Our Southern list grew too this year, adding new bars like The Golden Rule in Georgetown, Texas, and Rebellion in North Carolina. While some bars stick to bourbon, spots like Yardbird and Local Three are serving up fun for the whole family with carry out feasts that serve 4-6. Frustratingly, a few bars from this region have had it doubly hard, closing not only for Covid, but also briefly for inclement weather as hurricane season hit hard. We’re ready and waiting for all our bars to be open – tap their links for more info on how you can support them in tough times. Here are America’s Best Bourbon Bars from the South!
