Whitechapel
review by Erik Tennyson

For a religious experience with gin, make the pilgrimage to Whitechapel in the Tenderloin. Named after the famous East End district where “mother’s ruin” poured freely while Jack the Ripper was lurking in the alleyways, the space looks like a tube ...Read the full review

review by Erik Tennyson

Smuggler’s Cove
review by Erik Tennyson

Behind a veneer of tinted glass on a quiet block in Hayes Valley, Smuggler’s Cove looks like it was decorated by Captain Hook after a few too many Mai Tais. The drink menu features more than 80 cocktails from every corner of ...Read the full review

ABV

If you’re looking for mezcal, stop by this Mission District bar.

Trick Dog
review by Erik Tennyson

Home base of the Bon Vivants, the cocktail and design firm run by Josh Harris and Scott Baird, Trick Dog is as famous for its menu design and conceptual hijinks as for the cocktails themselves. The current menu, a Dr. Seuss–inspired ...Read the full review

Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails
review by Eric Vrtis

Chartreuse is the color and focus of this space in Midtown, a stone’s throw from the Detroit Institute of Arts. Owner Sandy Levine has amassed an enviable collection of the French digestif, with bottles dating back to the 1940s, plus Elixir Végétal, Liqueur du 9e Centenaire ...Read the full review

BlackTail
review by Deanna Gonnella

Like The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, which takes its name from the Irish gang that terrorized Lower Manhattan in the mid-1800s, the newest place from Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon commemorates another piece of NYC ...Read the full review

Achilles Heel
review by Zach B. Siegel

This neighborhood bar, from Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow, excels in simple pleasures. John Connolly’s wine list favors the rustic and the versatile, shining a light on unheralded French wines, from Aveyron to Vin de France, most well under $100. Chef Lee Desrosiers’ menu, which changes daily, re-imagines the possibilities ...Read the full review

Income Tax
review by John Lenart

A wine bar named after a classic cocktail, a bottle list that outsells by-the-glass selections, and a menu designed around the wine list: This is Income Tax, a new reason to head to Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Owner Nelson Finch ...Read the full review

The Treasury
review by Erik Tennyson

The Treasury, set in the airy marble interior of the Beaux Arts Standard Oil Building, offers a pleasant escape from the packed streets of the Financial District. Unwind while sipping on a Smoke & Mirrors (Anchor Old Tom Gin, smoked tea, pineapple gomme, bitters). Or forgo the cocktails for ...Read the full review

Prizefighter
review by Erik Tennyson

After stints at Bourbon & Branch and Beretta in SF, Jon Santer crossed the Bay in 2011 to open Prizefighter in Emeryville. The drinks lean toward brisk refreshment rather than spirituous weight, perfect companions to the large outdoor patio and the East Bay’s fog-free afternoons. Start with a Oaxacan ...Read the full review
