Copper and Oak – If you like whiskey – or wondered

Copper and Oak is by far the most orange lit bar I’ve ever been to. It not only makes for great pictures, but it has an amazing atmosphere. But really, it’s just the best god damned bar for an amazing selection of whiskey

This is the kind of place where you don’t come for fancy music or people, but feel like you are getting amazing one on one service with the best whiskey you could find. It’s got an amazing design, great barkeeps who make it their goal to satisfy your whiskey needs, and a super chill atmosphere. Be aware it’s TINY, it is not meant for huge crowds. It is very intimate and down to earth and your best conversation will be with the guy serving you your dark liquor!

(no cocktails, no jazz) 

I was lucky enough to try the Ardberg “Alligator” whiskey which is no longer produced. They have an array of all sorts of whiskey, scotch, brandy, mezcal, and anything of the like. They even offer a sampling portion for half the price which is always a nice way to head into a non committal relationship.

I would highly recommend coming in for a drink when you are tired of crazy sounds and thumping music. Maybe as an Apéritif before a nice dinner. It will definitely get you into the romantic, glamorous mood. 

and … keep it neat…
