There are nearly as many varieties of bar as there are types of drinks inside them: dive bars, biker bars, cigar bars, casino bars, college bars, piano bars, topless bars, nightclubs, concert venues… Then, of course, there are the bars at some of the metro region’s top restaurants, where you can find some of the city’s best mixologists. Equally passionate are the people behind the area’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries. In fact, some of the best places to grab a drink are at these cousins to the humble bar—topics that call for entirely separate cover features. But to keep this list tightly curated, we limited this month’s cover feature strictly to traditional drinking establishments, those beyond the aforementioned spots. Cheers!
