Yardbird Southern Table and Bar, Miami, FL: If we told you that one of the hottest restaurants in South Beach uses Bourbon as a backbone to its menu would you believe us? Any doubters can head over to the Bourbon oasis known as Yardbird to enjoy one of their Bourbon flights, or cool down with their signature drink, Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade.
Southern Art and Bourbon Bar, Atlanta, GA: It doesn’t get much better for a Bourbon aficionado to see a wall of Bourbon that reaches the high ceiling inside the lobby of the hotel they’re staying at. This bar offers that sight, along with personal select barrels of Four Roses Bourbon.
Whiskey Kitchen, Nashville, TN: Plenty of Bourbons to pair with great Southern fare, such as the Fried Green Tomato BLT and the Southerner, a giant biscuit topped with gravy, a fried egg and cheddar cheese with fried chicken as a side option.
Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House, New Orleans, LA: With almost 100 Bourbons to offer, this certainly is a house of Bourbon. Coupled with the service and culinary standards you expect from the Brennan name, this place is a must stop the next time you’re wondering through the French Quarter.
