The dark-stuff pros from Whiskey Town and Whiskey Brooklyn are behind this New York–inspired watering hole. The bar serves cocktails like the Downtown Tea (raspberry vodka, triple sec, iced tea and lemon) and six on-tap brews, including Guinness, Blue Moon and Brooklyn Lager. After throwing down the joint's signature Spicyback—a whiskey shot with a pepper-infused pickle-juice chaser—snack on a bowl of bacon, served with maple syrup and blue-cheese dressing. Wednesday nights feature the acoustic sounds of local musicians, a mellow reprieve from the weekend's DJ-spun Top 40 playlist.

Whiskey Tavern is one of my favorite places to go on the weekends or for a nice night out during the week. They always have great specials and their atmosphere is fun. It’s also the perfect place to take a date. The food is pretty standard fare, and is good, but nothing incredible. Mostly, its just a great place to drop into on the way home from work, watch the game or catch up with friends. The prices are reasonable as well, so you won’t have to empty your wallet to have a good time. NYC could do with a lot more places like this.
