Best Bourbon Bar


2218 Boston St., (410) 534-2337,

For those of you who want to plop down on a barstool and enjoy some good ol’ American-grown corn spirit, few places are as dependable as Bartenders. Opened almost a decade ago by four former bartenders, this spot has become a hub for local bourbon fans. They keep more than 20 bottles on the shelf, and it’s one of the few bars in the city sporting the likes of Triple Smoked and hard-to-find fave Black Maple Hill (they generally have Red Label handmade available, and the 14- and 20-year varieties are constantly on order). They even carry super-small-batch Belle Meade, whose owner happened to be sitting at the bar, drinking, on a recent evening. And the knowledgeable staff will help you decide if you’re new to the whole single-batch bourbon thing. Who needs the snooty Macallan Scotch when you can down a shot of smooth Kentucky gold?
