America’s 80 Best Bourbon Bars

South Region

Yardbird Southern Table and Bar, Miami, FL:  If we told you that one of the hottest restaurants in Miami uses Bourbon as a backbone to its menu would you believe us?  Any doubters can head over to the Bourbon haven known as Yardbird to enjoy one of their Bourbon flights, or cool down with their signature drink, Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade.

Old Hickory Whiskey Bar, Pensacola, FL: With over 400 whiskies and Bourbon leading that category with over 150, Old Hickory should be added to the itinerary next time you’re on the Florida Panhandle.

The Standard Pour, Dallas, TX

Julep House, Houston, TX

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.

Local Three, Atlanta, GA

Mac McGee, Decatur, GA

The Crunkleton, Chapel Hill, NC    

Husk, Charelston, SC

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.

Patterson House, Nashville, TN

Husk, Nashville, TN:  Like it’s sister spot in Charleston, S.C., Husk has an outstanding program.  The Nashville location also has a list of very rare old Bourbons that patrons can sip on.

Peter Kern Library, Knoxville, TN

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.

Kenton’s, New Orleans, LA:
