    Best Bourbon Bars

    Is there some sort of "Straight Bourbon Approved" list of the best bourbon bars in the US?

    What makes me think of it is the list released by the Bourbon Review of America's 55 Best Bourbon Bars.

    Selection is limited here by the wonderful state of Ohio, but within those limitations, Century Bar in Dayton is as good as it gets.

    Thanks for that link, I'm about to check it out (hoping there's one in AZ).

    There's a place here in Phoenix called Magnum's that's supposed to have an excellent selection, haven't made it there quite yet, though the wife promised we could go on the next 'date night'.

    Best Bourbon Bars

    I'll throw one more but note I have not been here.

    Boneyard Bistro.
    Huge selection of very good bourbon and at IMO fairly reasonable prices, considering. I'm actually quite impressed.

    Example - PVW 20 - $20 and Saz 18 - $15

    Those prices are so reasonable that it's practically offensive.

    Hahaha. Agreed.

    I had a thread here and it appears no one has been there yet but it appears legitimate.

    We have a local chain of burger places here in Connecticut (and expanding) called Plan B. The B's being Burgers, Beef, Beer & Bourbon. So they have a fairly decent selection. But personally I prefer Krust in Middletown, CT; a pizza & bourbon bar. More selection, pricing is about the same, great food and better cocktails.

    That list is retarded 88 bourbons? Today on Delilah's back bar I can count 174 Bourbons, and a total aggregate of Whiskey (Bourbon, Rye, American, Scotch, International etc) over 600 bottles. Bourbons not on the back bar but in the liquor room and able to call on at any time would number the total number of bourbons well over 200. So if that list is so wrong about us, then they can't be trusted on the others.

    Also for Chicago I'd add Fountainhead, it's where us in the Bourbon Biz go to drink bourbon, as well as Barrel House Flat.

    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Oh good, there are no bars in Indy on the list. I was afraid that I was missing something.
