Best Bartender

Lane Harlan at W.C. Harlan

400 W 23rd St.

There’s a lot that goes into being a great bartender. Here are two essentials: First, a certain level of affability, a friendly demeanor that makes customers feel welcome. Second, technical skill. Sure, anybody can open up a cocktail guide book and learn to pour a martini. But who can pour a classic cocktail like that in both a timely and consistent manner? For both counts, we’ve found ourselves as repeat customers at W.C. Harlan, where proprietor Lane Harlan has brought a new level of thought and care to Baltimore’s drinking scene. Simply put, she gets everything right time after time, including the inventive new ways she crafts the cocktail of the day.
