In Lexington, Every Bar is a Bourbon Bar


Bourbon lovers and expert mixologists alike have flocked to these parts to participate in a truly authentic bourbon-drinking experience. When you're surrounded by 14 bourbon distilleries, you're guaranteed to have a few bourbon bars hanging around–more than a few, actually. Pull up a stool at one of Lexington's most iconic drinking holes, like the famous Bluegrass Tavern (known locally as "BGT"), which has the largest collection of individual bourbons in Kentucky. Afterwards, walk down to Main Street Crafting for some wildly inventive bourbon cocktails. But that's just the first pour, as we like to say around here. There's plenty more where that comes from.
