Had a great time trying a few bourbons and whiskeys. Dinner was very good. Had the strip steak and it was good deal for about $28. Bartender named Dave was very good at making recommendations. He introduced me to High West Distillery-Yippee Ki-yay & One Eight Distillery # 6. He recommended the #7, but they were out. He called down... More

Bourbon, bourbon and more bourbon. Oh, and a few selections of scotch and beer. The name is appropriate, they have a massive selection of bourbons to choose from. Service is good and the setting has a great vibe. The outdoor patio is great when the weather is accommodating.

Bourbon gets packed late at night, but it's a very nice place for happy hour with friends. We sat on the back patio. Good happy hour specials!

I am not a fan of Adams Morgan (especially not when it comes to food), but I am happy to have found the exception. Bourbon offers good service, reasonable prices, delicious food, and a not-too-crowded bar environment. I will definitely be going back for the buttered chicken, but the menu offers a variety of options (including gluten-free and kale). Highly... More

We stopped in around 9 pm and enjoyed some bourbon cocktails with light appetizers, nuggets and deviled eggs. Drinks were good and the ambience was also wonderful.

I'm quite partial to Bourbon as a pleasant neighborhood place with v good comfort food -- and of course a fine selection of bourbons. Depending on when you go it can get a bit noisy, but off-hours it's fine, and when the weather cooperates, the back patio is delightful. Service is not what you'd call polished but the staff are...

Unlike many of the Adams Morgan restaurants, the outdoor seating here is tucked away in the back. Nice quiet courtyard. Food was a little bland but very fresh and reasonably priced. If you are a bourbon or whiskey drinker this is the place for you with an extensive 4 page menu. For everything else it is serviceable. The patio does... More

We read about the bourbon flights offered here, which is why we went. Very small, kinda loud. Bourbon was excellent, food was meh. Service was definitely meh, too. But in an area that specializes in ethnic eateries, you can at least understand what you're ordering!

Great place. Go for the chilli with the macaroni and chesse in the bottom on the bowl... TRUST ME! Oh, and get and order of fries to go with that. Truly a tasty troika. And another treat--OBERON (a summertime Ann Arbor favorite)!
