Saloon’s focus is whiskey, with a full-page selection offered straight or in a Manhattan or old-fashioned. True to Saloon’s speakeasy theme, pass through a nondescript doorway and down a flight of stairs and grab a seat at the massive bar. Just make sure you stake out a corner away from that group of English grads who are a little too excited by the Gatsby-esque vibe.
