The Bar Exam: These American Mixology Spots Pass the Test

Comments  (1)

Feb 4, 2013 —  A cold beer, a glass of wine, or a shot of your choice liquor isn’t always going to hit the spot. Sometimes you want something classier, more elegant, or simply a blend of a few of your favorite tasting elixirs to help you reach that welcome buzz on a weekend or after a long day of work.

That’s why it’s imperative to make it to one of the many mixology bars or lounges in the United States. Instead of settling for a simple ale or whiskey, treat your taste buds to a greater intensity of flavor, courtesy of a drink created by an expert mixologist.

Your taste buds will thank you for visiting LA speakeasies The Varnish or The Roger Room, which both offer a cool ambiance in addition to their fresh drink choices. Or head to Boston, where the genius cocktail chefs at Drink will concoct a custom libation for you after they quiz you about your likes, dislikes, and current mood.

You can also journey to the unmarked lounge The Gibson in Washington, DC for an intimate, candlelit experience made special by vintage cocktails like their rich Japanese Cocktail that features brandy and orgeat syrup.

Expand your taste horizons by stopping at one of the top mixology spots in the U.S. However, keep in mind that once you visit one of these fine speakeasies, lounges, or bars, a simple beer or glass of wine might never taste the same.
