You don’t have to know the difference between whiskey and whisky to enjoy this three-story watering hole at the base of Adams Morgan—though the global collection of 1,500-plus bottles is the main attraction. The elegant first-floor saloon, complete with high shelves and rolling ladders, is the best place to expand your brown-liquor knowledge with helpful bartenders and an extensive cocktail list. It’s also a refuge on weekend nights, when a hard-partying crowd claims the terrace and outdoor tiki bar. Insider tip: A newly opened cellar bar with a shelf of antique bottles can be booked in advance for private tastings. Open daily.
