Great Bars 2011: Bourbon – Adams Morgan

These sibling bars in Glover Park and Adams Morgan are temples to those most American of spirits, bourbon and rye. Outfitted in raw brick and brushed steel, they appeal to both old-fashioned drinkers and cocktail revivalists. The extensive lists are worth a boozy browse, and the bartenders know how to pour a good Manhattan or Sazerac. There’s also a nice draft-beer list and a tasty menu of comfort-food classics including tater tots, mac and cheese, and fries smothered in Old Bay.
