The Best Bourbon Bars in the Midwest are all about the hospitality. First stop – the Windy City. We’ve gone so far as to call Chicago a Bourbon Oasis, because although they’re a six hour drive from Bourbon Country, they feature the highest numbers of bars in one place outside Kentucky. Old favorites like Delilah’s have been in the business for decades, but we’ve also found fresh faces like Mordecai, a new cocktail bar in Wrigleyville serving up pours from rare vintage bottles. And for something surprising, try Big Star, where they skip tequila to feature bourbon with their popular tacos.

Beyond Chicago, we’ve added newcomer The Sugar House to our list, where guests can choose from over 100 cocktails on two different menus, classics and seasonal. For those who love bourbon in the Buckeye State, Dayton dive The Century Bar is a steady favorite. Read on for the Midwest Region on our list of America’s Best Bourbon Bars!
