This is your classic American bar right in the heart of the DC area. True to its namesake Bourbon offers almost every bourbon imaginable, along with a large variety of beer. If that is not enough for you, a wine dispenser allows the bartender to serve an array of wine of by the glass. The menu at Bourbon from the burgers to the crab cakes, is also AMAZING. This place is not to be missed.
