    Maker\'s Mark Lounge-- etc

    Made my first visit to the new lounge on 4th street the other day. I am very proud that all bourbons are represented, not just Makers. The furnishings are top class and the prices (for the boubon anyway) aren't too over the top. I was prepared for much higher prices, due to it's location. By the way, Falls City Beer is 99 cents, if you are into that! Still, I like the Flagship lounge at the Galt House for a good bourbon tasting. There's just something about 30 year old decor that makes the bourbon taste better! Where are your favorite bourbon haunts?

    In Louisville I like the bar at the Seelbach Hotel, conveniently located a block from the Maker's Mark Lounge if you want to compare them.

    Here in Chicago I like Delilah's. I also like my neighborhood joint, Nick's Uptown, and another nearby neighborhood joint called Jackie's (Jacqueline's, actually). Nick's and Jackie's have pretty good bourbon selections. Delilah's is great.

    yes- I neglected to mention the Seelbach. The live jazz on Saturday makes a great atmosphere. My wife and I have stayed there on several occasions. The Brown Hotel also does a fine job at promoting bourbon. Still, for bourbons like Blanton's at $18 a pour may make sampling bourbon a little pricey (that's hotel pricing for ya ). I forgot to mention that the Maker's bar has several flights of 3 different bourbons for around $15.
