.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Old Fashioned made with Heaven Hill’s 92 proof high-wheat bourbon Larceny, Steen’s cane syrup and Bitter Queens tobacco bitters, shipped direct from San Francisco.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
All the video games are free, so save your quarters for that glass of 23-Year Pappy.
